[b] Hi Corey, thanks for showing up again. How’s it going for you?[/b]
[quote]A lot better than the first three Rounds. My record improved to 2:4. It’s still not quite what I was expecting, but a lot better than before. My mood is a lot better and a lot of pressure fell off my shoulders when I won my first match. [/quote]
[b] Can you give us an overview of your matches?[/b]
[quote]Sure! Round 4 I faced another Blue Eyes deck. My experiences from the previous game helped me out a lot. I knew what to do and won the match. In Game 1 I opened the combo and he had no answer to it. Game 2 he threw 3 [bewd] on the field and there was nothing I could do. Game 3 I had the combo again. He nearly succeeded to break it. Lucky me he ran out of resources. Round 5 was Metalfoes Majespector. In Game 1 I built my field the way I wanted it to and he had no outs to it. In Game 2 he started and spammed the field full of monsters due the Pendulum mechanic. He even added two more backrow cards and that was it. Game 3 turned onto a very strange grind game. I didn’t open too bad but I couldn’t go into the combo. . I was able to partially set up my board with [vod] and [38]. He got rid of [38] with a Kaiju monster. The game ended with me crashing my [b]Metalfoes Orichalc[/b] into his. We both destroyed a monster on the field (see the picture above). Since I had more monsters than him I was able to attack for game. The match was really fun to play. The first two games only took 5 minutes. The third game took me half an hour to win. Round 6 I faced my Kryptonite: Mermails. They play too many hand traps and my deck doesn’t like them at all. Both games were exactly the same. I started both games, but I couldn’t get to my combo and my opponent opened the nuts. I lost both games quickly. [/quote]

[b] So what are your plans for the rest of the event?[/b]
[quote] The whole day was exhausting. I will see how Round 7 will turn out. Since I won’t be able to make it to Day 2 anymore I will be playing Public Events tomorrow. There are so many great events tomorrow, I don’t know yet. I guess I will enter an Attack of the Giant Card event. [/quote]
Hopefully the Public Events will bring him better luck than the Main Event. We will meet Corey tomorrow once more to see how he is doing.
