The room the event's games were played in was transformed into a viewing room by moving tables to the sides and pushing a lot of chairs towards the middle. We are a few turns into the first game and Robin is getting fed play information from Pat Larash and Kate Boys, who were monitoring the annotators' output from the finals room.
