I probably missed a few webDip players. Top7 proceed to the final board. Vecna lost it on tiebreakers, so there's only two webDip players there. I believe exactly 100 players played, making this the largest (v)FTF tournament ever!

There are 13 awards in this tournament.

Top3: Undetermined yet

Golden Blade, Player's Choice and Whoopsie-Doodle: Votes are being counted.

(One, or two, best country award could still be overtaken by the final board, but that's historically unlikely)
Best Austria: Maxim Popov (14 centres)
England: Farren Jane (a solo on 19 centres in 1908)
France: Claesar (15 centres)
Germany: Nicolas Sahuguet (Woland on webDip, 17)
Italy: Christophe Borgeat (15)
Russia: Christian Kline / JJ Raymond / Chris Campbell (all board tops at 9)
Turkey: Jaxon Roberts (17)

First time I'd played in a vFTF tournie (or indeed played at all for a couple years :lol: ), highly recommend it for people in future. Game times were a bit rough for a Brit so I only played in two, but they were clearly designed so that someone in any timezone in the world could play at least a game or two. Very well organised all round, too - Especially given just how big some of the rounds were.

No, I had Amby in the list. Ken Gordon is Kaner, right?

And then I presume:

It was a tough night and in the end just the beer saved me.


Also got a chance to play with Hellenic Riot if I'm not wrong!
