Finals Feature Match: Cameron Neal vs. Avery Foster

August 26th, 2018

Cameron Neal and Avery Foster are two of the most dedicated Duelists in the tournament hall. Before entering the UDS Invitational – Summer 2018 this weekend, Cameron Neal had more UDS points than any other person, with over 1200 UDS points. He entered this tournament with a Round 1 BYE by using 200 of those points. Avery Foster, on the other hand, had more than the 200 UDS points necessary to enter the tournament with a BYE, but instead decided to only spend 100 of those points and enter without a BYE, allowing him to play in Round 1. “No Ultimate Duelist needs a BYE,” says Foster. As you may recall from his Round 1 Feature Match yesterday, Foster said he enjoys the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG so much that he’d rather play the first round than take a free win. Now, as he’s about to Duel in the Finals, he’s proud to say that he played more Matches of Yu-Gi-Oh! in the tournament this weekend than any other Duelist in the room.
