Round 11 Feature Match: William Erker (Inzektors) vs. Daniel Ritchie (Frog Monarchs)

April 29th, 2012

Welcome to the final round of Swiss-paired play! After this point we’ll be cutting to the top 32 players. Each of these Duelists has two losses so far, so a win is needed in order to have a chance at the finals.

Daniel Ritchie is from nearby Elgin, Illinois. He is here with his Frog Monarch deck, packing Sea Lancer! Last round, he finished his Duel with a massive Sea Lancer, Light and Darkness Dragon, and Gachi Gachi Gantetsu attacking directly while he had only 100 Life Points. That’s a comeback Yugi himself would be envious of!

William Erker is from St. Louis, Missouri. He chose to play Inzektors today and is part of a big swarm of bug Duelists that have descended on Chicago this weekend! Fish normally feed on insects, but Erker’s certainly going to try and turn that around in this match.
