we need NORMALCY

  Tabanus: <siggemannen> Perhaps they'll do it next time.

18 of the 29 players on the list have all 10 games. Di Berardino has six games and two others 7 games, the rest 8 or 9 games. The missing games are not in chess24.

Jan-18-22  siggemannen: Looks pretty good now. Thanks <chessgames> and <Tabanus>!
