Anyway the usual went on beforehand, woke up with just enough time to get dressed while my friend Eric and
brother Cody dueled or whatever. Tourney's "at 10" though the store opens at 10 so it usually starts around
10:30 or so. Today we got 6 people (if my other friend wasn't outta town it woulda been 7), so there would only
be 3 rounds of Swiss.

Round 1
Zombie vs. Monarch
My brother originally adapted RegnR8's Monarch idea to his Chaos, though now he's practially copied it.
Anyway it went 2-0 because I drew crap starting hand and crap after a Fiber 2nd game.

Round 2
Zombie vs. N00bness
This guy's a complete n00b, never gets the idea to run better stuf for somethin. I dunno. I forgot to take notes
again so all I can say is that I won without much contest.

Round 3 vs. Pyro/Burn
Kid whose uncle (also playing) built him this deck. He knows what he's doing though.

Match 1
Won the dice roll, went first. Went defensive setting Turtle and some S/T. His turn I Drop Offed Ultimate
Baseball Kid. He removed for Spirit of Flames, tributed for Thestalos (picked Fiber Jar). Passed to my turn. I
set Spirit Reaper, passed. He attacked Turtle with Thestalos, and I was searching, he tried playing Raging
Flame Sprite and attacking. I said he summoned so it wasn't the battle phase, he smacked himself and passed.
I chose Ryu Kokki. My turn I flipped up Reaper, hit Sprite for 200. Passed (forget all the S/T stuff going on).
He special summoned another Spirit of Flames, hit Reaper with it then kamikazed Ryu Kokki. My turn I Book
of Lifed Ryu Kokki and summoned Don. Hit the Spirit with Ryu Kokki and attacked with Don, discarding
something insignificant. Game ended soon after, can't remember the details.

Match 2
Forget this match, but I lost sairly bad. Down to 6700 first turn, lost when I attacked Raging Flame Sprite while
I was at 400, he flipped Backfire >.<

Match 3
Counting the Spirit of Flames I Drop Offed, he saw all 3 and 2 Thestalos (including an ultimate one he was proud
of). Yet again, I barely hang in there for the win. Vampire Lord, 2 Ryu Kokki, and plenty of recursion later, that

Record: 4-3, though since UDE only counts rounds, technically its 2-1

I was tied with Eric 2-1 though he somehow got picked for the finals. I think its because he was in a tournament
when I wasn't there, therefore he'd have more rating, though I dunno.

-Not borrowing entree fee for once (actually have plenty of money this time around)
-TBS for giving out more packs than they should (6 people with $3 entree = 4-5 packs retail, they gave away 6
-Learning that TBS' other location gets like 5x as many people, plus they have more than 1 weekly tournament

-Barely winning to Greg, whom I usually annihilate
-Losing 0-2 to my brother, whom I usually get 2 wins in a row with
-Getting a total of 2 Book of Life in my first 2 rounds, which I was holding with Ryu Kokki when I lost the second
time against my bro.
-Not having a 2nd Creature Swap or any Enemy Controller to mess around with
-No one new coming this week, not that TBS advertises it or anything ( everyone goes to their other location
