Greetings to all Pojo readers, and all Yugioh players in the
world. I hope this weeks dueling and writing finds you happy
and winning. It has been a while since any large amount’s of
tournament reports have been posted, only the odd one or
two. Since I go to tournaments a fair bit now, I thought I
would help everyone out, and start posting with you greats.
Well, woke up Sunday morning, and got dressed and had a bit
of breakfast. (loves toast) So, set off from my house at
9.00, went to pick up Andy and Craig, proud members of Team
Grimsby and set off for the tournament. We arrived at the
place around 9.50, and waited for the judge to arrive. 10
past he got here, and we began.

Right, the pairing’s were called and I found that I was
facing a new kid I had never seen before, was a little
nervous. He was 11,called Robert. He knew how to play the
game, and was a good sport.
This duel was fast. I lost some life points due to
Confiscation, then a couple of light damage. I didn’t really
draw any monsters I could use in that situation, he gained
life points due to a snatch, then in the end a brain control
and mobius later sealed the game.
This duel was more annoying and worrying then the first
game. Started off with mostly magics, and my trusty
Necrovalley. A few snatch steals, dust tornado’s and a lot
of cards to increase his lifepoints, it ended with two
Gravekeeper assailants and a Gravekeeper spy direct attack
to finish the game.
Well after a more or less comfortable win in the 1st round,
it was time for round two. A few good guys got through like
I expected, and so was waiting for the next guy. To my
surprise, I was paired up against the judges youngest son,
Billy, who was only seven.
This duel was a little hard to remember, it was slow I will
tell you that. He had never seen or dueled against a
gravekeeper deck before, so I had to explain everything I
did, and telling a seven year old this was hard to do. In
the end, after the judge (AkA his dad) stepped in, the
dueled continued, after a snatch steal by him, I dropped his
life points down to 0.
Well, what can I say about this duel. Nothing, didn’t
happen. After the 1st game, Billy didn’t want to play again,
so I won the match.
After this round, I had a little time to spare. I traded a
Dark Necrofear and Dark Ruler Ha Des for a Jinzo. Not bad,
since I wasn’t using either of them. By this time the bar
next to the room we was using had opened, and so It was time
for liquid heaven (ie, pepsi). After this quick break,
everyone else had finished and it was time to continue.
Well well well. Round 3, and who do I get put against, none
other then another kid. I was beginning to get annoyed, as I
still hadn’t faced anyone near my age, and there was plenty
off them. After this, I found a table and waited for Ashley
(who was 11) to come over. He ran a simple deck, mixed in
with a few good cards.
This was a quick duel. I drew a sangan on my 1st draw, he
attacked it and I got a assailant. After this, he used brain
control, and it ended up with a couple of spear soldiers
attacking his scapegoats.
This game was very similar to the last, though I had
confiscation in my opening hand to remove his only monster
in his. After that, necrovalley and my chief and assailants
After this, there was a slight break so I thought I would
test out my deck that I have been working on, my elemental
hero deck. I knew someone (Jason), who had also just made a
elemental hero deck so I thought that a e-hero deck v e-hero
deck. Half way through, the final had to start, but he
claimed the win due to him having slightly more lifepoints.
Next time I shall show my true strength, after I had gotten
something from the judge after the final…
Well, after a undefeated winning streak, I was feeling
pretty confident coming into the final. I was finally facing
my good friend Andy (those who use the message boards might
have seen him post.) Anyway, from past games I have known
him to be annoying and use my weakness – burn deck. I was
expecting a long and drawn out duel, being it a 1 game win.
This was a nice and freshing game. Not having to explain the
rulings was nice, and what was a nice surprise Andy wasn’t
using his burn deck, instead a sorta chaos. I didn’t have a
necrovalley in opening hand, nor any monsters which hurt,
but I did take a direct attack from d.d survivor and he
cleared my f/d torrential tribute using heavy storm. Then
after a while, I set Two useless spells to try to bluff my
way through the turn, and then he attacked with a blade
knight at 2000, and another d.d. Survivor.
It was a great day, and after a well dueled final, Andy got
his prize – a pack of Dark rev one, and pulled a reflect
bounder. He was very happy, as he wasn’t expecting it, and
fitted right into his deck.
After everything had finished, and people was going home, I
took a look at the judges (David Hanner) newest folder, all
the cards he got from Gen Con, and saw he had a Elemental
Hero Shining Flare Wingman, ultimate version. I managed to
get his for my e hero deck at the cost of cost down, big
shield gardna and a ancient gear golem. It was a nice trade.
After this, team Grimsby left louth back to sunny old
Grimsby, had some lunch at good old maccies, went back to
Andy’s house, dueled some more (me, beating him 3-1), and
that was the end of the day.
