Matt Hoyt Wins Worlds Away SCG IQPosted by Brad on Mar 31st, 2014 | 0 Comments
Matt Hoyt came dressed to kill — complete with tie and all his other finery — to the second Worlds Away Star City Games Invitational Qualifier on Sunday, March 30. A total of 54 players came from far and wide — Orangeville, Barrie, Newmarket, Mississauga, Waterloo — but it was local card slinger Matt Hoyt that emerged champion. After six rounds two Koros Reckoners, Steven Dunnet and Carter Barge, Austin Cortina, John O’Neill, Jason McCullough, a hungover Matt Pinsky, Matt Dundas, and Matt Hoyt made the cut to top eight. In the semifinals, Steven Dunnet defeated Austin Cortina and Matt Hoyt topped John O’Neill. In the final, Matt beat Steven to claim the crown; and with the win he’ll be playing in New Jersey! Big thanks to Judge Rick Miles for running a smooth, smooth tournament. Although it started a little late, the ninth and final round ended just past 7:30 p.m. In two months we’ll crank it up again for number three…see you then!

The sixth and final pre-release goes at 10 a.m. on Saturday with a $27 entry; there will be door and feature match prizes each round. In addition, my pre-release supplier is providing the store with a lovely old card to give away at random. The winner will also be entered into a draw for a Black Lotus. Prizes will be awarded to the top 16 players at the 10 a.m. pre-release. Total prize pool for all six pre-releases exceeds $900. Cheers all!
