Korchnoi's Events 2006-07 (and TCEC 2016)

I added two more years to Korchnoi's Events 2004-05, and loaded the result into Viktor Korchnoi's Tournament, Match, and Exhibition Record (1946-2007). Even though Korchnoi turned 75 years old in 2006, there are more of his games on file for that year than in any year after 1997.

In June 2007, Korchnoi played in the National Open at Las Vegas. There are several eyewitness records of his participation in this tournament; see, for example, Strange Coincidence - Nine Years in the making - Korchnoi and Ali (June 2016).


As for the TCEC engine tournament, last reported four weeks ago in Carlsen, TCEC, Karjakin, Korchnoi, the most recent post on facebook.com/tcec.chess, October 30 at 9:13am, informs,

After two preliminary rounds, qualifications, candidates stage and a rapid, it is time for the TCEC Season 9 Superfinal. The Superfinal is scheduled to start in the period 5-7 November 2016. [...]

I'll check back on this in a week.
