“This final was played to free challenge, and there were a predictably large number of challenges in every game. We both agreed that it was logical and correct to challenge every word where even a scintilla of doubt existed, and as such Free Challenge was detrimental to the game.”

Didn’t happen at WYSC, as far as I know :).
EDIT: OK just realised Yew Tee was a major… that means its theoretically possible for 10 or more new GMs this year? (would have to include 1 person currently in the 1700s) Then again, I might have missed out other foreign players who don’t have their ratings on Toucanet…
