Some really interesting topics there! I wish someone would record them and put them on podcasts or youtube for those who could not go to the convention.

I have yet to ever see one of these, the Borodino one on Friday ( was only there Saturday) would have been a good one for me. Only saw a couple pictures and the GM of game I played was there and said the Russians won.
