Bruun kicked things off, [ss]ing [rabbit] and Tributing it for its own effect to [ss] 2 [saurus] to the field. “No [maxx]?”, he inquired and Van Nijverseel declined. A second later, [laggia] hit the field. Bruun followed it up, setting 3 Spells or Traps and that concluded the turn.
[/p][p]
[duality] revealed [i mantis], [warning] and [maxx]. Van Nijverseel took the Counter Trap Card, shuffled the other 2 cards back in, set 2 back row cards and passed his turn.
[/p][p]
Back to Bruun, who [ns]ed [saurus] – he wouldn’t give Van Nijverseel a break! [warning] was flipped, negating the Summon and destroying [saurus]. [laggia] attacked, but [bom] was supposed to flip it face-down. [lance] was chained to make sure the attack went through and Bruun already asked: “[gorz]?” – sure enough, this time Van Nijverseel didn’t disappoint!
[/p][nbsp]
So far, Bruun was in total control of the game!

[nbsp][p]
Van Nijverseel set a Spell or Trap. [gorz] was switched to [atk], but its attack ended in [prison]. Play was back to Bruun.
[/p][p]
[laggia] successfully took down the token. The Swedish Duelist added another back row card and he passed his turn.
[/p][p]
Van Nijverseel set 2 Spells or Traps.
[/p][p]
4400 Life Points remaining for Van Nijverseel. Bruun [ns]ed [tgu] and in response, Van Nijverseel rolled a die. He used it to decide which card to target with the [mst] he activated in response. He decided on a target and Bruun chained it: An [mst] of his own! He hit [i sword]. [leviair] hit the field after [sangan] and [tgu] were used to Xyz Summon it. [rabbit] came back, next in line were 2 [kabaz], Van Nijverseel flipped [tt], but that’s when [laggia] stepped into the spotlight and stole the show.
[/p][nbsp]

Jack Bruun is only one win away from advancing to the finals!

[nbsp][p]
This time, it was Van Nijverseel who was allowed to go first. He would have to find away to keep Bruun away from [ss]ing his Xyz Monsters to the field that early to stand a chance in this match.
[/p][nbsp]

Max Van Nijverseel now had to win 2 games in a row to make it to the finals!

[nbsp][p]
Van Nijverseel [ns]ed [i fly], equipped it with [i hop] and then detached it to [ss] [i pede] from his Deck. [i hop] returned to the field, was detached once again and that meant that Van Nijverseel could search his Deck for [i fly]. He used both of his monsters to Xyz Summon [zenmaines], added a face-down Spell or Trap to the field and passed.
[/p][p]
[mst] destroyed [prison]. Bruun then [ns]ed [rabbit], which eventually lead to him ending up with [dolkka] on the field. He attacked into [zenmaines] and during the End Phase, he used one material to negate [zenmaines]’ effect which caused it to lose another Xyz Material.
[/p][p]
Van Nijverseel used [hole] to wipe the field. He passed the turn.
[/p][p]
Bruun now had [tgu] and it got him [sangan]. That meant [leviair], which meant [rabbit], which meant 2 [saurus]!
[/p][nbsp]
Bruun was on the way to victory again!

[nbsp][p]
Bruun was about to declare an attack, but thought better of it and used both of his Normal Monsters to bring out [dolkka] for a second time. Attacks followed, he set a Spell or Trap and ended.
[/p][p]
Van Nijverseel set a card to each zone.
[/p][p]
[dolkka] attacked over [i hornet]. [leviair] attacked directly. Bruun set a second Spell or Trap.
[/p][p]
Play was back to Van Nijverseel and he had to think for a long time before deciding on his next move. It seemed like it took him a moment to realize what just happened. When a judge ushered him to make a play, he revealed his hand and extended the hand.
[/p][nbsp]

Jack Bruun advances to the finals!

[p][nbsp]
France seems to be a welcome stage for the 15 year olds. Tudor Mitchell had been the man of the moment last year in Paris and Jack Bruun is now in a great position to even trump Mitchell’s performance that put him on the map of competitive Dueling. I’m thrilled to find out if the new Swedish superstar can overcome his opponent in the final and become our youngest YCS Winner ever!
