I just received in email an official final standing cross table from QT referee Graham Young. So - it is final now that M. Borghetti from Italy is an official Challenger in the upcoming 3-moves WCM 2011 and I accept this fact.
Congratulations to all participants and organisers. Ron made one mistake only - he shouldn't play in Irish Open, but it seems like he hardly accept the fact that he is not in his late 20's today
Shane played very well but according Hugh comments - had little luck with openings. I have very small doubts that Shane has very bright future and outstanding checkers career.
I am fantastically happy that Michele became a winner and finally broke Suki monopoly in 3-moves QT. This is really very good news. Unfortunately I should partially agree with Ingo who said that Anglo-American Draughts geographical map has been changed and American & UK players diactation and monopoly somehow is limited now.
I am probably the last old crocodile on another side of barricade What an outcome !!!!!!!!!!
To all my fans - wait and see. There is only one way to prove pudding - eat it !
