On October 3rd in Prague there will be once again a Dvonn World Championship. At this moment already 3 LittleGolem top players registered. It would be nice if there would be more coming!
Come to Prague on the 3rd and stay there for a week - Problem solved ;-)
Gotta find some sofas…
I don't need sofas in the uk, I need sofas in Czechia, you silly man! And ones where “wccanard said I could kip here for the night” won't get me a free night's accomodation in the local cop shop.
I am thinking to go.. the travel reimbursement makes up for just about everything;) Now I really need to practice the other five (skills even poorer than Dvonn)..
Does anyone know what the registration fees are? I couldn't find it anywhere on the MSO website and Kris hasn't been able to tell me either.
As far as I understood, there will be no registration fee for the Gipf games. Some games do have a registration fee, but for those, it is specifically mentioned.
I will be there from Friday morning (my plane will arrive at about 8.30) until Sunday at the end of the day. I will be playing Dvonn and Tzaar. Maybe Yinsh and Gipf as well, still thinking about that.
Thanks, I did figure that out eventually, from the registration 'receipt' ;)
Looking forward to it. It seems like quite a few online celebrities are making their way there.
The online players I know I spotted in the participants list are:
Whom am I missing ?
For those interested, the medals at the Dvonn World Championship were all taken by LittleGolem players:
1. Xander Nijhuis
2. Matthijs Booden
3. Allen Mertner
We had a nice number of participants: 26 (if I remember well).
For the other 5 Gipf games, there were typically 20-30 players participating.
Since I left Prague before the last event (Yinsh) was played, I do not know who won the overall championship. Matthijs Booden was in the lead after 5 tournaments.
Thanks for sharing the result - well played!
Congratulations guys! Well done. You've made the LG community proud!
I don't play dvonn yet but congratulations !
Looking around that web page, it appears that Mathijs was indeed the overall champion!
Yes I had that honour:)
Xander's win on Dvonn was well-deserved though. Congrats to him and all LG denizens who participated with such success!
Congratulations too all that went and played! Too bad this event was at the same time as the Dutch Othello Championships which I just couldn't skip. (www.othello.nl for results)
