    Well you had a much harder round 1 than me, John. It's no shame at all to go 1-1 vs mario!

    And yeah, it hasn't really shown up in my results because my opponents haven't fully capitalized, but I definitely have noticed myself making mistakes that players like you could take advantage of -- maybe a bit of a hangover from the previous tournament. Also I'm currently in a ladder game vs REMO where I'm pretty sure he outplayed the shit out of me early, but I think I'm recovering in the mid-game

    Trying to renew my focus a bit, and hopefully we'll meet in the finals

    Welp, Mario kicked my ass in the final round. I tried some stuff that definitely didn't work out. Well deserved win though, he played great and was the one to knock out shimgar

    I appreciate the kind words, jackpot. It felt pretty bad to come up 1 game short after such a long tournament, but that helps, thanks!

    Sorry I'm a little late on this. Congrats on coming in 2nd blanko! You played great!

    1500 points paid to post #45 for winning the Prediction Points with 16, and for most wins with 15! Well done!

    I'm not sure when I'm going to organize the next Tournament. I'm about to renew my SBRPro status and I'm going to be low on points afterward... lol.

    Thanks John!

    And I'll take myself out of the running for points from now on if that helps at all. I'm pretty much a Hexversi vet at this point, I don't really want to take any more points that other players could have a shot at. I just play the tournaments because it's fun competition

    You've also been super generous with points to begin with, nobody will revolt if you scale it back a bit

    Thanks a bunch man! You've become an AWESOME player, especially in the last year or so.

    Another Open Fast starts on August 8th, but I've got some things going on so I might wait until the next Open Fast which should start on August 22nd. If you guys don't mind waiting, or else I can do the August 8th tourney. Let me know!

    Thanks John for all you have done and continue to do! You have been very Generous with your time and points.
    Not to mention the knowledge you have passed along that most would not do.
    When ever is best for you on the upcoming tournament is good for me.
    I'm sure all the regulars feel the same way.

    Thanks again Friend

    What about Blankco last couple of tournaments, he has been kicking butt!

    Same as jackpot, whatever's good for you works for me. I'm perfectly fine with the 22nd if that fits your schedule better

    Hey guys, the next Open Fast starts on Tuesday, Sept 12th. I've got too much stuff going on right now to organize a tournament(or play in it for that matter). Sorry about that.

    Yeah, I even tried the Sept 12th tournament but it didn't get the minimum of 10 to sign up. Turns out John was the only one keeping these tournaments going!

    lol... I mostly sent out a stock message to everyone in the Hexversi Ladder, and other players that have played in past tournaments, letting them know I was organizing a tournament.

    I may not organize another one for a while because I think I'm going to be pretty busy for at least the next few months. However, if you guys are interested in playing in one, I recommend sending out a cut and pasted message. You should be able to get plenty of players.

    Thanks for the idea. I certainly don't have the same level of clout as you, but I may give recruitment a try. Gotta scratch that competitive itch. I think I'm on good or decent terms with most of the ladder players.

    And it might help if I say it's happening with Holden's blessing, haha
