No live feed at all because of the Great Firewall of China. 32 tables recorded, 16 of which for later upload (at least that's the plan for now). On top of that - 32 BBO vugraphs being done each day.

Two more things are not yet mentioned:
- decrease in TD calls when the complaining party know that their complaint is not a strong one but they believe that they can convince the TD and it'll be difficult to disprove by the opponents (now they know that reviewing the recording will expose the “not-entirely-true” story)
- players have one less conflict between them - suddenly they don't have to convince the TD as they know that the camera won't lie and it's irrelevant whether the opponent will agree with their facts or not.

I think it improves the overall atmosphere.

@Poland
The statue of limitation is in our disciplinary code, no evil foreign power involved. We've actually changed it to be significantly longer a year ago.

Roughly $200k annually in Poland (it increases slowly each year) which is almost 1/3 of our budget. This is on the National level. The funds are mostly for participation in international events.

On top of that, each of 16 districts is subsidised individually. The grand total is probably somewhere between $350-500k annually.

This is before we start analysing whether not being part of the olimpic movement would be actually legal for the Polish Bridge Union, not to mention that we might be forced to allow WADA and CAS rullings anyway.

PS
I'm just providing the data, I have no intention participating in the discussion, taking sides or anything of this nature.

Well, I think that ACBL has better tournaments than Starbucks has coffee and if we were to follow their model you'd have a free membership but the entry fee would be twice as much.
So no, it does not compare. I just wanted to point out that no one would complain if it wan't for the name.

How about raising the fees and give a discount for the frequent customers, that's what Starbucks does. Oh wait, it's essentially the same thing but in nicer words.

I've been doing all of the YouTube videos from NABCs, some of which happened to be live. It depends on our internet connectivity, available hardware and several other factors. We're planning on doing live video starting from semi-finals (possibly starting with 2nd quarter). You'll find them here:

Yes. It'll be available as a youtube video (same link). You'll also be able to join in the middle, rewind to the beginning and watch with a delay.

As I said, the expressed opinion was surprising.

The AC worked quite well, believe me - I've been there few days before and we had to left the tent at some point as it was impossible to stay in it.

I'm rather confident that the additional cost of around 100k is what was expected back then. Is it surprising in any way to you?

Tiny little bit on my Facebook:

The most interesting thing that I heard was that air-conditioning of the Playing Tent in Montecatini was 106 000 EUR and besides the additional costs it was one of the best organised european championships, especially for the players.
