   May-17-21 European Championship (Women) (2002)
Tabanus: The missing classical game (rejected by CG): [Event "European Championship (Women)"] [Site "Varna BUL"] [Date "2002.06.03"] [Round "7"] [White "Sarakauskiene, Zivile"] [Black "Ciuksyte, Dagne"] [Result "1/2-1/2"] [WhiteElo "2105"] [BlackElo "2340"] 1.d4 d5
   May-16-21 chessforum (replies)
Tabanus: Quantity vs Quality 1-0.
   May-16-21 Biographer Bistro (replies)
Tabanus: So why did I vote it in? Because I did not read and check anything before voting, like the rest of you. Goodbye for now, Bistro.
   May-13-21 E Danielian vs E Zaiatz, 2005
Tabanus: Armageddon game, draw sufficed.
   May-13-21 stevemcd87 chessforum
Tabanus: Heey Stefanova was 3rd not Turova :)
   May-13-21 Peter Biyiasas
Tabanus: He was ranked about 150 in the world in 1981. Around 150 today we find e. g. Short, Kravtsiv and Ganguly with 2625.
   May-06-21 World Championship Candidates (2020/21) (replies)
Tabanus: "[his games] weren't always most exciting in terms of new ideas" <BUT> "he scores very highly both in terms of opening ideas, general ideas about the game" ! Meaning this boring player scores highly on influence ;)
   May-02-21 New In Chess Classic (2021) (replies)
Tabanus: Fixed. And KO games added.
   Apr-25-21 European Championship (2018)
Tabanus: No anomaly I think.. Just so many GMs. For example Dubov (2701) ended 57th with 6.5/11, and Kuzubov (2689) was 132nd with 5.5/11.
   Apr-23-21 D Gorodetzky vs Kogan, 2015
Tabanus: Way to go Gorodetzky.
