CG Good WCC matches

There is a special category of tournaments on <CG>, WCC matches, which get a rather nice writeup on <CG> with a slightly altered format.

Of course, WCC matches overlap with non-WCC matches, which overlap with other tournament categories (a match is really a 2-RR-n after all). But it is useful to separate them out as special (even it means that occasional extra errors creep in, like when I made my first CG SCID collection).

However, I think I finally have it right, and have corrected the WCC’s beyond <CG> even. The normalized, corrected, and indexed tournaments can be found here, in PGN form:

Three of the WCC tournaments were found to have R? games, which I’ve corrected via “Round-Dating”. One tournament needed the EventDate for the games updated, and another (<Leko-Kramnik (2004)>) has an apparent contradiction needed additional research. It’s since been corrected.

Here’s the list:

>>> for t in ixWCC:
        print "%6d  %2d   %4s     %s   %s    %s" \
              % ( t, len(TG[t]), maxR(t), 
                  TG[t][0].EventDate, min( [ g.Date for g in TG[t] ] ), TN[t] )
