*Think of this like the world series of golf, it combines brawl with poker and levels the playing feild. This will be a trial tournament so bear with us. Each player that enters will start with 2000 chips. They will then be assigned to a 4 person group. Players will have to post blinds, and then a computer program will pick a stage and assign each person a character. Players may then bet any number of chips that they will win the given situation. any player who wants to play in that match will have to call or raise the bet. When a player looses all their chips they are eliminated from the WSOB. Example. TGPAdmin,Javier,Wako, and pav are assigned to a table. The program picks battlefeild as the stage and assigns wako-diddy kong, javier G&W, Pav-Gannon, and TGP Admin pikachu. Wako raises the match to 500 chips, Admin, and Pav fold, and javier calls. Javi and Wako would then play the match of G&W vs Diddy on battlefield for the pot. I think this could be a lot of fun and a new way to enjoy the game.

After Brawl singles there will be a $5 pokemon d/p tournament
(rules are as follows)

All battles will be 6 vs 6 lvl100

Sleep Clause- Only one pokemon may be put to sleep at a time by the opponent.Example
I put your pokemon to sleep using hypnosis and you switch I can no longer use hypnosis til the other one wakes up, But you can put yourself to sleep Using rest or otherwise.

Species clause- no two of the same pokemon on a team

OHKO clause- One hit ko moves are banned (fissure, horn drill, sheer cold, and guillotine)

evasion clause- bans any move that increases your pokemon’s evasion ex. Double team or Minimize


Deoxys, Groudon, Ho-oh, Kyogre, Latias, Latios, Lugia, Mew, Mewtwo, Rayquaza, Wobbuffet, Wynaut, Darkrai, Shaymin, and Arceus

we will have enough stations so that we can start melee while brawl is still going on.

I hope to see alot of people at this.


SC4 is awesome I can’t wait to test out my taki at this, I know we have alot coming for VF5 and SC4!

Do we register via a post, or do we just show up and pay. Also, do we have to come day 1 and register, or can we just show up the day of the tourney and register?


You only have to come for the day the events you are playing in are on and you sign up and pay at the event. We like it when people post in this thread so we have an idea of who is coming. People can register for a single tournament up to 20 mins before it starts.

Feel free to AIM me Giants625 for details


Thanks for answering, and I only have one more question. Do you have to bring your own controller? I would like to try my hand at SCIV and VF5, but I don’t own a next gen system, and therefore I don’t have controllers.
Hopefully I can get some friends and come up, this sounds like its going to be a blast.

we have plenty of controllers but if u prefer to use an arcade stick u will need to bring one for the 360

Where are all the street fighter and GG gear players, we have a great local scene for SC4 and VF5, and we have about 6-8 SF3 players

hope to see some people from these boards so our guys have some new comp

This is this weekend!!!

We have a great local scene coming out for this hopefully a few of you come and join us!
