Round 3 Feature Match: Davor Jevrosimov vs. Luca Chetoni

Facing each other in round 3 of the main event are Davor Jevrosimov from Croatia and Luca Chetoni who’s from a town near Pisa, Italy. Jevrosimov had to drive 8 hours to make it to Milan while it took Chetoni only 3.

Chetoni won the die roll and opted to go first. He relied on a Plant Synchro Deck and Jevrosimov piloted Gladiator Beasts. Jevrosimov was pretty confident and said that he felt comfortable with his Deck, winning the first 2 matches at relative ease. Chetoni said he had Lady Luck on his side in one of the Duels prior to this round, but he hopes he can pull it off even if he doesn’t have her blessing again.

[foolish] was the first card to be played by Chetoni and he sent [dandy] to his Graveyard, leaving him with 2 Fluff Tokens. [lonefire] was Normal Summoned and after both Tokens were sent to the Graveyard, Chetoni had [tytannial] and a second [lonefire] on his side of the field. He passed.

Jevrosimov wasn’t impressed. He activated [hole] to clear the field, followed it up with [darius], attacked directly and tagged his Gladiator Beast out to bring out [retiari]. He removed [dandy] from Chetoni’s Graveyard, Set 2 Spell or Trap Cards and play was back to Chetoni.

Even though he had a strong opening, Chetoni was sitting in a tough spot already. He activated [reborn] and it got him [tytannial]. Next, he Summoned [dandy] and then he continued with his Battle Phase. He sent [tytannial] into [retiari], but Jevrosimov activated [bom]. [dandy] was Tributed for [tytannial]'[s] effect, however, Jevrosimov chaned [chariot] to leave Chetoni with 2 Tokens only. After setting a spell or trap, Chetoni was done.

[rai oh] came out, but Chetoni flipped [tt] to wipe the field! 2 cards left on Jevrosimov’s hand and he didn’t seem to happy. He eventually activated [reborn] to get [tytannial], attacked directly and passed.

Davor Jevrosimov takes the first Duel by storm!

[nbsp]

[reborn] got Davor Jevrosimov the [tytannial] from Luca Chetoni’s Graveyard [dash] a huge threat, usually working in Chetoni’s favor. Turned against him, he didn’t have an answer and was defeated by his own monster. That’s the power of [reborn].

Both players took some time to check their Side Decks and exchange some cards that would prove useful in this match-up. Jevrosimov was a little faster than his opponent and he made use of the time to study Chetoni’s every move. It didn’t seem like the Italian was giving away anything, so we shuffled up and started the second Duel.

Chetoni went first once more Set a card to each zone.

Jevrosimov had [laquari], but [bth] removed it from game. He Set 3 Spell or Trap Cards and passed.

[cold wave] at the beginning of Chetoni’s Main Phase allowed him to strip Jevrosimov of all his defenses! He flipped [ryko], destroying [warning]. He Tributed it for [caius] and removed [prison] before attacking directly.

Jevrosimov simply passed.

Chetoni used [duality], which got him [debris]. [dandy] and [tt] were placed under his deck. [caius] struck again and dealt another 2400 points of damage. Chetoni Tributed the Monarch for another copy, but Jevrosimov Chained [tt], clearing the field.

In his following turn, he Summoned [darius] and attacked directly. [veiler] was used to make sure the Gladiator Beast wouldn’t tag out, in Main Phase 2, Jevrosimov Set a spell or trap and he passed.

[mst] from the top was immediately activated and it destroyed [bom]! That was good for Chetoni!

[debris] was Summoned next and it brought back [trooper]; 3 cards were sent to the Graveyard and among them was [dandy]. One of the resulting Tokens was Tuned together with both monsters to [stardust]. The Dragon attacked directly and Chetoni was done.

Jevrosimov had [rai oh] and he Set a spell or trap. He passed.

[stardust] attacked, but [mf] was activated. [bom] was Chained to turn [stardust] face-down.

2 spells or traps came down for Jevrosimov and he attacked into [stardust]. Chetoni played a card ([i]I missed to spot the card, the players were a little too fast [dash] sorry[/i]) to get rid of [rai oh].

[bulb] was Summoned and together with one of the Tokens, it was Tuned to [fsynch]. [noex] was activated on [chariot] and it stripped Jevrosimov’s deck of another copy! [stardust] attacked directly and play was back to Jevrosimov.

He activated [proving ground] which got him [laquari]. He attacked over [fsynch], tagged out and got [equeste]. This got him [darius] from his deck and he then passed.

Chetoni Summoned [lonefire]. He Tributed it for its own effect to get a second copy out of his deck. He Tributed it too to get [tytannial]. [bulb]'[s] effect was used to return it to the field. [tytannial] then attacked over [equeste], [stardust]'[s] attack followed and Jevrosimov activated [prison], however, [bulb] bit the dust for [tytannial]'[s] effect to negate the effect and force the attack through!

Chetoni activated [mst] and destroyed [bth]. He Set a card to each zone and play was back to Jevrosimov.

[trap stun] was used first before [proving ground] got him [bestiari]. He Set a monster and Special Summoned [gyzarus], destroying [ryko] and the Set [bandit]. Chetoni was left with no field! [gyzarus] tagged in and out came [laquari] and [hoplomus], setting up both Jevrosimov’s offense and defense. He Set a spell or trap and ended.

Things weren’t looking great for Chetoni; he Summoned [debris], brought back [ryko] and Jevrosimov stopped him right there. He thought for a moment before using [bom] to flip [debris] face-down. Chetoni thought about attacking and asked about the Life Points, but opted against it and passed.

His attempt to bluff a [honest] on his hand failed as Jevrosimov sent [heraklinos] into [ryko]. That was enough to win him the game and Chetoni extended his hand!

[nbsp]

Davor Jevrosimov remains undefeated and wins the match!

Asked about the most important plays in this match, Jevrosimov and Chetoni agreed that [hole] in the first Duel and [trap stun] in the last made the difference. Luca Chetoni had no chance to recover after his defense was stripped thanks to the tricky trap.
