  Stonehenge: Someone uploaded it from and forgot to add dots after each move number.
Dec-21-20  Z4all: If you used the <pgn4web> viewer the moves show up, as its pgn-parser is more forgiving / experienced.

(Since Olga-1 is unlikely to get retro-fitted for this, one probably has to wait for Olga-2 to handle these uncorrected games. Of course, it would be best for <CG> to store the canonical, corrected, version, but there's likely many such games in the DB.)

Here is the SCID corrected version:

I bet <Tab> or <Missy> could pinpoint the precise date of the simul (would be nice).
