The tournament was an over-night tournament, it started on Saturday at 3 o'clock in the afternoon with 128 players and continued to the finals, which started at 9 o'clock in the morning!
Imo the organization was very good, they even had a camera + video wall for the centre court and players could check the tournament roaster at a internet kiosk.

The field was pretty strong, players like Reimering or Tot finished as 17th.

Since it was too late for me to get a place as a player I went there to watch some games.
It was interesting too see that:
- Jumpers are used very often
- Better players use less often a jumper
- Top players make killer safeties
- Many good player use a sledge hammer jumb & break cue
- Large variety of breaking technique styles
- Many other little details....
