Congratulations to Merlin for winning YCS San Mateo with his Dragon Ruler deck! You can find his decklist here. And while you're at it, here's the official Champion source.

Continue reading for highlights of the Top Cut, Feature Matches, round-by-round Top Tables, and miscellaneous articles all put in one place for your convenience. Since Konami's coverage has been even slower than usual following an extended crash early in Day 2, I will be continuing to update this post as more information comes in. In fact, after the Top 8 was posted (late) on Sunday, they stopped updating the event even now (as I write this update, it is Monday afternoon).

Take note of how the link to the Champion source above is dated for October 8th, 2013. That's a full two days after the event ended. What the hell, Konami? If you're just going to be lazy about posting because you know that social media has already filled a lot of people in, then why not just go ahead and allow filming and other coverage at your events?

This event was also notable for the high number of reports of penalties levied against many notable players, including Adam Corn, Paul Cooper, and Ed Acepcion. Thanks for reading, and share this article with your dueling friends to keep them up to speed!
