London (1899) – stubified


(A poor man’s first look…)

PGN link: zbase – London (1899).pgn

Tournament Book: The Book of the London International Chess Congress 1899

EDO page: http://www.edochess.ca/tournaments/t654.html

CG page: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chess.pl?tid=79246


London (1899) has a fairly good treatment on <CG>, and I’ve used the PGN from there as a base. That means no checking for move errors, or any other in-depth treatment.

The idea is simple – I want to reproduce the tournament book’s crosstable (aka tb xtab). Doing so is a little tricky – first of all, only 15 players started the tournament, as Burns  unexpectedly withdrew before play began. Secondly, Teichmann was forced to withdraw from the tournament after playing only four games.

That means this was a double-bye tournament for very many rounds. In fact, it’s even a little more complicated, as it was a RR2 (double round robin). It was therefore deemed that all of Teichmann’s first cycle unplayed games were forfeits, and all of this second cycle games were nonscores.

That means, in order to reproduce the following xtab, some of the stubs are scoring, and others aren’t.

Here’s the xtab from the tb:

 

And after a little more monkeying around than I’d care to admit, here’s SCID’s versions:
