Final Round Feature Match: Jeff Jones vs. Renaldo Lainez

April 26th, 2010

Renaldo Lainez is the surprise success of the weekend, Dueling his way to the Finals with a Gadget Deck that doesn’t run any Machina monsters.

His opponent is Jeff Jones, the most successful Quickdraw Dandywarrior Duelist of the weekend! Jones has made Day 2 at 5 SHONEN JUMP Championships, and won his first victory one year ago at SHONEN JUMP Championship Anaheim, winning the first Dark End Dragon prize card. Read more…
