  3. opperwezen - the 2nd CWC!

Everyone join me in congratulating @opperwezen for his deserved victory over the inaugural CWC, @jannlee !

Congratulations to opper! Everyone keeps asking me when lichess will give him the CWC trophy. I streamed highlights earlier today and had opper in voice chat for the last half hour. It's on my Twitch and I will post to YouTube tomorrow.

Congratulations to Opperwezen! and to both for a wonderful match.

Gefeliciteerd, @opperwezen! I recall you mentioning that you're playing some bug with @helmsknight soon, do I have that right?

Here is a playlist of 92 video streams from the 2018 Crazyhouse World Championship: www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRyjH8DPuzTCbEV0J2hi4Y0jXpSXqBvh3 Live action covered by the Discord chat, by Flourish & Antic, and the streams of Jann & opper themselves of the final although they both stayed silent.

And the following video is a highlight of some of the best games, with opper joining in chat for the last 40 minutes :

Congratulations to opperwezen as the new champion! He certainly deserves the title this year and maintained an outstanding standard throughout the candidates and the 60 games in the final. It's been an absolute pleasure to play against such talent.

For me, it's been a dream come true to see crazyhouse being recognised by a growing international community, with the foundations for a strong tradition of a championship event now set in motion for future years.

Thank you to everyone for supporting the game by participating, watching, donating and creating content. The last few years of growth have been phenomenal and I look forward to the game's future!

Cheers,
Jann

@JannLee you're a legend mate, and huge thanks to @FischyVishy for doing a Jules Rimet :)

Congratulations Opperwezen, what a run my man!

And also JannLee of course for a great match.
Thanks Jann for all the commenting, very valuable help for a anything-else-but-tactically-savvy player like me.

You guys are both awesome, legendary skill combined with perfect sportsmanship

thx for the kind messages!!
