Some Past Players' Comments

I really enjoyed this year's congress as indeed I do every year.
2019 Open
I thought that it was excellent to see charts and scores updated. I wish other events could learn from this.
2018 Intermediate
Wife at home very much appreciated seeing results come up quickly on Swiss-results.
2018 Open
Very good congress. All being well will play again next year.
