I checked and you are probably missing the appropriate mime type for pgn and iis will not serve the file

Add the extension to the list of mime types and all will fine :D

Well if the game score is right, then I'm sure the result is right.

I very much doubt that Alan would just hang his bishop like that though...

He didn't!

The board had missed 27...Ka7 (and subsequently ...Kb7) which meant it recognised an illegal move and fell over when Alan actually played Kxc6. I've fixed that now - thanks for letting me know.

I beg your pardon, Jack. But I felt today's result to be worthy of a column.

Sadly, a wire appears to have become disconnected which means that only boards 7 and 9 are working in round 5.

I think there is an error on the Challengers link to the females as I think a lot of those players aren't females! It's a really useful link to us to see how our girls are getting on, but not so interested in some of the others that are on the list at the moment :)

I've explained this problem elsewhere.

The flags field is being used for the club, and so any club with a "w" in it loses its w, and the player's sex is changed from male to female in the Swiss Master file.

Not only does this mean that all the clubs with "w"s are devoid of them (which was the problem you (?) identified before), but that the list of female players is incorrect.

Sean is attempting to find a fix for this as I write this. :)

Sorry! I read the other explanation and didn't realise it related to this! All these problems because of women :)
