Back From EVO!

Well i got back on Monday and really it was an awesome weekend. I got to hang out with a lot of good friends, and i actually played in my first major! This was my 2nd time going to EVO but first time competing in a major ever. Despite the lack of practice ive had with ssf4 as of late i did really well. I was in Pool A (you can read the article below to see who's in it, too many to list) but i was 1 win away and lost in losers final against John Choi. John Choi and Daigo Umehara were the 2 that made it out of my pool. Pretty good imo, first major, top 3 in pools (just outside of top 32). I wish i got to play on the big stage but the judges/people who ran the pool didn't really know who i was so they just kept me at the stations. not being active or being on stream for who knows how long lead to me not being on the big stage hah. Regardless it was a lot of fun and i am hoping to do better next year. To be honest i was thinking about not really playing ssf4 serious anymore or play it casually at all but after this, after EVO it had me thinking. What if i did practice? prepare for this major instead of knowing i was going 2 hours before registration closed and practiced in training mode for a few days. I think im going to stick around and see what happens. Hopefully enter more tournaments as they come instead of what i did this year, entered about 5 tournies or w/e. I would like to thank Kara and Cesar especially for this! if it wasn't for these two i wouldn't have been at EVO and i probably would've quit.

EVO 2k10!!

Well Evo is coming up real fast! This year should be fun, seems like more international players are coming out for this than usual and its going to be my first real major tourney. I'm not prepared at all really because it was so last minute but im there to do my best and enjoy the weekend. I'm in Pool A which is 9am but im getting to vegas around 7-8am that friday. My pool has a good amount of known players but i dont think it would be considered the death pool as some would say. my pool consist of DS (not sure who he is but it seems familiar), John Choi, ClakeyD, Keno, UTJ, LPN, Magus1234, Liston, iNerd(i think hes a chun player), and daigo. those are the ones that would stand out from my pool so far. I am definitely not a favorite, pretty much the underdog because i havent been active in the community or playing that much lately but i am pretty confident and imo i think i have a chance to make it out but it will be a lot of work. though i wont be able to get any games of practice or even get to drop off my stuff in the hotel, im going straight to the ball room and playing in my pool with all my stuff with me. Lots of pools with a lot of good players. some pools to watch out for (or to spectate) would be pool H - with chris hu,inthul,wolfkrone,combo jack, mike watson, ryan hart. pool I - Ryder, Justin Wong, DaggerG, pool N - Marn, Ed Ma, Mr.KOF, Rico Suave. juicebox is in pool G with fubarduck, flash metroid, and Dr.Chaos. I think my pool would be fun to watch but overall all the pools in general seem like they are going to have a lot of good matches going on. im stoked and i just hope im not super tired when i have to play.
