Tournament – Downsmash
WR1 vs Doziam (Sheik) [2-0]
Notes: 4 stocked him game 1 I think and then 2 stocked him game 2 but missed a couple of rests and deep edgeguards I probably shouldn’t have done.
WR2 vs Blasko (Ice Climbers/Marth) [2-0]
Notes: Felt pretty confident going in but game 1 he was up a stock at one point. By playing safer I managed to bring it back and get a solid win. Then he went Marth (his secondary) and I think I 2 stocked him.
Winners Semis vs Thriles (Falcon) [0-3]
Notes: Stoked to finally play Thriles in bracket again since OCTOBER 2016! OMG I didn’t know it had been that long.
First game he steamrolled me. 2nd game I was up a stock at one point but he 1 stocked me. 3rd game he 1-2 stocked me.
This is most likely going to be the PR player I beat first and while I’m in with a chance (albeit highly unlikely) I think I need another 3-6 months of solid training to have an actual chance.
Loser’s Quarters vs Mungo (Falco) [2-0]
Notes: I played mungo on netplay on the 23/08/17 and went 3-8 against him so I knew I could easily lose.
First game went to last stock and second game I 2 stocked him by working out he puts himself in the corner and I just had to trap him and then punish him.
Loser’s Semi’s vs Blasko (Ice Climbers) [2-3]
Notes: I’m not going to lie, I had to tame my overconfidence going into this set after the 2-0 win against Blasko earlier. I knew I didn’t want to sleep on him so I stopped my mind going there.
He played really well and a lot of the stuff that used to work against him (eg. Pound) just wasn’t working at all. I think I need to approach this matchup a bit like how I approach Ganondorf. A lot of spaces bairs and just be patient and try not to get killed.
