Art Medici had this to say about his experience playing in this novice game:
The District 9 99er's in the evening is very worthwhile for a player such as myself.
The 12 board format is good as it consumes a little less time. The Zoom conference
after the tournament conclusion is also very valuable. I highly recommend it.
District 9 and BBO are hoping to add more games such as a '299er’ and '499er’ in the coming weeks. This is something to look forward to.
