    Before nats

    I deck test with a lot of my friends with the decks in the meta-game,I'm thinking about Empolean
    and some how Dylan convince's me into playing it. I arrive on thursday and play in league and stuff.
    I deciede Empolean is the play and play it.

    Nats

    I get up see Dylan and wait in line a deck-check, after a hour of waiting they finally start the tourney!
    I'm in Jr's!

    Round 1 vs EmpoBliss
    She lose's wager with no claydols nuff said.
    1/0

    pairings take forever,finally they're up!

    Round 2 vs theme deck
    I get a bad start but manage to win.
    2/0

    Round 3 vs James M W/MagLeafeon
    Noooooo! Not one of my best friends already! He get's a bad start, I win.
    3/0

    I meet Chimchar between rounds:confused::confused::thumb:!
    Round 4 vs Danny S (furrymuskrat03 on pokegym)W/G&G
    Nooooo!!! Not another of my friends. I win somehow.

    4/1

    Round 6 vs Keith B W/Gyarados/Mothim
    I get a game loss for shuffling my hand into my deck thinking my opponent's playing wager. GG, Keith.
    4/2 :frown:

    I know now I have to win every other match to top cut.
    To be continued

    Round 7 Vs InferDol
    He dos'nt get an infernape all game. GG.
    5/2

    Round 8 vs Nice kid playing Eeveelutions
    He resign's early in the game,we continue playing for fun! The judge's ask if I'll let him take back his resign, I say...no. GG,man.
    6/2

    Yes!!! I top cut!!! New england gets 2 players other than me in Jr's top-cuted and 3 in Sr's and not
    sure in master's. I go made the hotel and go to bed.

    I get up eat breakfast with my mom and meet up with the rest the New England crew!

    Top 32 vs Keith B (from round 9)
    Game 1: It's a close game I win.
    Game 2 :Another close game I lose.
    Game 3: I kill a Unown P and Burmy for the game.

    Yes!!! I'm in the top 16. Thomas lost:frown:, Noah won:smile:, Johnathan lost:frown:, Dyaln aslo lost:frown: and Nick won:smile:.

    Top 16 vs Steven Y (charchar on pokegym)
    Game 1: I sweep!!

    Top 8 vs Jason C w/G&G
    Game 1: I lose.
    Game 2 : I concede cuz I already have the invite and trip.

    So I'm 8/3 w/ a rating boost.

    Serebii1997J- Thanks, I hope TGW is banned for 2008-2009 season, unless you have claydol its hard to make a comeback from losing wager.

    Apache-Do I know you?
