First round pairings up!


Pictures from round one. 8-3 win against Matt's triple Cymoon.





Round two pairings. I'm fighting against my own Sato list!

10-1 win and I forgot to take pictures in the later rounds. I got the tabling with a final engine techs ram against his MC75!




Reception is shit, so sorry for not getting the pairings up sooner.


Pictures from round three. Played against Adam Newton's Ackbar list. Unbelievably tense game. I got the table on turn six with a kamikaze ram against his assault frigates and a long range bullseye from Liberty and ram against his Jaina's Light. Super tight and extremely well played game which went 8-3 to me by a hair.

Round four pairings.


Totally forgot photos in round four. Another really tight game that came down to one damage. Lost 3-8 to duck_bird aka Alex. I had multiple shots on the ISD that were nothing but blanks and accuracies. It's been happening all day, but it cost me the game this time. 29 tourney points over 4 rounds so far!

Final round pairings


Pictures of round three against Darlye's Y-Wings. I ran him down pretty well, pulling off a 10-1 final round.




And the final standings. Alex and Adam have guaranteed slots for Saturday, and with 39, I'm highly likely to make it as well!
