epic TWELVE
« on: February 16, 2014, 22:55:27 PM »
Another update!

This weekend was epic twelve, which was in Kettering. There was a £500 first prize, and I knew there were some good players attending so I wasn't expecting too much. The weekend was planned out as two daily tournaments, with the top four from each daily tournament going into Sunday afternoons grand final

Turned up early on Saturday morning hoping for the best. The first daily tournament was done in 2 groups, with the top four in each group going to a mini tournament. I had a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in my group with put me 4th, with one of my wins being a 6-2 win live on stream (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jaZqgt5wsA&feature=youtu.be&a). I went into the knockouts facing the guy who came 1st in the other group, so I knew it would be a tough game to get into the top 4

These games were BO3 now, and I faced Vasi first, one of the best Romanian players. I lost the first 6-1 but managed to win the 2nd on penalties after drawing 1-1. The third game was streamed, which was a really close game (http://www.twitch.tv/sweetpatchtv/b/503514333, 5hrs 14mins) which I somehow won with 10 men on penalties. I then won the next round and was through to the final, which I sadly lost.

For Sunday I didn't play, as I was already through, so there was a lot of sitting around waiting until the grand final. The grand final format was double elimination BO3, and I faced Tom Stokes in my first game. He's one of the best UK players and it showed as he beat me 6-3 and 4-2. I went into the losers brackets where I faced off against Vasi again, but this time he beat me 5-2 and 2-1, meaning I finished 7/8th

Overall it was a great weekend, hopefully I can improve on that at next event (probably i51 if multiplay sort themselves out)
