Top 32: Kim Just Jensen (DEN) vs. Daryl Campbell (UK)

[p]We’re reaching the final stages of theWCQ: European Championship and facing each other in the Top 32 are Denmark’s Kim Just Jensen and the UK’s Daryl Campbell. Jensen is once again packing his impressive Dragon Deck that can bring out powerful [redmd]'[s] in no time! Campbell on the other hand pilots a Tech Genus Deck through a field full of Plants. Which of the creative players would move on to the Top 16?

Jensen won the die roll and opted to go first. He kicked things off with [duality], adding [sarco] to his hand. Shuffling didn’t quite pay out as he activated the Spell next, banishing [future]. He [ns]ed [rai oh] and Set 2 Spells or Traps.
[/p][p]
Campbell had a [duality] of his own, however, it was an illegal activation as [rai oh] was on the field. He Set a monster and 2 Spells or Traps and passed.
[/p][p]
Jensen attacked into [prison]. He had another [duality] in [mp] 2, though, this time getting him [masked]. He Set a monster and play was back to Campbell.
[/p][p]
He brought out [rhino] and attacked into [masked]. Jensen [ss]ed another copy of [masked] to the field. [duality] was activated in [mp] 2, which got Campbell [mst] (he also revealed [em1] and another Trap). That concluded his turn.

[future] was added to Jensen’s hand. He didn’t have to think twice and activated the Spell, revealing [fhd] in his Extra Deck and sending 5 Dragons to his Graveyard, among them [redmd] and [wyvern].[br]
Next, he [ns]ed [exploder] and banished it to bring out [redmd]. [redmd] used its effect to return [wyvern] to the field. Jensen then sent [masked] into [rhino], [ss]ing [delta] from his Deck. Campbell picked the card up and read over its effect. [redmd] then attacked over [rhino], [wyvern] destroyed the Set [wanghu] in [def] and [delta] attacked directly. In [mp] 2, [delta] and [wyvern] were Tuned to [sdd]. Campbell searched his Deck during the End Phase and added [striker] to his hand.
[/p][p]
Play was back to Campbell and he took his time to understand the many effects of all the Dragons on the field and in Jensen’s Graveyard. He eventually opted to activate [mst] on [future]. [sdd] was Tributed to foil that plan. [striker] and [warwolf] were both [ss]ed next and Campbell also had [rhino] – all 3 were Tuned to [trishula]. The powerful Synchro Monster didn’t hit the field as [warning] negated its summon.[br]
[reborn] brought back [redmd] for Campbell and it was sent into Jensen’s copy of the monster. Campbell Set a Spell or Trap. During the End Phase, Jensen used the effects of 2 [wyvern]'[s] to bring back both [redmd]'[s] from his Graveyard. The following turn, he declared an attack and Campbell shuffled up his cards!

Kim Just Jensen unleashes the fury of the Dragons to claim the first Duel!

[nbsp][p]
Campbell took some time to exchange cards between his Main and Side Deck. Jensen seemed extremely confident and was done with Side Decking rather quickly. Both players shuffled each others Deck and we continued with the second Duel!
[/p][nbsp]

Could Daryl Campbell's Tech Genus monsters stand their ground against the Dragons?
Could Daryl Campbell's Tech Genus monsters stand their ground against the Dragons?

[nbsp][p]
[duality] revealed [rhino], [striker] and [reborn]. Surprisingly, Jensen wouldn’t pick the powerful Spell, adding [striker] to his hand. He [ns]ed [tengu] and Set a Spell or Trap.
[/p][p]
[opp] from Campbell was destroyed by Jensen’s [mst]. He Summoned [rai oh] and attacked over [tengu]. This got Campbell a second copy from his deck. Jensen Set 3 Spells or Traps and passed.
[/p][p]
Once again, Campbell tried to activate [duality], however, just like before, there was [rai oh] on the field. He then brought out [striker] and Tuned it with [tengu] to [brionac]. Jensen used [bth] to banish [brionac]. Campbell wanted to claim Priority, however, Jensen pointed out that he wasn’t able to as [tengu]'[s] effect would automatically “use up” his Priority. Campbell on the other hand made a case for himself that he had no more [tengu]'[s] in his Deck. The judge ruled that the effect would still activate, even if there were no targets for it left in the Deck. Therefore, the Synchro Monster was banished before Campbell got a chance to use its effect. The British Duelist Set 3 Spells or Traps and was done with his turn.
[/p][p]
Play was back to Jensen, who simply added 2 more Spells or Traps the following turn after attacking with [rai oh].
[/p][p]
Campbell now [ns]ed [warwolf]. [warning] was used to negate the Summon.
[/p][p]
[rai oh] attacked again, dealing another 1900 damage.
[/p][p]
Campbell wasn’t happy with his hand. He considered his next move and Set a card to each zone.
[/p][p]
Jensen attacked, his [rai oh] destroyed [crow].
[/p][p]
Campbell [ns]ed another [crow], which allowed him to activate his own [tt]. [duality] then revealed [sj], [prison] and [bom]. Campbell had to think for a second and picked the Counter Trap which he Set right away (no other cards in his hand anyway, so why bluff?).
[/p][nbsp]
Jensen's supply of monsters wouldn't run out!

Jensen found another monster in [masked]. He attacked with it and Campbell dropped to 4500.
[/p][p]
Yet another face-down Spell or Trap on Campbell’s following turn – he couldn’t find a monster!
[/p][p]
Jensen activated [sarco] to banish [future]. He attacked with [masked] and passed.
[/p][p]
Finally Campbell found a monster. He Set it and play was back to Jensen.
[/p][p]
[masked] was sent into [striker]. During the End Phase, Campbell searched his deck for [rhino] and added it to his hand.
[/p][p]
The following turn, he checked both Graveyards first. He considered his next move carefully, taking the time to go through all options available to him. He also checked his Extra Deck and eventually revealed [trunade]. Jensen was good with that or rather: He had no response.[br]
Campbell [ns]ed [rhino] and attacked over [masked]. This got Jensen [delta] from his Deck. Campbell Set 3 Spells or Traps and passed his turn.
[/p][nbsp]
Jensen had more than enough options to choose from!

[future] was added to Jensen’s hand, increasing his already impressive hand size. He Summoned [masked], but [bth] banished it. [mind] was then supposed to help him gain control over [rhino], however, [sj] negated the Spell.[br]
[future] was activated next, sending 2 [wyvern] and 3 [redmd] to Jensen’s Graveyard. That meant he had more than enough targets to choose for [reborn], but he seemed happy with [redmd]. He used the effect of the big Dragon to bring back [wyvern], adding yet more Dragons to his field![br]
[wyvern] and [delta] were Tuned to [scrap dragon] (after the effect of [delta] was used to increase [wyvern]'[s] Level by 1). Jensen Set a Spell or Trap and destroyed it for the effect of his Synchro Monster – this destroyed Campbell’s last Set card. With not enough Life Points left, the following attacks were enough for Jensen to win the Duel and the Match!
[/p][nbsp]

Kim Just Jensen advances to the Top 16!

[nbsp][p]
This seemed like an unfair fight; Jensen’s huge Dragons stomped over the Tech Genus monsters as if they weren’t more than a little nuisance. Could the Danish player continue to dominate opponents like that and make it all the way to the finals? We’ll know soon, just stay with us for 4 more rounds!
