First Look – look here first


Reichhelm Fifty link

PGN link – Z-base


The project has grown big enough to need an index page. I knew I skipped over many tournaments in a rush to finish the “Fifty”, but didn’t realize how incomplete the treatment was for several periods in the middle. Unfortunate – but that’s life… after all, it’s been mostly a one-man effort thus far.

[Update 2018-02-20 – currently I am trying to provide a basic page for all the tournaments with at least the Z-base versions of the xtabs + a little more. Eventually, a complete “first-look” treatment for each tournament should be done – so check back now and again]
