    So, I decide to stick with Empoleon/Omastar with exactly the same list as last weeks win.

    R1 - ???????? (??????)

    My opponent doesnt show up so I get a free win.

    Win (1-0)

    R2 - Frankie Durso (BanBliss)

    I am not going to go into this game, I just want to tell Frankie I am sorry and I was not trying to be mean, I was just joking. I apologize and I hope you can forgive me and we can still be friends. I promise not to say/do that again. Sorry man.

    Win (2-0)

    R3 - Sonny F. (GG)

    He only attacks with Absol the whole game and at one points has 4 Absol in play and nothing else.

    Win (3-0)

    R4 - Danny R. (Sceptile/Leafeon/Torterra/Claydol)

    His deck is suprisingly good. However we both get eh starts but I am able to recover first and I am able to start spreading damage. By the time he gets set up. I have 2 prizes remaining compared to his 6. He is able to ko two of my Empoloen with his Torterra Lv. X, however his 2 Claydol on the bench with 70 each on them give me the win because of Star or Empoleon.

    Win (4-0)

    So, I am first seed going into top cut.

    T4 - Greg S. (GG)

    G1 - I get a really quick start and he gets a pretty bad one and I end up being him pretty bad.

    G2 - Same as G1 except the opposite happens.

    G3 - I take the first prize via Dual Splash in G3 and win the game because we were in sudden death.

    Win (5-0/6-1)

    T2 - Benny R. (GG)

    G1 - He uses Psychic Lock the whole game and we keep trading prizes as he keeps a constant psychic lock on me. However, I manage to keep it tied 2-2. He however makes a mistake by using his Telepass twice, Celio's then Wager so the game state is unrepairable and I get the G1 win. He had me though.

    G2 - I get a crappy start and he beats me soundly.

    G3 - He takes the first prize and time is called on his turn. I tie the game up next turn and take the lead in two turns. If the round was 30 seconds longer I win the tourney. I actually am pretty sure I win G3 either way but whatever.

    Loss (5-1/7-2)

    So, I get 2nd and I am kinda upset that I loss because I beleived I had G3, but if I look at it Logically even if I hadnt gotten a free win via a Game Loss, Benny would of won that game. So I guess he just got better draws in the matchup for the Finals.

    Props -

    Benny for finally being able to beat me in the finals to take home his Vicky Medal. :thumb:
    Kettler for the help once again.
    Chad for the idea originally
    4 Points w00t via the rankings.
    Vicky Medal not being on site the one time Benny wins. :lol:
    Benny + Gang for being :cool:
    Reyes for an awesome deck idea

    Slops -

    Getting a Caution and a Warning for two different things in the Tournament. I have gotten a total of 3 Warnings since playing and I was kinda upset. I was pretty disappointed in myself for getting them.
    Losing 8 points becaue I lost in the Finals.
    Now claiming my 3rd Vicky Medal.
    Not pulling anything worthwhile in my packs.
    Diaz for going 2-2 :frown:
    Me for getting Durso who has been a really really good friend mad at me. :nonono:

    Hello Drew,
    I had to leave early for my Mother’s Birthday party. And like I mentioned to you before, I am not mad at you. I value you as a friend and look up to you as an experienced Pokemon trading card gamer. I can’t count the times you helped me improve my decks, and made me into a better card player. Congratulations on taking second place, and I hope we can both put this behind us.


    *Props to Benny for taking the tournament*:thumb:

    Yeh, thanks.

    Not a problem.

    Oh, that is good, tell you mom, I wish her a Happy B-day. I am glad to hear that. I hope we can meet up before Nationals and playtest some ideas. If you want PM me and we can possibly devise a time to do so. If you wanted to take the train to my house that would work well, for anytime pretty much next week. :thumb:

    Thanks, yes Diaz went, as did Durso.

    Thanks All,

    Don't feel to bad about the Warings/Cautions dude I have gotten tons. However in my defense I don't think forgeting to discard a Supporter(Yes this pretty much is where all mine come from) or bring damage counters should really be offenses. Anyway nice job any day you gain points is a good day.
