Top 8: Peter Gross (Chaos Dragon) vs. Jean-Francois Celentano (Dark World)
[p]It’s time for Top 8! Austria’s Peter Gross has drifted under the radar so far, but his Chaos Dragon Deck is about to shows us all what it’s capable of! His opponent is France’s Jean-Francois Celentano, who’s Grapha’s remaining hope for another YCS title. Let’s see what happens![/p]
[div] Gross started with [tgu] and Summoned another copy from his Deck before [xyz]ing [zenmaines].
Celentano began with [upstart], drawing a card. He Set 2 [sts].
Gross Summoned [sangan] and Celentano played [tt], followed by [drain]. Zenmaines and [sangan] went down and Gross added [ryko] to his hand. Next came [recharge], which discarded Ryko and sent 2 cards to the Graveyard after he drew 2. He [ss]ed [darkflare] and discarded [eclipse] to banish [dad] and sent [redmd] to the Graveyard. He then Summoned not one, but TWO [lightpulsar][s] to obliterate his opponent in a flash!!
Gross takes command of Duel 1!
[div]Celentano opened Duel 2 with [upstart], followed by a Set monster and [st].
Gross started with [recharge], discarding Ryko to draw 2 cards and send 2 more to the Graveyard. He Summoned [tgu], then [sangan]. Gross declared an attack and [fool] was flipped over! In [mp2] he [xyz]ed [zenmaines] and Set a card .
Gross played [hole] and Zenmaines was safe. He Summoned [eclipse] and attacked with both monsters as his opponent drew 2 cards for [reckless]. Celentano Summoned [gorz] and a Token, the former destroyed in the End Phase by Zenmaines.
Celentano Set 2 [sts] and played [dragged]. That cost Gross his [crow] and Celentano’s [sillva]. Once it resolved Gross played [mst] to destroy another [dragged] and Celentano Summoned [sillva]. Celentano’s monsters both attacked Zenmaines, destroying it.
Gross activated [storm], and his opponent Chained [smog]. He targeted [redmd] and Gross Chained [mst] to protect it. [reborn] was played to Summon [redmd], followed by a Normal Summon of [eclipse]. All 3 monsters attacked (1 [eclipse] destroying itself in battle with the Token) and Gross banished [dad].
Celentano Summoned [snoww] and destroyed the remaining [eclipse], which banished Gross’s [redmd] from his Deck.
Gross used [redmd]’[s] effect to [ss] [eclipse], and took down [snoww] in battle before attacking directly.
Celentano played [gates], banished, [snoww], discarded [broww] and drew 2 cards. He Summoned another Snoww, took down Eclipse and Set a card.
Gross attacked with [redmd] and it was enough to win the Match!
Peter Gross progresses to Top 4!
