Slowly, but steadily, GwentSlam has turned into an event which the Gwent community looks forward to each month. The casual, laid-back atmosphere created by the lovely duo of hosts and tourney organizers, Lifecoach and his wife Mirijam, make it most certainly a unique tournament - a nice change of pace from the intensity and stressful competition of the other tournaments, as the falls are softened by the delicious catering and legendary ball pit. Come December 2nd, both players and viewers alike will have an opportunity to enjoy few rounds of Gwent, Austrian-style.
