Yes, there's a mistake. I checked the hand-written paper and the game Leo-Rodolfo was 5-4. I suppose Leo put it in the computer because he likes joking :lol:

Great job, Rodolfo, hopefully, that'll be the first of many Spain Championships.

Congratulations to Oliver and to all of you.

After one very busy week, here goes my report:

In the beginning this was going to be a small and pretty much private training session, for David and me to get to know Samu and Fran, the new Málaga players. But the KOA still sometimes provides good surprises, and in the end we had a real spanish national championship, with 5 spaniard and 3 german players.

On friday morning all who came by plane arrived to Jerez, and the first one was Oliver. We had breakfast together, and then took a walk downtown. The other germans, Cornelius and Frank, arrived in the early afternoon, and also did Leo and Jaume, so we all had lunch together and after that there was a little sightseing.

Around seven we begun setting some amigas at the venue, my office, and we could play friendlies almost until ten. That was the only time when David could get to be with the others, as he unfortunately had a job conference on saturday far away from Jerez, so sadly he missed the tournament. After friendlies we had some tapas at a near restaurant, and everyone went to bed.

On the big day we had prepared friendlies until lunch, and after that, the official games. That was because the Málaga players would arrive that morning, and since they were completely new to the dangerous external ko2 world, it seemed logical that they could get some practice matches before the real ones.

We had 4 stations for 8 players (I had 2, Samu brought 1, Leo brought 1), which was just perfect for non stop playing. But one of the machines was not a real amiga, but an emulator brought to Jerez by Leo. Those of you on fb may have already seen it: a little black box, the size of a walkman. The emulation was simply perfect; none of us could have noticed the slightest difference with a real amiga. We connected a normal cheap usb keyboard and a normal pc monitor, and it was marvellous. This is the future.

There was no doubt a favourite player to win the tournament, my dear Oliver, and he certainly did not dissapoint. Only Frank could have offered some resistance, but unluckily they had to play together in the very first match. Oliver had a clear victory, and after that there was not much neither Frank nor anyone else could do. In the end, Oliver received the trophy with a perfect 14 victories out of 14 games, so we could only applaud, and I hope that it was not too boring for him.

The new players, Samu and Fran, although finished in the last two positions, did not perform bad at all, and they just showed the lack of experience we all had at our first KOA competition. They can score, and if they keep on coming to tournaments I am very sure that they will improve. Above all, I hope that this gathering encourages them to come to the World Cup.

As for my personal performance, I was aiming for the third place, after the two german monsters, and to achieve the best position among spaniards. Unfortunately that was not the case, although it was really close in the end. I could speak of some unexpected defeats, but to be honest I also had some unexpected last second victory, so I guess that my fourth place is fully deserved.

The best among the spaniards was Leo Astorri. Be careful if you face him in the future. He enjoyed very much his achievement as best among the spaniards (sorry I did not prepare any trophy for you), and I am very sure that this will give him a boost to come to the WC, so this is good news for all. On the other hand, bad news: he is a filthy lobber :D

Our Málaga new friends left after the tournament, and the rest of us had dinner together, walked to the hotel and said goodbye to all, except for Oliver, who would spend another day here. We went to some of my favourite beaches, which I hope he liked, and then we watched the Real Madrid game at David's house.

Thanks to all of you who came here! I never thought this kind of event would be possible, and had it been at some other place in Spain I am not very sure I could have make it there, so really, it was a pleasure to have you all here. Thanks specially to Leo, Jaume, Samu and Fran, who provided necessary extra hardware.

To summarize, some lessons I learned:

1- Emulation machines are the future
2- Jerez is not so bad connected with the rest of the world
3- Let's make it again!

See you all in the World Cup.

Great report! Exactly what the KOA needs - another lobber! :) Congrats to Oliver! To the new guys I can say: I was able to beat Oliver once, in his first tournament. Now I'd lose by double digits. I'm sure you learned a lot and will improve rapidly if you play more.

That Leon is a filthy lobber was established as a fact during the last Milan World Cup.
