Nice wins today for Kuz, JJ, Flavs, and Mono. I'm particularly stoked for Kuz. To come back and beat Nails 75 in the third? That wouldn't have happened a month ago.
Even though I missed all the action I do know that Stuttgart, one of my favorite tourneys, is turning out to be a pretty rad tournament this year. Dina's looking strong and we're getting really competitive matches each round, with the top players eventually coming out on top, which is a...nice change.
