45 games: +4 =16 -5 *20

Downloading the PGN allows one to recreate the above xtabs (with SCID). All 45 games are included in the PGN, with stub placeholders for unplayed games (thus the “*” results in the tables above).

Here’s some more of the details, both about the PGN and about the tournament (let’s put the tournament info first):

zanzibar: The tournament details are at the bottom of the xtab page, as footnote links:http://www.shamkirchess.az/content/5

* * * * *

The xtab shows the Berger order of the players – which is used for the pairings.

This is useful for me, to generate stubs, but an xtab arranged either by leader, or alphabetically, is more useful for users.

Still, it’s nice to see a live-time xtab.

The above info should probably find it’s way into the tournament intro, as the PDF is likely to go away some day (before this page does anyways).

Farid Huseynove (Chairman) and Faig Gasanov (chief arbiter) deserve mention in the intro, at least.

And about the PGN:

zanzibar: I did an experiment with the Gashimov Memorial.First, I wrote a simple glue routine to take a Berger-sorted player list and automatically generate a stubified tournament.

(OK, you also have to past a lookup table mapping round to date, if you want to be accurate).

This is great – because I can update it in lickity-split fashion as each round comes in, using SCID’s delete twins feature.

The nice thing about having a complete tournament is that the Swiss xtabs lets one see who gets paired against whom for any given round with a simple mouse-over.

As each stub is just placeholder with Result = “*”, the leaderboard is unaffected – one can see the correct points as each round gets filled in.

Additionally, SCID calculates the performance ratings properly (with or without the stubs, of course). This can be a little interesting to see who’s over/under-performing – and how ratings will change.
