Tunis Interzonal (1985) – Finding the games on CG

Several preliminary steps need to be done. First a correct Swiss xtab must be obtained to be used as input data for the program. Hence, I downloaded the usually trustworthy <Carolus> version of the tournament:

http://cid-ea385817c877cd86.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/chess%20history/World%20Championship/1985-1987/1985%20Interzonal%20Tournament%20-%20Tunis.zip

Originally, the tournament had 18 participants but Slim Bouaziz withdrew after six rounds, and his results were nullified since he didn’t complete at least half of the schedule (see end of post for listing).

There is one problem with the Carolus data set, the game is mis-assigned as R17. This must be corrected to get the correct Swiss xtab. Furthermore, to match names the names Jussupow and De Firmian were edited to be Yusupov and DeFirmian. Here is the corrected Swiss xtab:

(Beware – both the title and nationality listed in the above are the contemporary values, not those at the time of the tournament. This is unlike the rating, which SCID does correct to reflect the contemporaneous value in 1985. It is acknowledged, that if possible, the xtab show be corrected for nationality/title as well).

This is then fed as input into my CG-tour python program, which go round-by-round, pair-by-pair to find games on .  It runs in two phases, first matching the names (which is speeded up by the previous hand-edits described above), then doing a round-by-round report.

I won’t belabor the explanation further – the following log should be fairly self-explanatory:

The output of the program is a HTML page which can be used to manually select the games. Each round is broken out, where single games are listed with the header information (similar to ) and a button to add the game to a collection.

The pairings at the end of each round report, shown with angled-brackets in purple, show the pairings found on <CG>. Note that the color of the pair is listed in the Swiss xtab, and was used to look up pairings on <CG>. I tried to show all the pairings with multiple hits, or zero hits (there weren’t any) in a different color to draw attention.

One side note to finish – a technical detail, i.e. the cid used in the HTML is 999999. Anybody can use the HTML to build their own collection, but they must globally edit the HTML and change 999999 to the cid of their collection.

With that cavaet, the interested can download the HTML collection-building page here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1BaL0sF9SCvm2cGOs6V22a0shHzavD2rrFr3N83aHr2w&authuser=0

Store it as a local file on your computer, edit the cid, then load it into your favorite browser, and select the games you wish to add to your collection (sorted by round if you just go down the HTML page).
