Still thinking? Read part 3 of a report from Chris Bak (England).


I attended the closing ceremony on the same day and received first place in the under 2000 category! Not only was I handed an envelope, but a ceremonial rose. I wasn’t sure what to do with the flower; it certainly doesn’t belong in a suitcase!

I decided to gift it to the owners of the my accommodation, who went above and beyond to make my stay as pleasant as possible. If I’ve persuaded anybody to play in this tournament, I strongly recommend that you stay at the Centric Guesthouse.
