370 7/29/2019 4:35:00 PM Spring 1916 Moderator Message Congrats on your win, Simon, see you in round 3 in November. Yes, that's a long ways away, but we'll start shortening the rounds once the first two are done.

The good news for Michael is, of course, that he also will be in Round 3 since this is a double elimination event!

Rgds,
Tom
369 7/21/2019 1:11:00 AM Spring 1916 Central Powers Message Thanks for the game Michael.

I found that the games I learnt the most, were the ones which I lost. I played Michael Dauer about 2 years and this one game probably won me several more in the future from seeing how he played.

Was this your first loss in the tournament? You get 2 losses before you are out altogether.
368 7/21/2019 1:04:00 AM Spring 1916 Allies Message Peace in our time!

I'm ok conceding now. I had a lot of fun! I definitely also learned a lot about the mid game. I'll send the relevant email tomorrow.

358 7/20/2019 9:49:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Hi Michael
It isnít quite there yet. I think there are still about 3-4 VPs in the game. But once the spaces in Austria are taken back next turn it will be over.

It is up to you but if you would like concede rather than playing to the bitter end, you are welcome to? I think it will be hard for you to pull it back with verdun and Nancy falling next turn and Paris already occupied. But Iíll let you make the call of this?

I also get 2 RPs each turn for the Germans. I was only claiming 1 as I forgot about the total war bonus RP for occupying sedan and 2 other spaces.
