  Tabanus: First!

Three wrong game results and one duplicate game (fixed), not bad. No. 11 Pål Røyset (rated 2208) from my town made a 2356 perf., not bad either.

Jan-08-18  diagonal: Thanks, <Tabanus> as usual for your keen eyes on details!

Congrats to GM Sengupta from India, this is now his third win or co-win at Hastings Congress.
