Top 16 Feature Match: Nick Anderson vs. Steven Harris

May 16th, 2010

This is the first Infernity mirror match we’ve had as a feature! Both of these Duelists are playing Infernities, so not only is it anybody’s game, but each Duel could end on any given turn! Read more…

Top 16 Feature Match: Robert Russo vs. Agustin Herrera

May 16th, 2010

Robert Russo is running X-Sabers and facing off against Agustin Herrera’s Synchro Cat Deck. A win here will bring one of these Duelists into the Top 8, one step closer to winning the 3 new prize cards. Read more…

Top 32 Feature Match: Danny Bassous vs. Russell LaParre

May 16th, 2010

Russell LaParre made it to the Top 32 with his Fairy Deck based around Herald of Perfection. His opponent, Danny Bassous, is playing Gladiator Beasts. This is a tough matchup for LaParre. A single Gladiator Beast War Chariot can completely shut him down, and the Thunder King Rai-Oh in Bassous’s Main Deck makes things even more difficult for LaParre. LaParre calls this his worst matchup – will he be able to overcome it? Read more…

Top 32 Feature Match: Jason Hoang vs. Mario Matheu

May 16th, 2010

Froggy Monarchs have done well both here, and at the SHONEN JUMP Championship in New Jersey, but Jason Hoang is playing the first Froggy Quickdraw Deck we’ve seen. He’s playing Ronintoaden from The Shining Darkness in his Main Deck, rounding out a creative strategy. Hoang finished the Swiss Rounds with an 8-2 record.

His opponent is former SHONEN JUMP Champion Mario Matheu. Matheu is 1 of the many X-Saber Duelists here in the Top 32, and he went 9-1 in the Swiss Rounds. He’s playing Compulsory Evacuation Device, creating some awesome combos that we’ll hopefully get to see in this Match. Read more…

Round 10 Feature Match: Joseph Parchman vs. George Velasquez

May 16th, 2010

George Velasquez is one of the Quickdraw Duelists at the top tables in this tournament. With Main Decked copies of D.D. Crow and plenty of Books of Moon, Velasquez has built his Deck to beat Infernities. So far, it seems to be working!

And that might be rough news for Joseph Parchman! Parchman is 8-1 here today with Infernities, and might have one of the better builds in the tournament. Raigeki Break seemed like a top choice for many Infernity Duelists headed into this event, but few actually seemed to run it when the time came. Parchman chose to include it in his Deck, destroying opposing cards that might stop his combo while thinning his hand. Will it be enough here? We were about to find out. Read more…

Round 10 Feature Match: Devin Djuricin vs. Andrew Fredella

May 16th, 2010

Going into Round 10, Devin Djuricin is undefeated with a 9-0 record. Andrew Fredella, however, is 8-1 and needs to win here to be guaranteed a spot in the Top 32. Djuricin is running a Frog Monarch Deck, while his opponent, Andrew Fredella, is running X-Sabers. Read more…

Round 9 Feature Match: Robert Ackerman Versus Mark Alan Johnson

May 16th, 2010

We have 2 more Rounds of Swiss competition this morning before we cut to the Top 32, and we’re starting our morning off with a Match that pits Infernities against Synchro Cat! While Mark Alan Johnson is piloting the OTK Deck of old, Robert Ackerman is running the most feared and unpredictable Deck of the weekend: Infernities. Ackerman has the best record of the North Eastern group of SHONEN JUMP Championship veterans piloting the Deck we Profiled yesterday. Since both competitors here had 7-1 records, the winner of this match would have a strong shot to make Top 32. Read more…

Round 9 Feature Match: Mohammad Zaiem Ahmad vs. Chase Simpson

May 16th, 2010

Both Duelists in this Feature Match have 7-1 records. The winner here will have a great shot at making it into the Top 32, while the other Duelist will still need good tie-breakers and another victory next round to make it into the Top 32. Mohammad Zaiem Ahmad is running an X-Saber Deck, strongly boosted by the recent release of The Shining Darkness. His opponent, Chase Simpson, is running a Gladiator Beast Deck that includes Elemental Hero Prisma and Thunder King Rai-Oh. Thunder King Rai-Oh’s ability to stop Ahmad from searching his Deck with XX-Saber Darksoul’s effect may make this a favorable matchup for Simpson. Read more…

Round 8 Feature Match: Dylan DeBole vs. Clay Denneny

May 15th, 2010

Clay Denneny is 14 years old and came here from Charlotte, NC with his X-Saber Deck. His opponent, Dylan DeBole is from Rochester, NY and running Machina Gadgets. Since both Duelists in this Match are currently 6-1 they’ll both be trying their hardest to win this Match and boost their chances of a Top 32 finish. Read more…

Round 7 Feature Match: Jeffrey Daniels vs. David Viera

May 15th, 2010

David Viera appears to be the only Duelist at the top tables playing Zombies. With so many of the top Decks in this tournament depending on their Graveyards, Viera runs multiple copies of Book of Life to Summon his own monsters and remove key cards from his opponents’ Graveyards.

Jeffrey Daniels is competing in his second Feature Match today, and is looking for another win! We already saw Daniels defeat X-Sabers earlier this afternoon – could he take on Zombies, too? We were about to find out. Read more…
