As competition heated up in the wake of SHONEN JUMP Championship New Jersey, Jae Kim took on Anthony Alvarado in one of the greatest matches of the Pot of Greed, Graceful Charity, Delinquent Duo era. While Thousand-Eyes Restrict dominated tournaments, Kim bucked the trend by playing Zombies with triple Trap Dustshoot and double Mind Crush in his Side Deck, taking it all the way to the Finals. The first Duel came down to both competitors topdecking, but Alvarado was the first to recover and take the win. The second Duel saw Alvarado activate Pot of Greed, Delinquent Duo, and ride Mobius the Frost Monarch to victory!
