    Are the numbers underlined? They are the number of moves made in any given game.

    What tourney are you in???

    Each number in the table represents a game - the game between the two people that you can read from the row "header" and the column "header" of the square that number appears in. What exactly the number is tells you the number of moves made in the game so far. Once the game is finished, the number gets replaced by a picture of a pawn - a white pawn if white won, and a black pawn if black won. If there was a draw two pawns, one of each colour will appear.

    You can click on the numbers (or the pawn symbols for finished games) to view the game in question.
