09-26/07:25 Hagbard: (Holmgarthr: Potapych moves on.)

09-25/18:43 Hagbard: (First Round 2 game finished: Hagbard / Cacreal.
One minute later: Draganov / Cacreal.)

09-25/17:17 Draganov: Regarding the elimination of Alex, I think it proves how close in strenght are the top players. I think there are at least 5 players who can beat anyone.

09-24/22:55 Hagbard: (Altta: Jrton80 moves on.
Brave-frog exits.
Altta Round 1 finished.)

09-24/22:12 Hagbard: - and if we do the Beat The Winners like last year, he'll have the chance to do just that; AlHn was #1 in the BTW last year.

09-24/22:01 Hagbard: True, unfortunate to miss Alex Hnefatafl in the Hist.Hnef. Round 2.
However, the top half of players have a very big chance of moving on, since they only have to win a single game out of four.

09-24/21:55 Hagbard: @Docbullen, please beware; games are about to time out.

09-24/21:51 Hagbard: (Vinland: Gingie339 exits.
Sauron exits.)

09-24/21:42 Dimetr: Hagbard,
Maybe it will be better to make randomly start setup list (regardless of player rating), for the World Champ, next year?
Now, it's not good, that strong players  fight against each other, right in the first round, and take points from each other.
It's very sad, that Alex Hnefatafl exit from the Historical tournament
(and I was one of the reasons for this).
His games are always strong, interesting and unusial, and we can learn how to play Tafl, from his games.
But his tournament position, between  Casshern and me, was too difficult, 
and he left. 
So, we won't be able to see his playing in Lewis Cross 11*11, at this champ, unfortunately.
So, maybe random start setup, will be better - strong players will meet in the final
