Most of the people participating in the tournament had rather decent decks.  Much trading and dueling went on during the tournament.  Most of the people had spent rather large sums of money and time creating there decks as many people do.  The first few duels where quite easy and I won without much effort.  As soon as I beat 3-4 people, the competition heated up.  I faced many hard duels and duelests.  One guy, had a rather strong deck composing of 2 or 3 Sanga of Thunders.  He was rather hard.  Once he had 2 of them out I activated my mirror force,  but to my surprize he countered it with 7 tools of the bandit, thus diminishing my hopes of winning. After my first elimination, I dueled 2 more times and I won both. Finally only 1 more duelest stood between me and the guy who headed the tournament ( he was the final duelst).  After a long hard duel, I came out victorious.  The final score: Me 1000lp, Him 0.  The Final duel to place between me and the tournament director.  He had many tricks up his sleeve.  At one point, he had me traped but then I drew my swords of revealing light.  On the secound turn of the swords, I drew my Raigeki and destroyed his Summoned Skull and Black Skull Dragon.  Soon after I got out my Black Skull Dragon and diminished his LP to 0.
For winning the tournament I got 5 Metal Raiders Packs. 
Well,  I hope this helps.  If you have questions you can contact me at  Happy dueling!
