Wow I am surprised lighty could remember all of that about each of his games?  I guess that is what makes him so dangerous!  Congrats to all, sounds like it was a great event.

Yes, it is amazing that you remember the details of 4 games followed without error.  
How much time between game and game?  
Did you take notes after each game to your control and make the chronic post-tournament?

Yes it is amazing and he didn't even write down moved pieces! Imagine that! Then again, you followed a captain of mine for well over 500 moves, even though it was first identified early in the game when it was fairly insignificant. Hell, I'd say that you have the best memory banks this side of a robot, if I didn't suspect it to be "fishy". After being told that you are a computer wiz, I'm going to run with "fishy".  
Back to the subject at hand, the only reason Lighty did not retain his title was the luck factor, which worked against him. While he deserved all of his wins, his losses were due to lucky, reckless play on his opponent's part. Such is the nature of the game.

I think One of the English Stratego players could better that. Wink
As well as playing Stratego, he also is the 2 times Memory World Champion and holds several World records for memory related stuff.
 
Shame is Stratego play isn't that high though. lol
 
Last Stratego tournament he played he finished near the bottom....... but I am sure he could remember any seen pieces perfectly with ease.

Sadi, when I want to talk to you, I will tell you; while, you do not join others talks to defame.  
 
Clearly you not accept defeat, it's your problem. On the board, you do not do evil, but your statements suggest the kind of person you are.  
 
I will not waste my time with people like you, who is always insulting others (the forum and chat is full of your trash). You must be a pretty ugly and pathetic type, with complex, unfortunate, who finds a insults through internet a false escape for his ego rotten. Take care sweetie.

Lighty,
 
Great posts, I enjoyed reading the accounts a lot.  You should be a commentator when the sport hits TV...lol
 
Well done on the third place and goodluck for next year.

Judging by the ratings, looks like UG was in this one with a bunch of noobs.  Cheesy  Wink

Not at all chip.
 
Some very good players in that list.
 
Also I would expect I had probably played the least amount of real life tournament games within that entire list of players. I had only played 30 games before that weekend. Luckily enough I had some internet playing experience to help me out. Smiley

Just as in 2008, somebody made a little movie about the WC.
