A quick thank you to Derek Lande who emailed the break into the site. He has quickly delivered a number of break announcements and final results from various championships over the years and I owe him a few drinks next time I see him.

  3. Congrats to all!

    Out of curiosity, with Leiden A breaking twice, will they just compete in the main break and will the ESL team which came 17th bee bumped up?

  4. Leiden can compete in both the main competition and the ESL if they wish. There is always a bitter argument around the whole concept of what level do you have to be at to be still considered ESL. I'm sure Leiden would argue that they are genuinely at a disadvantage debating in English and still have managed to achieve great things while the ESL team in 17th might argue otherwise. There is no easy solution.
