I believe this is:
1. The first tournament Ron King did not win in two or maybe three years,
2. The strongest event this year so far, even stronger then the US nationals

To me it shows:
1. The race for the WCDF Qualifier is still open, now more then ever before.
2. The Qualifier will certainly be the best tournament this year.

I want to congratulate Mustafa, who already won the British Freestyle Open in 2003. Now he won his first major 3 move tournament, ahead of a world-class field, showing that the future of draughts/checkers will be younger and not centered around the Anglophone countries anymore.

Also I sent a special congratulation to Shane McCosker, who "only" finished 3rd at the last Junior World Championship in Prague.  He proved that he indeed is master.  Now you see how good the event in Prague 2005 was on the top of the Junior event, and imagine, he only finished third. How strong would the others have been?

I can't wait for the games and for the games, reports and final standings of the Qualifier that is under way now.

Mustafa is now the new man in the yellow jersey for this event, but with Borghetti, Docherty, Rawle Williams, Jim Morrison, Richard Beckwith and Rawle Allicock in the field it looks mighty hard to win for anybody...

Richard jokingly tried to set up a position to put Ron into a two-for-one before the picture got taken.
