lettucemode 4-3 neigutten
I won the first two games. Then neigutten won the next two, one of which involved a brutal extended lockdown/checkmate. Then I won one, then he won one, and we steeled ourselves for the final game. I got off to a very good life lead early and then attached two aces. neigutten bravely took one on the chin, and then managed to stay alive for several more turns (bringing me down to under 30hp, which is a scary amount of life against Persephone) before I managed to pull off a dodge into the second attached ace for the win.
Man, it’s hard to come back from a bad start against Persephone, at least as Onimaru it seems. Getting hit with early As or playing my lone reversal at the wrong time is pretty difficult to return from. Not that I wish to take anything away from neigutten’s play with that comment, he played very well and honestly the set could have been his if one or two more 50/50s went his way.
WP neigutten, thanks again for the games and see you around.
