It's great to see that the Main Event has started and we all wait in anticipation at who comes out on top. I wish they would go back to the old way and play the full event out now until waiting until November

Judging by the speed all the events unfolded i expect that this one will also be a blitz fast tournament.

I hope that the action will be good Big Smile
