Scymrian > @PumpedAaron 3:0 (Aaron forfeit before game 4)
Setsuki > Troq
Grave > Grave
Valerie > Valerie
I considered leading Onimaru as I knew my opponent likes Troq, but I decided to stick with my strategy so far this tournament of never leading Onimaru or Zane into potential counterpicks, and just led with Setsuki as I have been - she’s swingy enough to steal bad matchups easily. Game 1, I managed to get a ton of aces, and won by hitting with AA like three times while also blocking AA once.
Game 2, TPOS became known for both players as soon as I hit 46 HP, and we each played it multiple times, but it never hit - I was lucky to draw both jokers early, so I successfully gold bursted TPOS dodge followups twice. I tried to press my hand advantage and ultimately did win, but Aaron really made me work for it. I was never comfortable.
Game 3, I think Aaron must have started with a bad hand, because he very early hit K into one bold stroke, with no follow up. I was able to dance around him and didn’t play into two blue burst attempts, and this time I did press the hand advantage for all it was worth. Aaron forfeit the right to play game 4 and gave me the set.
Thank you for the games, PumpedAaron! I know you were discouraged about not getting on the board, but you definitely made me sweat for the first two!

I geniunely thought that Ivan had won four at this point, and left as I was being summoned by family. Ivan generously offered to play the last game tomorrow, but I’m not going to be available, and I think that since I walked away he frankly deserves the advancement, so I’m forfeiting the right to play the final game. Thanks for the good games, Ivan!
Loser’s Finals: ArthurWynne vs @Ivan
This was a wild ride!
Final result: 4-3 to ArthurWynne
I’ll have to sit down and do a thorough breakdown of this set, but I don’t have time to do it justice now, so you’ll have to make do with the scorecard.
Results for the two games
Thanks for the matchs mate ! I’ll remember these for years ! The last one wasn’t representative, I did tons of errors (tired ?) and won because you drew no joker. the ven/degrey and the grave/arg were my favourite, I was almost shacking of stress ahah
I definitely have to train my midori and my persephone for further tournaments, i still question a lot about how should i behave in the most common MUs
thanks to everyone for having participated to this event and especially to @vengefulpickle , whose work for organizating tourneys and datawork helped me to figure out how yomi is a deep and awesome game !
Premature post there? That’s not quite right.
yeah, I have to watch the games again to remember the MUs
EDIT: Disregard, not only do I choke in Yomi, I also suffer from short-term memory loss apparently.
There’s a reason I don’t do game-by-game breakdowns of what happened in my reports like some people do, I’ve forgotten most of it by the end and I don’t want to watch the entire thing again in-game just to remind myself!
If I forget to take notes as I play, I forget what the matchups were! It’s been multiple times where I have to wrestle with the replay feature just to figure out what the results were in order to report!
I assume that you’re on the left and Arthur is on the right in these results?
