[/p][p]
[b]Which Deck did you play today and why?[/b] Plant Synchro – I started playing it before the Wrold Championship and I’ve always been happy with its performance. I just continued to play it as it’s the most stable Deck in my opinion.
[/p][p]

[b]What’s been your biggest accomplishment so far?[/b] I won an iPod at some regional tournaments. I always came close to making day 2 or Tops, but so far I never had lady luck on my side. This weekend everything seems to go my way!
[/p][p]
[b]Which Deck did you play today and why?[/b] Dino Rabbit – I really like [rabbit]. You can apply lots of pressure from early on and make sure it never dies down.
[/p][p]
[b]What are you most looking forward to in 2012?[/b] YCS Leipzig is basically just around the corner. It’s a 3 hour drive for us at the most and it’s gonna be a great event!

[/p][p]
[b]Which Deck did you play today and why?[/b] Dino Rabbit. I’ve been playing Lightsworns the last format, but I consider them a fun Deck. Despite making it to the Tops, I want to win today, so I picked the best Deck in my opinion.
[/p][p]
[b]What are you most looking forward to in 2012?[/b] I hope to do well at our Nationals again. That would be great!

[p][b]Name:[/b] Ping Xiao
[/p][p]
[b]Age:[/b] 23
[/p][p]
[b]Where are you from?[/b] Bristol, UK
[/p][p]
[b]What’s been your biggest accomplishment so far?[/b] This is my biggest success so far. I came in 11th in Nationals a couple of years back and I’m happy that I advanced to the Top 8 this time!
[/p][p]
[b]Which Deck did you play today and why?[/b] Dino Rabbit. I think it’s got a great match-up against Plants. You just need to push and back it up with [dolkka] or [laggia] and there’s next to nothing they can do!
[/p][p]
[b]What are you most looking forward to in 2012?[/b] The new list of forbidden and restricted cards as well as new sets. Anything that shakes up the game and makes sure that it stays dynamic is great in my opinion. I’ve played 10 different Decks the past year and I really enjoyed all the change!

The first French Duelist in the Top 8: Adrien Dudek

The first French Duelist in the Top 8: Adrien Dudek


[nbsp]
[p][b]Name:[/b] Adrien Dudek
[/p][p]
[b]Age:[/b] 19
[/p][p]
[b]Where are you from?[/b] St. Etienne, France
[/p][p]
[b]What’s been your biggest accomplishment so far?[/b] This event by far!
[/p][p]
[b]Which Deck did you play today and why?[/b] Dino Rabbit. This Deck is extremely consistent in my opinion and the Xyz Monsters can win you games without problems. Jurassic Gaiba is a great addition to the Deck for Plant matches or if you’re opponent is also running Dinos!
[/p][p]
[b]What are you most looking forward to in 2012?[/b] I can’t wait for some new cards to show up to shake up the format!

[p][b]Name:[/b] Lars Junginger
[/p][p]
[b]Age:[/b] 16
[/p][p]
[b]Where are you from?[/b] Vogt, Germany
[/p][p]
[b]What’s been your biggest accomplishment so far?[/b] Today’s by far my biggest accomplishment.
[/p][p]
[b]Which Deck did you play today and why?[/b] Plant Synchro with [treeborn]. I built it myself, I think it can easily summon [ggg] and it’s extremely hard for my opponents to get rid of it. This gives me time to set up my combos!
[/p][p]
[b]What are you most looking forward to in 2012?[/b] I’ll take a holiday! When it comes to Yu-Gi-Oh!, that’s certainly the German National Championship 2012!

[b]Age:[/b] 20
[/p][p]
[b]Where are you from?[/b] Rotterdam, Holland
[/p][p]
[b]What’s been your biggest accomplishment so far?[/b] Top 8 Worlds, Winning YCS Paris, Finalist wcq: European Championship 2010!
[/p][p]
[b]Which Deck did you play today and why?[/b] Plant Synchro, because I think it’s still the best Deck. It offers you so many options, it can come back from a clumsy opening hand and therefore it doesn’t have to deal with the same problems that Dino Rabbit has to face.
[/p][p]
[b]What are you most looking forward to in 2012?[/b] More European Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series!
