For any Dutch players: the flight tickets start around 343 EUR from Amsterdam with 1 stopover, which is actually very affordable.

Hey Fks,

 

Isn't there any possibility during your Chicago open event to organize some computer stations where the players would have possibility to play against top online world class players? I guess when it will be morning for you the European top class players will have afternoon and afternoon for you will be like evening in Europe. I'm sure if you ask for some volunteers in the European top players community who is ready to be available to play you will find some ... first one is myself?

I don't think so. Sorry :/ (I for one am not flying to a different state to play someone online when I can do so from my bedroom.)
