[div]Petz opened the match with [velo] and a Set [st].

Smith Summoned [undine] and added [controller] to his hand, sending [ahi] to the Graveyard. Velo was then destroyed in battle. Smith Set 1 card and lost it to [mst].

Petz Summoned [guaiba], took down Undine in battle and brought out another copy before [xyz]ing [dolkka].

Smith played [allure], drawing 2 and banishing [controller]. He then destroyed Dolkka with [soul taker] before [salvage] returned [undine] and [ahi] to his hand. Smith worked out his options (7 cards in-hand) and discarded 2 cards to Summon [megalo], adding [asphere] to his hand. He Summoned [ahi] and then [amark]; Petz worked out the numbers and conceded right away.[/div]

Petz has been surprising opponents all day.

[div]Petz kicked off Duel 2 with [pod], getting [hanzo] (!?) before Summoning it and Setting 2 cards.

Smith destroyed Hanzo with [hole] and Summoned [undine], adding [controller] to his hand and sending [adrag] to the Graveyard. [megalo] came down next but when the discarded [amark] targeted Petz’ card, he chained it ([safe zone]). Smith Tributed [undine] to attack twice before Setting a card.

Petz played another [pod], this time taking [coth]. Petz Summoned [ngs] and Set 3 cards. Smith played [asphere] at the end of [mp2], which eventually lead to [linde] being Summoned and destroyed to bring out [pike], giving him a free [undine].

Smith started his turn and Petz revived [hanzo] with [coth], getting [ugn]. He followed up with [supertrans], bringing out [wdn] and equipping it with [safe zone]! And finally… Smith entered his Main Phase 1. Smith Summoned [undine], getting a free [controller] and sending [diva] to the Graveyard. [poa] sent back 5 monsters and he drew 2 cards. Smith Set 2 [st]s and passed.

Petz played [planter], sending the (expired) [coth] to the Graveyard to draw 2 cards. [rota] got him a [hanzo] which was Summoned. [wdn] attacked [pike], and Hanzo took down Undine. Petz Set a card and Smith played [asphere] to repeat the [linde] combo from before, this time Summoning [megalo].

Smith destroyed Hanzo with [megalo] and Summoned [diva], bringing out [amark] with its effect. [reborn] revived [adrag] and soon after Smith [synch]ed [wurm], kicking back Petz’s Set card and [supertrans]. The set card was also [supertrans] though and Petz used it to replace his [wdn] with another.

Petz Set 3 cards and passed.

Smith started his turn and Petz used [safe zone] on [wdn], sealing the Duel in Smith’s mind.[/div]

Petz levels the score!

Try and get past me now!

[br]
[div]Smith began Duel 3 with a Set monster and [st].

Petz opened with [guaiba], destroying [linde] in battle which brought out [pike]. Guaiba Summoned another copy and Petz [xyz]ed [dolkka] before Setting 3 cards, losing one to [mst].

Smith began his turn to see [dolkka] get equipped with [safe zone]. Smith Chained with [mst] to destroy it (activating it too early and thus Dolkka was unaffected). [soul taker] took down Dolkka instead as Smith Summoned [undine], getting a free [controller] and sending [amark] to the Graveyard. Both monsters attacked directly.

Petz Summoned [guaiba], revived another with [reborn] and took down both of Smith’s monsters before [xyz]ing [laggia].

Smith ran the numbers and played [salvage], which was negated. He then Summoned [diva], which brought out [amark]. He [synch]ed [catastor] which was halted by [sj]. Smith ended his turn as time was called.

Petz attacked with Laggia and Smith Summoned [gorz]. Petz set a card.

Smith took down Laggia with Gorz and Set a [st].

Petz set a [st].

Smith attacked with his Token and monster, and after playing [reborn] to bring back a monster in [def] Petz conceded the Match.[/div]

Frazier Smith wins the Match!
