Carlsen TMER 2008-2012

After creating the index to Magnus Carlsen's games, as described in Carlsen TMER TWIC Refs, the next step was to add his results. I did this for the years 2008-2012, then uploaded the index to Magnus Carlsen's Tournament, Match, and Exhibition Record (2000-). As usual, there are gaps that need more detailed research, but I'll get to those in due time.

One complication that I hadn't encountered before are events that use the 3/1/0 scoring system (three points for a win, one for a draw). The first chronologically was the 2008 Grand Slam Final, after which I identified seven other events. I'm not even sure what the system is called. TBD...

(TMER = Tournament, Match, and Exhibition Record)
