"This round was a great experience. I have learnt a lot playing with different players, always adapting my game to the different styles. I am really happy with the results because my opponents were great players: they play consistently and smartly. I am just happy that I managed to play powerfully and focused. I had great time! I do believe the league is a great thing because you both improve your game, you have fun and you also meet great people on the way!"
