Any points scored ‘in advance’ (that is during catch-up night games played for a round that occurs after the catch-up night) will be added to the calculations when the relevant advance round is actually played in the main tournament.

A master database of all scored games of the Championships.

Most games from Rounds 1 to 9 are also accessible via the links in the two tables above.  The games can be viewed either by a simple game-viewer (e.g. click on ‘Rd-1;’, then click on the players’ names) or via the Chessbase game-viewer, in the second table (in which the link for each round includes the games for all divisions).   The Chessbase viewer offers more possibilities: analysis [cog-icon], board flipping, piece choice etc). It should work fine on all devices (please tell Geoff Hyde if any issues).  Depending on the device you are using, how you access the list of games in the division, and other features, will vary.
