CG missing FIDE id’s from Tromso 2014

It would be much easier to just delete all the data uploaded from FIDE’s Tromso 2014 tournament and restart. But since many of the players/games have discussion streams that isn’t practical.

Unfortunately, FIDE original posting of the PGN caught ChessGames (CG) unaware – and so the PGN WhiteID and BlackID tags were ignored. Normally, FIDE uses WhiteFideId and BlackFideId tags. This meant that CG added the first couple of rounds of games without benefit of FIDE id.

This in turn means that CG used heuristics to match the PGN name tags (White and Black) to match players. Some players already in the CG database were missed, and so duplicates were added, with the new Tromso games. These games will need to be merged, and the new player entry deleted.

That leaves ~100 players that were new to CG, and were added without benefit of FIDE id, just using their names. Which means that their biographical data is missing country, birthday, rating and FIDE id, all of which could be filled from data on the player’s FIDE card.

These players are difficult to find, post mortem. How to filter them out from other players in the CG database?

(CG can do this by looking at the chronological stamps of when a new data entry was added, or even by using event/site tags to select players with only one tournament. None of these techniques are available to an outside user such as myself)

After a… well let’s be honest… tremendous amount of work, I finally polished my program enough that this massive task could be done. Let’s just show the data, all of these entries should be updated. Unfortunately, the current CG model heavily relies on doing such corrections by hand. Well, here’s 100 entries that need updating (FIDE card info first, then CG):

I like the programming part, at least it appears so since I just did it. But I’m certainly not intending on submitting 100 correction slips, not at my pay scale –  but my blessings to whoever does!

 

PS – It’s a little curious that some of the entries do have dob and country of origin, but no FIDE ID, e.g. Jn Claude Pierre.
