Some Past Players' Comments

 
It was an excellent event. Could all players be reminded (with a sign too) not to talk loudly just outside the playing area but to go into the analysis room to discuss their games? It's easy to forget!

I enjoyed being able to see the next round draw on the internet as soon as it was completed. Please keep this available. Improve the weather 😉
2018 Open
 
The whole Congress was excellent and very enjoyable. I would be very much less likely to enter if there were three games on the Saturday rather than as it is now.
