First Match: Jay (Dudley/Chun Li) 1-2
BOOOOO!!! Why do i have to play Jay first?? It just made the tournament single elimination for me now. Game 1, he used dudley and i used yun and i won. which is like the first time that i’d won this particular matchup in a long time. then he switches to chun (wtf) and i just get raped bad. YEAH!! I LOVE LOSERS BRACKET!!!
Second Match: Gordon (Chun Li) 2-0
Ugh, another chun match. MY FAV!!! Anyways, this would have been a really tough match if Gordon had more experience playing 3S.
Third Match: Anthony (Ken/Hugo) 2-0
YEAH!!! I GOT FIRST GAME MERCY!!! Game 2, Anthony used hugo and it was another close match between us. sigh i wish gigas breaker stopped doing 80% to yun…
Fourth Match: Marvin (Chun Li/Ryu) 2-1
Ugh, going into this match i felt like i was out of the tournament already. Ever since marv got his low forward link into super down pat, i’ve never beaten his chun. Game 1 went to marv after i used a wrong poke while in genei jin and he supered me to oblivion. I was really thinking of using Urien SA3 for the second game but then i felt like if i were going to go down, might as well use a character that i’ve got good experience in. So i stuck with yun SA3 and somehow won the second game. Third game, he switched to ryu and it was a close match again. Came down to the wire but i won. YEA!!! I’d have to say that this was the best 3 games that was played in this tournament.
Fifth Match (Loser Semi-finals): Jon (Chun Li) 0-2
Chun is too good. What can i say?? Jumping straight roundhouse killed me and i ate a shitload of standing fierces trying to go in. Should have at least taken a game but oh well. Good games though.
So i end up with 5th which isn’t bad considering who i had to face and the fact that i had to fight 4 chuns out of 5 opponents. i think i’ll need to take a break from 3S for a while though. playing against that many chuns in a high level play setting is too much.
Props to Jay for running this tournament.
