QQ: How did you do at Nationals?

We have a little time in between rounds, so I thought why not check on some of the players and ask them about their performances at their respective National Championships.

[b]Robin:[/b] I played the Thunder Deck and ended up on the 128th place. After day 1, I was on 60th place, but unfortunately, I couldn’t quite follow it up on the second day. Then again, I had a blast playing and I qualified, so no reason to complain![/quote]

[b]Deniel:[/b] Truth be told, I’m not doing so well this year. I tried my luck with a Sea Lancer Deck that I’ve been playing for quite a while now, I keep improving it, but sometimes you just draw into hands with few useful cards. That’s what happened to me at the Nationals as well and that’s why I ended up on a 5 – 4 record.[/quote]

[b]Robin:[/b] I ended up on 3rd place just like the year before. I would like to say I want to go all the way next year, but I already tried that this year, so I don’t know exactly where I’m going.

[b]Andreas:[/b] I lost the last round and I didn’t make the cut for that reason. I lost twice in the timeout today, so it seems like I’ve hit a streak of bad luck.[br]

[b]Roman:[/b] I won! (we’ll probably hear a little more from Roman later, so let’s just cap it here)

[b]Reto:[/b] I failed to defend my title, but I reached the Top 8 again, so it’s not too bad. Roman and I are taking turns winning the title.[/quote]

Kimon Tsitsiridis, Christos Alimpampoudis and Chris Boundaloudis are just 3 of the many Greek players this weekend!

[b]Kimon:[/b] I started strong with a 5 – 0 record, but then went on and lost the 3 next matches. If I would have won 1 of them, I would have advanced to the Top 16!

[b]Christos:[/b] I lost to Chris in the first round and couldn’t really recover after that. I dropped rather early from the tournament.

[b]Chris:[/b] I had to play my friends the whole time. I knocked out Kimon in the last round, but didn’t make the cut; if I would have known, I would have let him win so he could advance to the Top 32![/quote]

[b]Valentino:[/b] I won 5 rounds, but I also lost 4 and I drew once. I felt OK with the result, I didn’t expect that much more.

[b]Gabriele:[/b] I only played the first few rounds as I didn’t feel like continuing after a 3 – 3 start. I then enrolled in some Public Events and that was a lot of fun, too.

[b]Niccoló:[/b] I couldn’t attend myself, so I cheered for my friends from home!

It seems like there’s always something good to do when it comes to the National Championships – even when you can’t attend. I hope your Nationals’ weekend was just as successful as Roman Kieser’s and maybe we’ll see you represent your country’s colors at next year’s European Championship as well?!
