Top 32 Feature Match: Jeff Jones vs. Dale Bellido

May 14th, 2017

The Top 32 is set, and the bracket gave us a huge match right at the get-go. The 2nd seed, multi-time YCS winner Jeff Jones is facing off against another YCS winner, 31st seed and longtime friend Dale Bellido. Dale took some time off from the game but is playing in his first tournament in 5 years, making Top 32 with a Zoodiac Kaiju Deck. Jeff is running Zoodiacs without the Kaijus. This is a match-up that would likely be in the Finals if both players were in opposite brackets. Instead, one of these accomplished Duelists will have to exit the tournament after this round. Who’s moving forward to Top 16?  Let’s find out!  It’s time to Duel!
