Were there more tables at the event? Given that the boards played at table 1
was #1-8 - how many and which boards were played at each of the other
tables?
>From your description so far I guess that all boards were stationary at the
(same) tables through all the rounds and that the contestants all moved from
table to table at each shift of round?
