so did whiteandgold show up? Type 2?

He did not. Type 2-2P was cancelled. As I said before, no one in my playgroup plays T2. I am still hopeful that someday Rob will drop the requirement of T2-2P at major tournaments, or at least for District level tournaments. I hate wasting my money on a category that never gets played down here.

It was a great tournament experience, which is normal for YMT's tourneys that I've ever attended.

TEAMS was really fun teaming up with Josh, who has been a kindred spirit of mine for years with his love of defense.  We had a lot of success with our decks, and all three games were really fun for both teams, with a lot of laughter from everyone.

T1-2p was also a really close event.  After the first round, I was in 2nd, but had a tough match which ended up dropping me to 4th.  After the third round I moved back up to 2nd, and had to play Josh Kopp for the championship.  I was blessed with the cards I needed to get the win in a game that was shorter than expected, but still contained some great battles.  In one battle:
- I played a battle winner
- Josh negated it
- I played another battle winner
- Josh negated it
- I looked over at my Unholy Writ
- Josh Destruction of Nehustan'd it before I could use it
- I played a card to draw some help, and played a final battle winner
THAT was FUN!

T1-mp was also very close.  It is typically my strongest event, but things didn't break my way this time.  I was able to slip into the championship round (in 3rd place at the time), but then couldn't finish things out, and ended up dropping down to 6th.  I was proud of my daughter Alecia for finishing in 4th in this event though doing better than her Dad :)

Sealed deck was an interesting event.  I pulled a Judas Iscariot and a couple of black brigade High Priests, which naturally my opponent wanted badly (since he had the crimson and black deck).  I was torn between keeping the UR simply for trade value, or handing it to my opponent for some really nice cards that would increase my chance of winning Sealed deck.  I decided to play for the win, and traded, hoping for the best.  It kind of worked.  I won all but one game (against Andrew Goeller), and took all the available LSs in that one game.  However, my opponent had severe LS drought and my defense eventually wore out, leading to a 5-3 loss, dropping me to 3rd in the event overall.  I was proud of Andrew for beating me, as he had actually called ahead of time as the event started.

It was also my daughter Katrina's first tournament at that level, and she had a great time.  She took some LSs, and had many fun games.  I am proud of her for having such a great attitude as she continues to learn this game :)

Answer 1:
     a (assuming you mean why didn't I invite you to the FL State tourney) - I didn't know for sure until the last couple days beforehand that I would be going to the FL State tourney.
     b (assuming you mean why haven't I invited you to the EC Regional tourney in 2 weeks) - You are TOTALLY invited, and I REALLY hope you will come.
     c (assuming that you mean why did I show up to the FL State tourney without an invite here on the boards) - I happened to be in FL at the time, and Tim graciously invited me in person

Answer 2:
I have no idea where Eric "AWOL" Largent is, but I sure would love it for him to show up at EC Regional and TN Nats as well :)

Good to see you here on the boards.  You've grown a lot as a player in the short time that I've known you, and I look forward to seeing how far you go with this great game.  Hopefully I'll get to see you at Nats next month :)
