Nice write-up and nice result, Dan!

When i'm participating in a table tennis tournament, it's the waiting in between 2 matches that kills me...for you, it's the lack of pause...not sure what's worse?

Thanks thodekey! :(y) I would say that the two are very different. With a physical thing like table tennis you probably play better once you're warm and have "got your eye in". With Carcassonne it's all in your head, and my head works best when it's had some time to wind down a bit after each game. Otherwise I end up looking like this ---> :o

Is this the best UK champs placing for a CarcC member in this tournament to date?

It matches where I got to in the 2015 competition. But we also have jazbang with us who was UK champion in 2015, although he joined the site after I handed him one of our business cards at the competition so he wasn't technically a member of CarcC when he won it...
Heroically snatching defeat from the jaws of victory since 2018

No, James Cook is a Carcassonne Central member and the UK Champion.
As is the 2016 champion, who's name escapes me!

I've a feeling his name is Andrew Wye Page but I can't remember what his CarcC forum name is.

I think I saw him at the Carcassonne tournament on Friday btw. I assumed he would be taking part in it as well, but I think he might actually just have been leaving at the end of the previous tournament which I believe was for Catan.

I just stumbled upon this thread, and enjoyed reading Dan's write up of the tournament. (I'm the Jack in question that ended up winning.) It's nice to now be a member and to have met some like-minded people.

JackFace, great to have you here. I was the guy playing with you in the last 16. You played well in that game. How is the World Championship? Any recap?
