YCS Trial Final Feature Match: Thomas Cavaliere vs. Michel Co
17.04.2011 | 19:45
The Finals of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series’ Main Event is certainly the highlight of the weekend, however, we still got more in store for you! We welcomed Thomas Cavaliere and Michel Co to our Feature Match table, the two finalists of the YCS Trial tournament!
Cavaliere won the die roll and opted to go first.
He activated [necrov] and Set a Monster together with 2 Spell or Trap Cards.
Co simply Set a spell or trap.
Cavaliere flipped [gk com]. He attacked with it, Co activated [mst] to destroy Cavaliere’s Set [ro], the attack succeeded and [gorz] came down.
In [mp] 2, Cavaliere [ns]ed [gk des] and he Tributed [gk com] to get rid of [gorz]. He Set a spell or trap and ended.
Co simply Set 2 spells or traps.
Cavaliere had another face-down spell or trap of his own and his [gk des] was switched to [def].
Co took a little longer to consider his options, eventually, he activated [portal], followed it up with [united] and he then [ns]ed [hand]. [warning] foiled that plan, but Co wasn’t done just yet. He switched his [gorz] Token to [atk], destroying [gk des] in battle. He Set a fifth spell or trap and ended.
[stele] brought back [gk com] and [gk des]. [gk com] was Summoned and traded with the Token.
Co drew into [kizan]. He Summoned it to the field, adding counters to [united] and [portal]. He attacked directly, dealing 1800 points of damage.
[duality] revealed [hole], [7tools] and [recruiter]. Cavaliere picked the counter trap, he Summoned [gk des] to the field and attacked over [kizan]. He Set a spell or trap and passed.
[united] left the field so Co could draw a second card in his turn. He then used [sss] for [yaichi], Summoned it (intending to use it on [7tools] I presume), but Cavaliere had [sj]. Co passed without any other actions.
Cavaliere [ns]ed [gk com]. Both of his monsters attacked directly and both attacks succeeded. He Tributed [gk com] for the effect of [gk des], destroying [portal].
Co simply Set a monster.
After checking his Extra Deck, Cavaliere [ns]ed [gale]. [gk des] destroyed the Set [kagemusha] in battle and [gale] dealt 1300 damage with a direct attack. Both monsters were Tuned in [mp] 2 to [armor master].
Co Set a Monster Card.
Cavaliere Summoned [spy] and Co shuffled up his cards, he had nothing to stop the following attacks.
Thomas Cavaliere is only 1 Win away from a free trip to the next YCS!
The raw power of some Gravekeepers, juiced up by [necrov], was enough for Thomas Cavaliere to win the first Duel. Co needed to dig through his Side Deck to come up with some answers.
Co opted to go first; he Set a monster and 4 spells or traps and was done with his turn.
Cavaliere had [necrov] again, he Set a monster and 2 spells or traps and passed his turn.
Co flipped a [noc] he had Set in his Spell and Trap Card Zone on the first turn. He hit [spy] and all copies were stripped of Cavaliere’s Deck. Both players were allowed to check their opponent’s Decks, so they now knew which cards had been sided in.
[gk des] was Summoned, but met his master with [prison]. Co passed.
Cavaliere simply Set a monster.
Co used [sss] to search his deck for [kagemusha], adding it to his hand. He [ns]ed it, [fs]ed [kageki] and together they were Tuned to [shi en]!
[ro] dealt with that threat immediately! Play was back to Cavaliere after Co Set another spell or trap.
[duality] found him [kinetic]. He flipped his face-down monster, revealing it to be yet another [kinetic]. He attacked directly, Set a monster and passed.
Co performed no actions on his following turn.
Cavaliere [fs]ed [gk des] and attacked with both of his monsters. Co flipped [mf]! Cavaliere Set a monster and passed.
Nothing happened on the following turn.
Cavaliere flipped [kinetic] and attacked directly. He added a third face-down spell or trap.
Co played [forest] and passed.
Cavaliere now Summoned [recruiter]. He attacked with both of his monsters directly and passed his turn.
Co activated [portal] and Summoned [yaichi]. Cavaliere negated the Summon with [sj].
Cavaliere had a third [kinetic]! Co clearly wasn’t happy, checked his face-down cards and extended his hand!
Thomas Cavaliere is your YCS Trial Winner!
Asked about where he would like to fly to, Cavaliere immediately replied: “Spain! I love it!” However, given the fact that the European Championship will be held in Spain, it didn’t seem too likely that we would see a YCS there too soon. Cavaliere’s next best choice was Greece, as it’s another country known for its beautiful summers!
