I just found the site, game hasn't started yet but will in just a few minutes. I believe that this is a first in Checkers. See the finals played live and chat with other viewers.

Congratulations to Danny Olipant for winning the first Danish Open.
He also won the first two German Open Tournaments.
Lokks like continantal Europe is the best place for him to play.
Which national open does he want to add next to his list?

There r many tournaments in Ireland, England, Schotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

In continental Europe we had some tournaments in the Czech Republic (Qualifier, Czech Open, Czech Championships, Pardubice, and the Central European Mind Sport Olympiad, (though they only had a rapid tournament with reduced time rates last year)), we had two German Open and now a Danish Open in english style.
In most countries in Europe 10*10 is dominant (like in Germany), especially in the Netherlands and the former Soviet Countries.
Many countries also have tournaments in their respective local styles like the Czech Republic, Russia, Italy, Spain, Portugal, etc.
Last year some participants in the Prague Qualifier also played the World Championships in Czech Checkers, and Baghtiyar Duryev even won the title.
So 10*10 is dominant in continental Europe, with local 8*8 styles and a new devolping scene in the eglish style, which still dominates in Great Britain and Ireland.
