    I am trying to figure out what to play but I figure I wanted to take out a Minun for a 4th Beach, but decide against it. While I didnt need 4 beach, I definantely didnt need the Minun. I played a total of 9 games and I only play Minun once, and that was in the first game of T16. I could of replaced it with something more useful.

    Anyways on to the report. I played the same list card for card as States, which I play Banette.

    R1 - Dana - (Dark Deck)

    She goes first, but her start is pretty bad and I take out all 3 of her pokemon to win by benching her.



    R2 - John - (Dark Deck)

    Another dark deck are you kidding me. I go 2nd again, and take out a few pokemon with my Banette's. He then ko's me with an Honchkrow LV. X. I bring up Banette put a charm and pluspower on it and then proceed to not draw out of like 8 cards 1 of the 3 pluspowers I would need to bench him. I dont, and I cant ko the Honchkrow who only has 10 dmg left. He gets some more pokemon out and I lose.



    R3 - Dan L. - (Mirror)

    So, where are all the GG? I am like this stupid. So, anyways, I go 2nd for the 3rd straight game. I cant win the opening flip. It is nice that I have manage to start with shuppet all 3 games so far though. He gets a pretty bad draw and I take an early prize lead, which lead to me being ahead the whole game, since he couldnt catch up.



    R4- Greg S. - (GG)

    Finally, but I decide to Mulligan 4 times and manage to go 2nd for the 4th straight game, but I did start with Shuppet. He goes and uses disable on Duskull, which seriously didnt help me out. I got start getting setup, and he celio's for Sableye. I decide to KO it with Ghost Head after he ko's my Shuppet. He ends up drawing pretty much nothing the rest of the game, and I win on time by taking a prize after we are tied 3-3 in prizes when time is called.



    R5 - Adam C. - (GG)

    I finally go first, and getting setup. I am not sure if I started with Baltoy this game, but I only started with Baltoy in 1 of the 9 games. I started with Shuppet in the other 8. However, I get a quick Crystal Beach. I am ahead the whole game however his 2 Tauros drastically help him out. However since I play 3 Crystal Beach the 3rd one sticks. I end up taking out his Gallade for my last prize to win.



    R6 - Eric - (GG)

    I mulligan once, and He goes first, but this game is pretty much done after I get a few Banette's up, I won the wagers, and I got my Crystal Beach locked in and he end up only being able to take 2 prizes to the 6 that I take.



    R7 - Ben S. - (Mirror)

    I get a great start, and him not so much. He goes first and ascensions. I go and I do the same. He doesnt have any energies, and I proceed to to run thru him after he does Ghost Head to put my Banette at 7 DMG. He isnt able to ko out.



    T16 - Patrick - (Skittles)

    I am 4th seed going in and there are NO GG's on my bracket, while Ben, my 7th round opponent has a Cake Walk to T4 as it is him and 3 other GG. I feel I have a decent matchup, if I get a decent start.

    G1 - He goes first, and gets setup up. I go and ascension. He decides to put me to sleep, and I dont wake up and this was huge. We are tied 4-4 eventually and when he gets the 2nd Ho-Oh UP, and I really cant come back, I conceed G1. My lunatone was prize, along with a Banette. I also went 0 for 3 on TSD. I only needed 1 heads.

    G2 - I mulligan for only the 6th time all day, I start with 2 shuppet. However, I take a chance and go first. I dont draw the energy and he proceeds to donk me with a first turn Kiss. He didnt get enough energy off it, but I didnt have what I needed so I conceed as wish him luck.



    I hopefully will go up a tiny bit, but 6-2 isnt all that bad. I would of like to of gone first more than twice, especially since one of the two was because I loss a top cut game. I pull a Dialga Lv. X from my packs which is okay. I end up finishing 10th overall, which isnt too bad, but it isnt awesome either.

    Oh well, thanks for reading,

    Oh, there was, it just I got stuck in a crappy bracket to T4. I would of had to play the winner of Skittles - Magmortar/Claydol. So, I would have had problems either way.

    I think about 8 GG made T16. It was unfortunate that I wasnt paired up against any of them.

    Thanks for posting,

    really don't feel bad if you had played Frankie like i did..... lol you probaly would have done better than me starting with minun but w/e gj on t16 especially since you weren't feeling so good right before.

    Yeh, but you got those 2 wins, beforehand, so you got some xtra ratings points before you lost in T4.

    Yeh, it really really does.

    Yeh, I feel it is a winnable matchup. It is hard, but winnable. I got some crappy luck against it. I will also say, I was more upset that I started with Shuppet 8/9 games and of the games we rolled on who go first, I won 1/8 and the 1 time I won was I beleive the only game I didnt start with Shuppet. That is how crappy my rolling/luck was yesterday.
