Dean Mitrovich

How has your life changed since you won one of the major prizes in the MCO?: 
My friends and family have finally realized that all the time put into chess wasn't a wasted effort.
How do your friends and family feel about you winning?: 
They are happy and will support me for future tournaments.
Why did you decide to play in MC#1?: 
The prizes were very enticing and my coach suggested it is time to test my game against a real field.
What did you most like about MC#1?: 
I liked the location and the faster time limits.
What would you like to see different next year?: 
For the final 4 i would prefer a 15 min 2 sec round robin format to avoid the luck of the draw.
Will you attend MC#2 again next year?: 
I will try but it all depends on my work and family obligations.
