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.

 

Did Kees de Vos's shuffling not entirely confuse you?

I remember last year I found his marsh, gen and two majors and I lost track of all of them. Kees is the fastest live shuffler I have ever seen. I some how managed to beat him but not until I had to trap his last airplane with my four remaining pieces. 

When I told Morx, he said "it usually takes five pieces to trap a scout"...yes....usually ;)

Hello everyone

 

It was my first tournament, and I must admit that I was quite scared to fight against all these legendary players, but it was a very intense and enjoying experience, can't believe I have to wait around 1 year to play in a live tournament again. 

 

You are a great community, long life to Stratego !

The game was played on board 3, and looking back at the rounds' results, that was either in R6 or in R9. So it was either you, or Alex Bergman.

we have video of arrival at Naarden Arsenaal and of awards ceremony. Is it allowed to post them or are there any legal constraints?

@Napoleon 1er: we were very happy to see you and your son attend and enjoy the tournament☺

I said this few times already but it is so nice if players take the effort to travel and spend the time to meet the community.

Postings of ceremony etc are fine. Also pictures of games taken from the side just make sure there are no visible setups.

That is a great picture indeed.

What really made me smile yesterday was when I saw two of the first time live players start up another classic game after playing 10 rounds of the main event, 10 rounds in the barrage event and 5 in the Naarden Open. That is love for the game ☺

I have a picture of this which I will upload later today along with some others.
