Age: 22 Occupation: Job seeker Hometown: Etten-Leur, Netherlands What were the best cards in your Sealed Decks?
My favorite combo was Premature Burial with Evocator Chevalier! I also had Pot of Greed and Magician of Faith and they were rather useful.
Did you prefer your Day 1 Sealed pool or the Sealed pool you received today?
I preferred yesterday's Sealed Pool. I think they were both really good, but yesterday's Deck was more in line with my personal play style.
What was your best play all weekend?
Premature Burial and Evocator Chevalier won me a couple of games. Oh, and I won a few games with Monster Reborn on Dark Valkyria as well. Other than that, nothing really stood out.
Famous last words:
Shout-out to my friends and my girlfriend who are supporting me!

Age: 24 Occupation: Student Hometown: Cologne, Germany What were the best cards in your Sealed Deck?
Ape Fighter worked overtime this weekend!
Did you prefer your Day 1 Sealed pool or the Sealed pool you received today?
The pool I received today is definitely better! I only drew once today while I took a loss yesterday (and drew once as well).
What was your best play all weekend?
I was able to get a Truckroid up to 7000 one game, I vividly remember that!
Famous last words:
I want to thank my friends for testing with me and greet my girlfriend!

Age: 21 Occupation: Student Hometown: Vienna, Austria What were the best cards in your Sealed Deck?
There were few cards that really stood out for me; I had a lot of cool combos like Beast King Barbaros that I could later bring back with Premature Burial.
Did you prefer your Day 1 Sealed pool or the Sealed pool you received today?
I prefer today's pool a lot. This is in stark contrast to the fact that I performed much better yesterday, but I'm certain it's because I didn't draw into the right cards at the right moment so far.
What was your best play all weekend?
I sent Tasuke Knight to my Graveyard with Card Trooper with only 350 Life Points left. Its allowed me to see another turn in which I was able to win the game!
Famous last words:
I want to send some greetings to Tolga, Ricarda (thank you for joining me) and all my friends!

Age: 20 Occupation: Student Hometown: Milan, Italy What were the best cards in your Sealed Deck?
Prideful Roar was my favorite card this weekend. However, Memory of an Adversary won me most of my games yesterday.
Did you prefer your Day 1 Sealed pool or the Sealed pool you received today?
I think my pool today is much better. While I'm positive that I could have advanced to the Top 8 with yesterday's pool as well, I have much more synergies going with today's Deck.
What was your best play all weekend?
I Tributed 2 monsters to Summon Photon Wyvern and cleared my opponent's field this way!

Age: 17 Occupation: Pupil Hometown: Luxembourg What were the best cards in your Sealed Deck?
Zoma the Spirit was a card that won me a couple of games, so I'll go with him!
Did you prefer your Day 1 Sealed pool or the Sealed pool you received today?
The day 2 Sealed Pool is way better. I'm really happy that I was able to end up on a 5 - 1 - 1 record yesterday and secured my spot for today's competition.
What was your best play all weekend?
I'm running Mausoleum of the Emperor together with 4 Tribute Monsters: 2 Darklord Zerato, White Night Dragon and Photon Wyvern. That made the difference in quite a few games.
Famous last words:
I want to greet all my friends, especially Dennis, Vlad, Greg, Pierrot, Jean, Albert and Luca!

Age: 17 Occupation: Student Hometown: Gießen, Germany What were the best cards in your Sealed Deck?
Monster Reborn and Magical Arm Shield were the best cards in my personal opinion.
Did you prefer your Day 1 Sealed pool or the Sealed pool you received today?
I like today's pool better. While I had more cards that could be activated in the Damage Step yesterday, the overall power Level of the cards in my pool today is higher.
What was your best play all weekend?
Most of the moves are rather straight-forward, it's more about when you need to Summon which monster and when not to do so. That's the most important part of Sealed in my personal opinion, so no particular move stood out.
Famous last words:
I want to greet my friends and especially Michel because he grabbed my Deck after I left my table and forgot about it since I was too excited!

 

Europe's most successful Duelist Michel Grüner is also among our final 8!

Age: 25 Occupation: Student Hometown: Munich, Germany What were the best cards in your Sealed Deck?
Cyber Jar, Beast King Barbaros and Magical Arm Shield!
Did you prefer your Day 1 Sealed pool or the Sealed pool you received today?
They were completely different, so they are hard to compare. I think today's pool is slightly worse, but I still like it more.
What was your best play all weekend?
Memory of an Adversary on Cyber Valley (he used Full-Force Strike on it), I then got it back later, I attacked with one of my monsters, used Enemy Controller afterwards to Tribute it and get his most powerful monster, attacked with it as well and in Main Phase 2, I drew 2 cards. I basically only played with his cards!
Famous last words:
I want to greet my friends that helped me prepare for this event, Joshua because he greeted me and my girlfriend!

Age: 20 Occupation: Student Hometown: Berlin, Germany What were the best cards in your Sealed Deck?
Monster Reborn, Darklord Desire, Pot of Greed and Bull Blader were my top cards!
Did you prefer your Day 1 Sealed pool or the Sealed pool you received today?
Today's pool is slightly better. I opened more forbidden cards.
What was your best play all weekend?
My opponent attacked with Bull Blader and I used Metal Reflect Slime to get rid of both of his monsters without taking any damage!

I would like to thank my friends that helped me prepare for this event!
