Looking at the top-5, yesterday and today were a very exciting Under-23 event, when will the seniors have their tournament?  ;)

Looking forward to after-battle reports, anecdotes, exciting board positions, blunders, bluffs and all that. And the differences between live and online playing, for the people who made their live debuts!

Very interesting statistics is that all top 7 players are online players and 18 out 23 first are also online players. This is 78%.

Anecdote:
Arriving from Schipol in the hotel, made checkin and then went to dinner. First thing we saw is 2 guys playing stratego in the lobby. So sure there for the WC we went to them and i said "Hello i'm Napoleon" ... then the moved up their heads and said " ...what ... you are Napoleon?" ... just with the tone of the guy who thinks who is this crazy guy ... psychiatric hospital is not here ...
... finally i understood these were no online players and they don't know about nick names... just made a great entry in thi WC. Keep laughing!

Well done John!

 

Do these results indicate that the level of Stratego skill is increasing, especially at the top level? The highest a previous winner obtained was 7th, and most of the other previous winners were far below that?

 

It seems that the results are positive for the future of the game, with all these young people outperforming the rest.

I had an amazing first 5 rounds beating players like Don mitsos, Gpet0. George Franka (very strong dutch player) And a uk player Anthony only having one loss to sam van geffen (hello124).

 

In the game I loss vs Sam van geffen I forgot a colonel I had spotted earlier which later I thought was the piece he pushed up against my unknown gen which I took and end up being marshal. Then I had knocked over one of my own colonels so he gets info for free and was a very quick win for him :)

 

2nd day round 6 I play Ricardo a top 10 player in the world from the Netherlands where I had a decent start vs and even or so game through the middle game untill he started shiffeling for the most part and I completely forgot a known colonel major marshal and everything else he had in that clump and which than led him to get my spy and scout my marshal with a miner I had a chance playing for draw even afterwards but he is good at end game and took the win.

Round 7 I played Johnny van geffen the father of spion and hello124 and he completely destroyed me in the opening not much to say but major in to marsh col in to gen and he was able to force off trades easy win for him :)

round 8 I played Kees de vos I had a 100% win and then I mistakenly forgot gen which led me to lose col and end up losing the game.

Round 9 I played I don't remember name I am sure you could see on the matches posted, either way I had another 100% win and I moved to fast and let a known colonel take my major and wasn't able to pull it back since it was end game already.

Round 10 I played Martin or something like that and was a very simple victory of my general getting colonel and pinning down a major with 2 col advantage and forcing marsh trade off. All in all it was a very fun experience but I am shamed to see most of my losses happened due to my own failures than of my opponents skill. 

It is clear to me that playing online is much easier as you can see the entire board and not forget moved pieces but on live I struggle with remembering things.

 

I am competing in the open tournament tomorrow I hope to do a better showing for myself and NASF. Thanks to the Organization team for a wonderful World championships I hope to come and compete many more times!

What is really annoying in live games, is that the opponent doesn't have to order pieces correctly in the graveyard. So you have to spend a bit more time in the tray to see how many you are in front / behind. Taking your eye off the board for longer times, makes it more likely to forget pieces on the board. Of course, one could practice remembering the graveyard, so there's no free lunch :)

Hi I usually remember what is dead the problem was taking my eyes off the board to put in pieces to graveyard so I guess you are right in a sense but I wasn't really focusing on all of my opponents moves. Ricardo after our game said I wasn't even looking at him shuffling his pieces so he knew I had forgotten it all.
