In last Monday's post Carlsen, TCEC, Karjakin, Korchnoi, I decided to 'keep busy on Mondays with the Korchnoi TMER'. That meant continuing with Korchnoi's Events 1998-99 by adding the two following years. While updating Viktor Korchnoi's Tournament, Match, and Exhibition Record (TMER, 1946-1977), I noticed that I had not ordered events for the years 1998-99 by month, so I added that field as well.
The year 2001 saw two tournaments in Korchnoi's honor:-
- THE WEEK IN CHESS 333 26th March 2001 'Korchnoi at 70 in St.Petersburg'
- THE WEEK IN CHESS 338 30th April 2001 'Kramnik wins the Korchnoi Anniversary Tournament' (Zurich)
Both TWIC stories were signed Mark Crowther (of course!).
