Round 10 Feature Match: Chase Cunningham versus Richard St. Jovite

November 8th, 2015

After getting 2nd at this year’s NAWCQ and a Top 4 finish at the World Championship in Kyoto, Chase Cunningham has been on a real hot streak. He has chosen to bring Burning Abyss this weekend, and while we had seen a ton of this strategy throughout the recent competitive season, it has definitely diminished in numbers this tournament. His opponent is Richard St. Jovite who is one of many players Dueling with Kozmo. Will the power of Kozmo Dark Destroyer be too much for Burning Abyss to handle? Or can Cunningham navigate correctly to claim victory?

Cunningham won the roll and chose for St. Jovite to go first.

Round 9 Feature Match: Zhenning Guo versus Sven Amaya

November 8th, 2015

Zhenning Guo is the only undefeated Majespecter Duelist left in the tournament, and while he is probably already locked for Top Cut at this point, getting into the Top 32 as the first seed has some pretty big upside in terms of who you are paired against in the first rounds. His opponent is Sven Amaya, one of many Duelists who chose to Duel with Kozmo this weekend, but unlike Guo he is sitting at 7-0-1, meaning that he has a draw and that this match matters much more for him. If he loses this match he will need to win the following, otherwise he is likely to be out of contention for Top Cut. Who will come out on top between this battle between Dimension of Chaos strategies?

Amaya won the roll and opted for Guo to go first.
