A few surprises… no appearance from either Jackson Chen or Preston Eng. Theo caught Brian J coming out of the gate cold after the latter had a first-round bye, sending him to the losers’ bracket in his first match and went down fighting hard all along the way in general, sending both of the matches he lost the distance – to Drew-Dub and Brian J in a rematch in the losers’ bracket. Stilt retired his old hallmark Sentinel-A/Cable/BH team and brought a new oddball squad to play with, taking an undefeated streak all the way to the grand finals with it, including beating Drew-Dub’ Storm/Sent/Cable 3-0 in the winners’ final.
Drew-Dub tried to play the Cable/BH/Commando card on Brian J’s Sent/Cable/Commando in the losers’ final only to find it not working very well at all, went down 2-0 with that and couldn’t salvage a win with Storm/Sent/Cable either, coughing up the sweep. Stilt refused to let Theo and Drew-Dub’s failure to stop Brian J’s Sent/Cable/Commando with Cable/BH/Commando get to him, took that team, and managed to screw up badly enough as well to lose three games before winning the grand final 4-3.
Only twelve people total because of a lot of miscommunication as to who was responsible for announcing it and posting fliers for it… which basically didn’t ever get done, so the only people who showed up, did so by word-of-mouth.
