thanks to fergus for a brilliant tournament.

congratulations to antoine, roberto and fergus.

i too had a great time.  i certainly enjoyed some games more than others
and hope to play them many more times - in particular i enjoyed
familiarising myself (to varying degrees) with ultima, pocket mutation,
grand chess, eurasian chess and takeover chess.  games i have to say i
didn't enjoy were cavalier and hexagonal chess, although perhaps both
might seem better if i played them a few more times.

the only unfortunate thing was that a number of my games were decided one
way or the other by whopping blunders.  i guess that is bound to happen
with games we are fairly unfamiliar with.
