Comments

  1. Will there be a better organized tourney next time? .. appreciate its an experiment, but if theres a delay/ problem, players need to be kept informed of whether or not the event is likely to finish… or when.

  2. Congratulations to the winners!
    FYI, team Lukas (4th place) consisted of one 16 year old girl and three 17 year old boys!!!

  3. instead of having 3 rounds of 10 boards, it may be a good idea to have 5 rounds of 6 boards played on a Swiss system to select the top 32 teams.
