Due to a bug in version 6.3 of the wargameroom TS program, the match between John and Karl was played without optionals and without extra influence for US. In the meantime version 6.4 appeared, which probably means that the author was notified already of this mistake. John and Karl announced that they will replay their match. Bruce Wigdor, author of the program, confirmed that version 6.4 is bug free. By the way, maybe this is a good moment to ask all ETSL participants to donate some money to wargameroom.com for the amazing work Bruce is doing for us!
