Sheabi Kheireddine is not only the only Duelist from North America to claim a World Championship title, but is the current World Champion. So with that said, it’s pretty obvious that Roberto Gomez isn’t going to have the easiest time winning this match. Both Duelists are playing Burning Abyss, and sitting at 7-1 they are already a lock for Day Two, but the loser will have to win both matches tomorrow to make Top 32.

Gomez won the roll but told Sehabi to go first.

It’s Round 3! We’re here with Shane Wilson and Isaac Rocha, two local area Duelists. Wilson is using a Noble Knight Deck, packing all of the new cards from the Noble Knights of the Round Table Box Set. He’s up against Rocha’s Harpie Deck, which has a strong matchup against Noble Knights thanks to Harpie’s Hunting Ground and Ice Beast Zerofyne. Wilson even asked, “Did you do this on purpose?!” when he found out what Rocha had! There was only one problem – Rocha had never Dueled against Noble Knights before, and didn’t know what any of the cards did! Will he be able to figure it out mid-match?
