If Missy did, Missy is keeping it a secret.

Sep-22-22  stone free or die: De nada.

FWIW - I think <tga> posted the request a couple of places, and it was <Retireborn> (sorry), not <Missy> who found the game:

Benjamin Finegold (kibitz #100)

Yes, here and on the GM Finegold player page.

On an unrelated note:

@ cg.com

I am probably not the first person in the history of this website to suggest this, but the "Jump to page #" is a handy feature.

It would be nice to apply it to the players individual libraries.

For example, I wanted to look at Karpov's games from 1990, when he was qualifying to play Kasparov for the WCC.

But GM Karpov has played literally 8 million games, so he has 592,000 pages in his library.

By having to fast-forwarding 1 page at a time, I developed carpal-tunnel syndrome plus an enlarged finger muscle (so that gloves no longer fit me).

  MissScarlett: That would be a useful addition, but for the example you cite, why not use the search function from the front page?

  MissScarlett: I'm sure it's been suggested before but a priority should be the creation of templates to automatically generate cross tables for tournaments (whether SRR, DRR or Swiss) and results/progressive scores for matches, thereby greatly facilitating the work of the hapless biographers.
Sep-23-22  stone free or die: <tga> Just use the <Advanced Search> function for <Player: Karpov> and <Year: 1990>, like this

https://www.chessgames.com/perl/che...

Just one page of games (74 in total).

There's a qualifier on the year search (before, after, exactly). I would prefer the ability to select a ranch, but that's not there afaik.

.

Sep-23-22  stone free or die: FWIW- if you really insist on jumping to a particular page one can do so (without risking carpal tunnel) by editing the url.

E.g. this is page 20 of Karpov's games

https://www.chessgames.com/perl/che...

https://www.chessgames.com/perl/chess.pl
?page=20&pid=20719

(The latter is supposed to be on one line, but <CG>, lacking verbatim, hyphenates it

Thanks.

<I would prefer the ability to select a ranch,>

Perhaps the Cattlemen's Association can advise you ;)

Sep-24-22  stone free or die: Ha ha. Most of my slips are pretty boring, but this one had my eyes grazing over!
Sep-24-22  stone free or die: <CG> can't we get the old live game page up and going?

The Carlsen--Erigaisi match would make for some good viewing.

Even if the games have to be hand input (like in times of old?).

OK, just a thought.

  MissScarlett: I discovered the issue - the submitted game ended with <(<dotdotdot>/44) 1-0> indicating White eventually won the game in 44 moves. By trial and error,the <three little dots> turn out to be the stumbling block! As can be seen, the problem is not restricted to submission of games.

  Willber G: <MissScarlett: <three little dots>>

They are called an 'ellipsis'. There is an ASCII character for it but it is often substituted by three periods, wherein might lie the problem.

Shouldn't it be a priority to get the games on site first?

<petemcd85:

<MissScarlett: Can we have the Chess.com Global Championship Knockout 2022?>

If you know a source for me to get the games PGN, I'll put it up.>

  MissScarlett: Thanks. Nice results table there. I should point out that the time control is rapid, not blitz, according to FIDE rules. There are a few armageddon games that need sorting.

<A ‘Rapid chess’ game is one where either all the moves must be completed in a fixed time of more than 10 minutes but less than 60 minutes for each player; or the time allotted plus 60 times any increment is of more than 10 minutes but less than 60 minutes for each player.

A ‘blitz’ game’ is one where all the moves must be completed in a fixed time of 10 minutes or less for each player; or the allotted time plus 60 times any increment is 10 minutes or less.>
