  Tabanus: First!

Don't click the pocal, the winner is not there yet because three of his games are missing and the standings is not edited.

  Sally Simpson: It looks like Vincent Keymer was not on the electronic boards for three games.

Rd1. White v Thomas Maedler (2087) 1-0

Rd2. Black v Philipp Humburg (2204) 0-1

Rd4. Black v Pascal Karsay (2148) 0-1

He was ranked 99th at the start of the event.

  Tabanus: Keymer's 3 missing games still not available?

  whiteshark: <Tabanus: Keymer's 3 missing games still not available?> Megabase 2018 incl. update 44 has only the 6 games that are already in here. (These six games have been cb-annotated here:

Games of rounds 1,2 and 4 are missing...

r1 board 98
Keymer vs Thomas Maedler (494th seeded) | 1:0

r2 board 86
Philipp Humburg (318th seeded) vs Keymer | 0:1

r4 board 67
Pascal Karsay (399th seeded) vs Keymer | 0:1

Keymer was 99th seeded.

My guess is that these lower board games have not been DGT-recorded.

  Tabanus: <whiteshark> Thanks!

Maybe some Karlsruhan will send in the games some day. In the meantime, I'm not sure whether the standings should be edited or not.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Now you can click the Pocal! Note to new management: I'd like to see [<6> games] behind Keymer, etc. for all players.

Two wrong game results were found, slips sent!

Aug-26-18  morfishine: <Tabanus> FWIW: I stand beside you against any and all idiots who dare attack you here at <CG>, I wanted you to know that

best always, morf
