Terribly sorry for the late event summary. I’m a terrible procrastinator. Twelve people rocked out for the February monthly at our usual location, the Royal Oak.
I don’t remember much of what happened. It was probably cold.
A note-worthy jeer was newcomer Matt besting Ottawa veteran Patrick in Orb flips in the final round to avoid a match tie. Patrick will never let it down after missing his first (or second) orb flip versus Matt, who has a 10% hit rate on a good day.
The other story is the one of our two finalists: Joe and Jason. Joe had become intimately familiar with tie-breakers as a routine 2nd place finisher in the past years. Jason often sneaks in above X-X in larger events. Both had yet to win a monthly.
In the finals, where both players went in 3-0, it was Joe who was able to secure first place with his Mono Green horde versus Jason’s Mono Black deck. Congratulations Joe!
