Top 4: Alpay Engin (Mermail) vs Matthew Mills (Fire Fist)

We’re back with the top four and back with Exeter’s Matthew Mills. The difference this time is that in a bid to get back to the UK in good time he booked a flight for Sunday evening. This means that he has barely an hour before he has to leave to catch his plane. This makes for an interesting scene at the feature match table where the Brit is desperate to get this over with quickly and move on! Alpay Engin will happily oblige if it means taking a quick victory in to the final. No doubt a ‘flurry of Special Summons’ would be involved so without further ado: the first semi-final!

Engin would start, dicsarding [a drag] to [ss] [teus] in def searching out [a megalo] and [a ocea]. He discarded the [a ocea] and [gunde] to [ss] [a megalo] fishing out a [a sphere] and getting [a ocea] back. He discarded to get out [a linde] and after some [a spirit] shenanigans he had a [lchain] on the field giving him [tidal]. [a gaios] and [mqangineer] joined the fray and with a set [st] Mills looked at his first hand and conceded immediately.

…well he wanted it to be quick!

Yep...that happened.

[h2]Alpay Engin… er… well… you read it![/h2]

Game two saw Mills go first with [df] and three set cards, Summoning [wolfbark]. Engin set two and lost the both in the End Phase to [mst] and [dust].

Mills Summoned [veiler] and [synch]ed [armades], attacking for 2300 on his next two turns as Engin passed.

And... er... that happened too!

Engin set a monster and had nothing else. [bor] was Summoned and attacked over the set Veiler before Engin conceded and we were in to game three already!

[h2]Game two is over just as quickly and we are in to game three[/h2]

Not even ten minutes in to the round and we were in to game three. This was lightning fast pace and both Duelists had no intentions of slowing down.

Engin started game three with [teus] in [def], discarding [a linde] and searching for [gunde]. His hand also contained [a ocea], [bth], [a linde] and [veiler]. He Summoned the [a ocea] and discarded [gunde] to search [sturge]. [mqangineer] hit the field and Engin passed after setting the Bottomless.

I figured I better use this player shot before the match was over!

[ff tenki] got [ff gorilla] for Mills. It sent Tenki to the Graveyard and [veiler] foiled it. Mills set three.

Engin Summoned [a linde] and attacked in to [mf]. Angineer detached to save itself and [sturge] and [a linde] bit the dust. [pike] came out from Abysslinde and discarded [gunde] to search [a mark] which was discarded for a revived [sturge] to get [a linde] back to hand and destroy a set [prison]. Gorilla went down in battle and in [mp2] Engin [xyz]ed [bahamut]. It was met by [fchain] when a material was detached.

Engin was reminded that he used his Normal Summon and ended.

Soon the Bahamut Shark would be unchained!

[pod] for Mills revealed [maxx], [df] and [ff tensu]. [df] was the pick and Mills’ Deck was shuffled. [tkr] was Summoned and Fissure was played. [tkr] attacked Angineer which saved itself and Mills ended.

[mst] took care of [fchain] and [tkr] was Banished in battle before Mills ate some damage from Angineer. In [mp2] [bahamut] Summoned [atrite] and Engin passed.

Mills set a [st] and passed, but it was a [debunk] and did nothing to stop the onslaught next turn!

[h2]Alpay Engin records a top four win in record time and proceeds to the final![/h2]
