Iīm glad you and many others liked the tournament in
which you can meet real people - as Iīve read in other messages.
No internet event can beat that.
It was a pleasure thanks to the friendly atmosphere.

On the final day public transport came to a halt due to a
severe storm and people were advised not to travel at all,
so you had the opportunity to enjoy our country for another day.

I see at least 10 formidable chess engines listed
and volhouder Bart Goldhoorn (GoldBar-C) is slowly getting there.
Hang on Bart! Anything could have happened among these 10.
Just look at Deep Sjeng and The Baronīs games against the top-3.
The King was my favourite after a few rounds. Johan has had a lot
of bad luck in the past few years and it could have turned into
a tournament win easily. There is always an element of chance,
which keeps it exciting.

See you next time.
