Congratulations to Chessandgo on winning with such a dominant performance. Thanks to all the players for your participation. While there were certainly a few rough spots, from my perspective the overall tournament was quite a success. I'll be starting another thread shortly to start discussion on the changes that can be made next year to make it even better.
 
Thanks to all the tournament coordinators, without their time and effort to cover all the games it would be impossible to have such a large and long tournament. They each stepped up and filled in times to monitor games when other coordinators were busy.
 
The audio commentary was uniformly great and added to the enjoyment of the spectators. I think it’s also a great resource for new players. Thanks to every commentator for your time and thoughts. Special thanks to clyring for the extra effort he has put in to get so much commentary done in the first few weeks. This gave many of the new players a commentated game they would not have the opportunity to get otherwise.
 
Thanks to Denny’s for their sponsorship contributing greatly to the very nice prize fund.
 
Finally thanks to Omar for providing all the infrastructure that allows this tournament, game and great community to continue to thrive or even exist at all.
 
I was going to close with hoping to see you all next year. But actually I hope to see you throughout the rest of this year, with various events to keep everyone in shape for next year.

I think you forgot to thank the most key person. Btw, who was the TD this year? Smiley

Watching the NBA playoffs, Denny's got mentioned in yesterday's fourth game. So they are sponsoring Arimaa and the NBA? Smart guys! Smiley
