Looks like the games should end after another year from now. The bookies are no longer taking bets for an Italian solo.

Congrats to bitwise for a very impressive Italian solo, and a great overall tournament. A well-deserved win. :)

AARs here.

Thanks MR. Fantastic high quality game, which I greatly enjoyed no matter the result.

My AAR will be written eventually, but it may take some time to catch up with 20 hectic years of messages. I really look forward to reading all the AARs.

Can't say enough about bitwise and the tournament victory. To win with an Italian solo says it all.

My biggest shock was realising that I only identified one of the other players correctly - and that was because he was a replacement during the game!!!

Had tried to keep a diary during the game as an AAR - needs a bit of finishing but I will post it shortly. For now, I'll just say that it was far and away the most intriguing game that I have played on the site. A fitting final table and well played all.
