Z-base snapshot v01 (1851-1873)

Link to PGN: Z-base v-01

This is the lastest snapshot, hopefully incorporating most of <Retireborn>’s suggestions from last time. At some point I should explicitly address a couple of the points he raised, one in particular I adopted but haven’t firmly commited to (i.e. the EventDate of a playoff/tiebreak held at the same location/session of a tournament).

I also realize I need to become more organized even for such a small number of tournaments. Using SCID by itself is insufficient. At the moment, the number of tournaments can be viewed as 14 (plus all the playoffs, etc.). The total number of games is just about 1000, with 113 players. I won’t brother to break down the actual games vs stubs at the moment.

Here is the link to the PGN again: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4CTS_ohHuAoSWdsQ1lkMmJjN0E

And here is the breakdown of tournaments involved:
