So who else got the VIP bag with all the goodies? I have no idea what the black plastic thing is - looks like a frame of some description, but not sure what for. Anyone?
I'll probably make a longer post at some point, but in brief - awesome event again. Tournament went smooth like chocolate from what I saw, with pretty perfect timing on getting the rounds started and so on. Audience area was a great improvement since last year. Hopefully this is one area that can keep improving. Bowen's announcements during finals (on score, position and so on) were great, but I heard some say that if you were sitting more than a few rows back the screens were hard to see (and in some cases players or machines would block view of the monitors). It's almost a victim of it's own success here, with hundreds of people wanting to watch the live finals I think still more could be done, so it will be interesting to see again next year.
It was so much fun I ended up missing ALL the discussion panels, and even missed the VIP party when the finals ran slightly late. Hope someone has video capture of some of those?
