    Well I guess I had 2 do this sometime. I live 10 minutes away from the Convention which is a Plus. I love Columbus!! Anyway I have DuskQueen and Monarchy built, but I hatwe thier match-up's against Empoleon. So I dicide 2 put an old Empo list together and don't have the stuff 4 it. Scared 2 barrow from someone b/c of an event that occured @ last years nats I jus said screw it. Then my good friend Kim told me jus 2 run her GG which was weird as heck! With no other deck in mind, I accept sadly and get ready 4 the tourney.....

    On w/ the report-

    R1- Guy BanBliss/CessBeach Lock

    Oh fun, Banette. I take a couple prizes then this guy jus gets good set upand runs though me. I'm ok though. Remaining Prizes- 1-3 I'm losin. Grab that duskull with psychic, rare candy DRE. No Hard Feelings right?:lol: GG 1-0

    R2-Cool Lady Empoleon/ Bronzong

    I love the way this deck plays! She had T2 Empoleon, but I had T2 Gallade. Flipped over 4 for 130 and she couldn't get goin after that. GG 2-0

    R3- Stephen BanBliss

    OMG I hate this deck, but love stephen. One of my fellow Ohioans! Wish I could have gave him a better game though. I had Duskull start 2 his Chansey.I should last a few turns w/ my resistance right? WRONG!!!!!! T2 Blissey boost stregth charm. I had a Ralts 2 but the story isn't much different. BTW my hand= Gardy, Gallade, Gallade, Scramble, Crap. Anything missing?:mad: GG 2-1

    R4- Nice Lady Empoleon/ Bronzong

    This was a fun one. We both got get up and it went 2 time. I'm pretty sure my psychic locking her claydols and suicunes didn't help her 2 much. If it wasn't 4 time, I think she would have had me!:eek::eek: 3-1

    R5- Erik Nance BanBliss

    U know the bad thing about winning? U gotta play other people who keep winning. Man that blows. Anyway, he gets T2 Banette, beach and cess on me. Guess he knew wat he was up against. It's a good thing he couldn't get his banette in the discard only doin 40 4 about three turns. I set up a gallade and went work. I was worried he may have a lake boundry lurkin somewhere, but he didn't. We trade prizes. Then I finally get my dusknoir set up. Palm his lunatone and bring down the shuppet. Tied 2-2 I had Gallade, Gardy, Claydol, Dusknoir. He had 2 Blisseys. Both of my prizes were unflipped. His blisseys weren't tanked up so I took advantage. Got out the lake boundry and flip over one 4 psy cut. K.O. Next Turn Re-Run! That was a great game. The windstorm pulls were way lucky! Erik Nance is a great player and sport!:thumb: Hope 2 play u again. 4-1

    After 5 rounds I'm 4-1 and in 30th place out of 500+! This is a wierd feeling 4 me, as I don't do well in tournaments. But don't worry! I would feel my usual way again soon enough!:biggrin:

    R6- Pretty Girl Gardevoir/ Empoleon

    IDK wat happened 2 me this game I jus broke down. We both had good set up, but I was pretty sure I had the advantage. I was makin misplays left and right. Soon time was called and I was down 1 on her turn. GG 4-2

    R7- Some Guy Eeveelutions

    Holy Crap! Something other than gallade or empoleon! NO WAY!! T3 Leafeon Lv. X. K.O after K.O.. I finally I kill it. He brings up Leafeon and premier balls.Come on man!! I couldn't get him. GG 4-3

    R8- Another Guy Mirror

    I can't think while playin the mirror match. Plus he knew his deck better than I did. GG 4-4

    R9- The Last Guy MagKiss

    I do not wanna play @ this point. He got wat he needed anyway and I let him cream me. 4-5

    Wow. Well anyway, overall I had alot of fun. I didn't plan on makin Top Cut, but when the opportunity comes wat r ya gonna do! Thats how I felt after R5 when I was 4-1. 4 anyone who reads this thank u and I hope u enjoyed it!

    You did awesome dude! I was and am so proud of you. You've got to stop letting the pretty girls distract you! :lol: Team Legion had a rough day but you were one of the highlights and we will win some next year.

    D, you have to stick with your psychic decks because you are just so good with them. Believe in yourself..... The rest of us believe in you.

    And thanks for being there when Andrew just missed the cut......

    Stick to what you know, dude. What you know will always be a lot better than something you pick up and play in a few hours, even if it is GG.

    Nontheless, not a bad showing and good job sticking through to the end, bro. I just wish our third round match was a bit more eventful, eh?

    And tell that bum Reordan not to run off when he drops. :p
