Even though twenty six games in a day was tiring it was great fun and although the round times were running about half an hour behind schedule I think they coped pretty well with 400+ players albeit it was a bit of a nightmare fighting your way to the pairings every round!
That sounds like a great event, especially with everyone playing in one huge tournament rather than in sections. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but it would be good to have more blitz events. How long was the playing day with 26 games?
