The weekend began with an onslaught of players quite unexpected in number. They stormed the venue as soon as the doors opened on Friday to sign up for the Grand Trials and to earn byes for Saturday's and Sunday's main events. Overall, four times as many players were slinging cards on Friday than when the MKM Series last visited Prague in November 2016—including a whopping 102 competitors in the Modern Grand Trial. Of them, the following twelve walked away with one bye or, in the case of first-place finisher Sebastian Fauth, two.
