Some Past Players' Comments

 
Wife at home very much appreciated seeing results come up quickly on Swiss-results.
2018 Open
 
The congress was, as always, well organised and well run. It is difficult to think of any improvements that can be made by the organisers.
2018 Foundation
 
I really enjoyed this year's congress as indeed I do every year.
2019 Open
 
Excellent venue anď very well organised. Will certainly be back barring illness and many thanks to the organisers on a first class job
