The drive down was good,just like the old days.We reach Exeter with no trouble...all around us Pokemon
players are getting out of their cars.I see my mate Qays and I chat with him as we enter the shop. Wow!
Recomended,what a venue!Tables arranged really well,ladies and mens toilets...cool!The shop has been redone.

I play a warm-up match against a boy called Melvin.Guess who my first round was against?Melvin.

Round 1 v Melvin

He uses powerful basics.However,he has problems with his energy.I'm playing Speedrill/Butterfree
and its too fast for him to gain the upper hand.I win.


Round 2 v Karen

I would have fainted seeing she plays fire (the only protection I had was the RG Butterfree and Ancient
Tomb) if not for my awesome hand:Beedrill,Rare Candy,Weedle and Grass Energy.Even against Fire
I'm too quick.T1 Poison Sting,and from T3 onwards Link Needle.GG


Round 3 v Adam

It's not every day you play against a 15+,but I suspect he's a beginner.The match goes on and on
until with three Beedrill in play I KO a Dusclops EX.A tough match,I would have said,if not for some other matches I played.


Round 4 v ???

A long match.Luckily my deck is built to go suicidal with DS Beedrill.It's a match that could go either way untill finally his deck gives way and I break through.The sort of match that made Round 3 look easy.


Round 5 v ???

Something has returned.Something that broke through last year.Dragtrode.EEEEEEEEEEK!!!
Crash splat boom bang bish bosh bash.I lose(BTW hopeful Dragtrode players I've rebuilt my deck.
Hopefully I can handle you.).


Round 6 v Kate

The final round.Apparently if Kate loses and if I win I win 11-14.Relaxing,eh?Anyway...
I can just catch up with speed Dustox EX.I drop an Ancient Tomb as I see she has a Houndoom on her bench.A long match (another one!) untill we both have 1 prize left. She sends out Cascoon,uses Emerge,
gets heads and sends out a new Dustox EX.BUT she has no energy and three Link Needles later...


Whoever predicted the tournament thing was right.Woohoo!!!BTW Qays qualified too.Double Woohoo!!!
See you all at Nationals.Bye.

Congrats on the win, I went to the Exeter CC when the place was being redone. Its a pretty nice venue but they realy should do top cuts. Anyways, GL at nationals.
