World Othello Championship
The last three days were a bit hectic, but I was taking part of something very cool: The 31st World Othello Championship! It was a bit unexpected of course, but I was one of the two members of the Greek team. The event took place in Greece, in the center of Athens (which was almost obviously the reason a Greek team, which was just put together, could take part).
All in all, a wonderful experience! I came 66th of 68, but it really was my first time playing for real (as in on a board), with players that obviously have been playing a very long time and were very experienced. My goal was really not coming last, which I very much achieved :).
I just hope there will be a next chapter in all of this, and I can do better next year 🙂
Congrats for playing in the 31st WOC. May the next time you get a better position and why not the first one! Three thousand dollars is a big motive, isn’t it?
