Reunited with the Coronels!

September 6th, 2015

We first met the Coronel family at the Central American WCQ in Mexico, DF. They were a family of father and two sons, with the father, Juan Carlos, taking the Mexican National Champion title and older son, Juan Carlos Jr. and younger son, Daniel Isai, taking the Mexican Dragon Duel Champion title and runner-up in Dragon Duel Championship, respectively. Juan Carlos, Jr., went so far as to represent Central America in the World Championship in Kyoto, Japan, that took place in August.

Thank You Judge Team!

November 20th, 2011

Thanks from everyone to the terrific Judge Team we had at YCS Kansas City!

Without the time and effort that judges volunteer to help run these events – the events wouldn’t happen!

Be sure and thank your judge for helping everyone to have a good time, whether at a YCS or at your local store!

Thanh Nguyen wins the day with Plant Syncho!

October 10th, 2010

It’s been a wild ride this weekend with everything from Scraps and Naturia monster to Big Piece Golem and Darklord Desire seeing success today. In the end, the Top 4 Duelists were divided: 2 chose X-Sabers and 2 others used Decks powered by Plant monsters and Debris Dragons. While Kenny Kwan went with the traditional Quickdraw Dandywarrior build that’s won in the past Nguyen went without Quickdraw Synchron and will be going home with some fantastic prizes and the knowledge that he outlasted 930 other Duelists to become the winner of YCS Philadelphia!


Top Tables Update!

September 4th, 2010

We’re just over halfway through day 1 of YCS Toronto and there are currently 25 people left with perfect records, and here they are!

Table 1: Michael Fresco (Gladiator Beasts) Vs. Nik Ristoski (LIGHT Beatdown)

Table 2: Mark Alan Johnson (Gladiator Beasts) Vs. Sorosh Saberian (Quickdraw)

Table 3: Matt Peddle (Infernity) Vs. Johnny Tang (Blackwings)

Table 4: Robert Vissa (Absolute Zero) Vs. Steven Kuoch (Machina Gadgets)

Table 5: Bryan Ortiz (Blackwings) Vs. Dominic Lacaille (X-Sabers)
Table 6: Alex N. Vansant (Machina Gadgets) Vs. Bobby Barone (Gladiator Beasts)
Table 7: Nereg Torossian (X-Sabers) Vs. Ali Yassime (X-Sabers)
Table 8: Justin Reyes (X-Sabers) Vs. Logan Djuricin (Frog Monarch)
Table 9: Sean Tohidi (Gladiator Beasts) Vs. Dustin Dalton (X-Sabers)
Table 10: Chris Pittao (Lightsworn) Vs. Joshua Graham (Gladiator Beasts)

Table 11: Roy St Clair (X-Sabers) Vs. Cody Gravelle (Lightsworn)
Table 12: Sasha Del Conte (Blackwings) Vs. Dale Bellido (Infernity)
Table 13: Mian Zheng (X-Sabers) Vs. Billy Espineda (Quickdraw Lightsworn)

Interesting to note is that out of the 26 players in tables 1 through 13, seven of the 26 decks are X-Sabers. This shows that even without Rescue Cat, X-sabers are still a very viable force capable of causing a lot of damage in the tournament scene. Other than that, there are 5 Gladiator Beast Decks, 3 Blackwing Decks, 2 Infernity Decks, 2 Machina Gadget Decks, 2 Lightsworn Decks, 1 Quickdraw Deck, 1 Quickdraw Lightsworn Deck, 1 Absolute Zero Deck, 1 Little City Deck, and 1 Frog Monarch Deck. With over 10 different decktypes at the top tables, it’s anyone’s guess as to what will win this YCS!
