The two month battle of 30 high-skilled Freestyle chess players in an all-play-all online event had started on February 4th and finished in the night to April 11th. Anson Williams from England and his team of helpers behind the nickname 'Intagrand' won the title with 29 points a point clear of maximus. Williams is as close as there is to a veteran in such events winning tournaments as far back as 2007 ( article from the Chess Drum about him here).

Arno Nickel has been promoting this form of chess since 2005 and is a correspondence chess Grandmaster.
