One of the unexpected challenges of international tournaments is that of deciphering the variety of handwriting used by players and staff. Each country has its own way of writing numerals: to start with there are simple questions such as whether a '1' written with a serif on the top and/or on the bottom, vertically or obliquely. One communication issue I've seen more than once here between the paper game recorder and the person doing game data entry is that there is not a lot of difference in Thai handwriting between the capital letters I and P: they both look like a vertical stroke with a small circle in the vicinity of its top.
