    Pokemon BC Provincials 2011

    Leading up to the tournament i wasn't really sure what to run. considering i won provincials last year, i was a little disturbed by how unmotivated i was to build an excellent deck. It almost got a point where i wanted to run gordon's deck but i coudlnt get the cards in time so i ran a fairly standard luxchomp.

    Round 1: vs Karl's Luxchomp

    I went first, open garchomp, call, sp radar, cyrus. just played textbook mirror to win the round

    1-0. good start.

    Round 2: vs Henry's Fire deck

    I opened chatot collector and went 2nd. i had luxrayX in my hand and just disrupted his setup.

    2-0. unfortunate i had to play my bud but tournaments are like that

    Round 3: vs Kevin's Luxchomp

    I ambipom donk his garchomp with the card i draw for turn being the dce lol

    3-0. lolyes.

    Round 4: vs Gerik's Donphan Machamp.

    I definitely thought i would lose this match as i know he runs 4 SSU, 2 reveral, and multiple warp points.

    i manage to flash impact a machop early game and maintain the lead in the prize trade. eventually, he cant one-shot my driflim FB late game while its sniping uxies.

    4-0. sick.

    Round 5: vs Dexter's Luxchomp

    he goes first and has dragonite and uxie. i open luxray and call and i call. he has dce and e-gain. he takes 2 prizes before i take 1 so i proceeded to scoop since i cant forsee coming back from that far behind based on the cards i knew he had

    4-1. darn

    Round 6: vs Seb T's Dialgachomp

    Im ahead in the prize race by 2 and he tries to deafen stall so i cant use poketurns to retreat my dragonite vs his dialga. eventualyl time is called and i win

    5-1. MADE TOP 8 =D. title defense really begins now!

    1. sebastian - dialgachomp
    2. dexter - luxchomp
    3. gerik - donphan/machamp
    4. julian - luxchomp
    5. gavin - dialgachomp
    6. alex - luxchomp
    7. andrew - lostgar
    8. seb teh - dialgachomp

    Top 8: vs Gavin's Dialgachomp

    1: I donk his unown Q lol
    2: I take a prize lead and win the trade by 1.

    Top 4: vs Seb T's Dialgachomp. REMATCH! (typically the person that wins in swiss loses in top cut lolol)
    1: Close game then he judges. whoever draws better off the judge wins. he draws better
    2: Another erally close game, i have t manufacture prizes as im one prize behind. eventualyl i take the lead by warp nrg'in my garchomp to use dragon rush once again. i eventually win in time, luxray x vs dialga and he needs to take a prize.
    3 SD: i mess up and lose when i likely had game. however, seb let me take back alot of stuff and he definitely deserved the tournament win.

    Decent provincial title defense. thank goodness alex lost so im 3rd instead of 4th lol

    -bidier and sandy for running a great tournament
    -my friends not getting me the cards for the other deck i wanted to run so i ended up t4'in lol
    -decent title defense
    -gordon, andrew, and the other AB players coming all the way to play
    -seb teh for earning the provincial win. played solid players all day. he played 4 of the t8 in swiss. then beat 3 excellent players to win the title. well earned and deserved.
    -fairly good top 8
    -not running into vilegar
    -winning a key bad matchup in swiss, huge morale boost
    -my bandwagon. henry, malcolm, etc....

    -hard to complain, i misplayed ftl but thats on me

    Congrats on 3rd, it's pretty hard to repeat in masters and you made an excellent run at it.

    Also, I want to apologize for that table if it disrupted you at all lol, jack and I were just playing on it and one of the legs collapsed on us.

    @reed: probably not, despite my allegiance with the albertans... washington states is 2 hours away. edmonton is...10+ hours. in addition, alberta is probs gonna be 5 rounds t4 whereas washington will probs be 7 rounds t16. logical to go to washington imo

    We will not have a worst turn out at our Provincials then our Edmonton cities. There will definitely be a top 8. We will be very close to what BC would of hit without the 6 Alberta players.

    Either way congrats on 3rd and good luck in Washington! The more USA states Canada wins the better lol.
