Robbie’s YCS Orlando Report for 2011!

On May 27, 2011, in Yu-Gi-Oh! Articles, by Robbie Kohl

Our journey through YCS Orlando begins! Enjoy the ride through this tournament report!

Thursday: Me and Conrad left from Fort Wayne at 10 PM Wens night to meet up with our friends in Illinois. After we met them at about 3 AM we were on our way to Orlando. We got held up in Nashville because Alex had a random Kidney stone. Sometimes life makes me wonder if I should even travel to these things lol. After about three hours in the hospital he gets the clearance to go with his nice bag of meds. We got back on our journey and went through the flat wonderland that is known as Georgia after about 8 hours we got to Florida and its night time flatness. We arrived at the Gaylord about 1 AM Friday morning.

Friday: After getting to the hotel we slept till about 2 PM in the afternoon. Best relaxation time I’ve had in a very long time! We got pre-registered for the event and I got to meet some of my subscribers and some parents. Was a pretty cool treat honestly to meet the parents of the children who enjoy my videos. I also got to pick up a worlds mat from someone on pojo. Was cool to meet you as well sir! I also got to watch Dragon Duelist Girl play a bit and dueled Kevin Silva and lost ;). After pre-registration we went out to eat with pozjoker and his friends from Cali at Applebee’s. I am not eating Applebee’s in Florida again because I didn’t feel the best Saturday morning because of it. After dinner me and Jake hung in the pool till we got kicked out then it was off to bed!

Saturday: I got to walk around the event for awhile till I realized the pants I had were ripped. Had to change and when I returned Adric High was wondering around. The surprises you get at these types of events lol. After a few trades the player meeting kicked off and the tournament itself was underway!

Round 1: Gadget Stun Vs Six Samurai 0-1
I ended up eating a lot of the ground during this match. Juan was a really cool player but it sucks when your opponent has Trunade and Dark hole to kill your set up. He eventually beat me in with shien and I had no choice but to scoop them up. (Day 2 he didn’t make it to because his car got towed. Things happen though)

Round 2: Gadget Stun Vs Dragons 1-1
This round I got to sit next to someone who was playing the dark gadget deck. I was watching him more then I cared about my opponent this round. I ended up making easy work of the Dragons with dyna and doomcaliber game 1. Game 2 dust tornados did most of the work while the gadgets streamed me pluses. I talked to the gadget player afterwords and discussed tengu with him. It’s a good card but its not something all that amazing in gadgets unless your Thunderpants.

Round 3: Gadget Stun Vs Six Samurai 2-1
I’m not sure what this guy was doing. But I’m pretty sure he had no idea how six samurai were suppose to work. I watched him misplay about 7 times and each one of them would have hurt me a lot. I suppose I cannot complain all that much since he may not have had the total nuts on me and was scared. Overall, it was a very easy win for me though!

Round 4 Gadget Stun Vs Counter Fairy 3-1
This was a match up I was not prepared for in the least. Counter fairy vs stun is a coin toss game. I won the dice roll so I got to establish first. Game was a breeze since he couldn’t set up his counter traps. Game 2 he got to go first with bountiful but I one for one’ed all the cards with my smashes. I heard smashing ground in the embodiment of evil in the stun match up ;)!

Round 5 Gadget Stun Vs Vayu Turbo 4-1
The goodness just keeps on coming my way. I was content on not playing the mainstream meta all day but I didn’t think I would play one of Japans best decks. Game 1 he opened knight and buried the vayu. I ended up ramming with green and setting the world. Soon after that there was nothing he could do. Game 2 I got him to lose to his own imperial iron wall he sided in because my removal was really destroying him game 1. I like when you side in your own worst enemy ;)!

Round 6 Gadget Stun Vs Machina Stun 5-1
I got to play against another gadget deck this round. I actually do enjoy playing against other gadget decks hehe. He opened kind of nutty and held his fortresses till he had no choice to use them. Oppression shut them down and soon after we both were in top decking mode. I topped the better out before he did and I won game 1. Game 2 I sided in my dust tornados and rugs and went to town shutting him down. Sorry but this game was a lot of fun!

Round 7 Gadget Stun Vs Six Samurai 5-2
Once again I had to play against the herp derp that is six samurai. He opened triple double edged and he had a shien running turn 1. How do you think I felt!? Game 2 he has back row and a kizan and I have a trago. I summon gadget and he solemns. If I would have taken the kizan and not worried about summoning gadget I would have won but the correct play loses out to the misplay. I got destroyed shortly after!

Round 8 Gadget Sun Vs Six Samurai 6-2
What a surprise I got to play against the Six samurai once again!!! Game 1 he was poker facing me because he was very serious about wanting to make day 2. I beat him and while were side decking I looked at him and said I wonder if you have a soul and he started laughing. Game 2 began and he was all talkative and cheerful while I got destroyed by six samurais opening shien with no outs for it! Game 3 he has shien and chimeratech and set backrow. I summon green search. I smash ground he negates. I monster reborn his kagemusha and tune into brionac and bounce his 2 dudes and win from there. This match was probably my favorite of Saturday because this guy turned out to be really cool.

After the event was over on Saturday we hurried up and got burger king and ralley’s cause I wanted some hot dogs. We got back and chilled in the pool till we got kicked out and I passed out getting ready for day 2!

Sunday: I woke up at 8:30 and got the best shower of the weekend. A lot of my friends were cheering me on and I really wanted to see what would happen if I tried to top.

Round 9 Gadget Stun Vs Plants 7-2
Finally I got to play my best match up. I opened dyna and protection and there was nothing he could do but let it go down-hill from there. Game 2 he made stardust and dropped tengu on me and there ws no way for me to recover. Game 3 I opened gorz, dark hole, gadget, and 2 solemns. I won this game super easily since I had outs to everything I tried to do.

Round 10 Gadget stun Vs GK Geartown 7-3
This was my biggest let down of the weekend. I played against a super weird deck and that’s what wins most of the time. Game 1 I lagged and didn’t see much other then some spies. When I sided for game 2 I crossed out a spy and verified what he was playing and I was scared. Seeing that knowledge won me game 2 because I saw what I had to do. Game 3 I opened 6 of my 17 monsters opening hand. What a big shocker!? This is the primary reason I lose and he topped his other field spell for game. Atleast they were single monsters and not just double gadgets.
After the final loss I walked around and talked to some more of my subscribers. I got some really cool custom tokens from one of them in a trade. I also got to meet kyo from pojo and we took this awesome photo!

Bad Fates

Me and Kyo at Orlando!

The Tokens

Awesome custom tokens!

That’s all the cool things I got on this Sunday. We ended up going back to the room and passing out for awhile then going swimming and eating dinner. Sorry pozjoker but we were so tired!!!

Monday: Conrad woke us all up at 9 AM and made us get on the road home. He ended up taking most of the drive home which was 12 hours. I took the final 4 hours from Illinois to home I’m glad I have friends I can call at all hours of the day to keep me awake. I finally got home and passed out from the weekend of being tired!
