Simply Smashing came and went and it was a massive success!
After 4 pools with top 4 of each pool advancing to the final bracket we had a stacked Top 16 bracket in both games!
People traveled from as far south as the Keys to as North as Gainesville to come to this tournament!
There where 69 unique smashers between Melee and Project M, with 47 entrants for Melee and 59 entrants for PM it was pretty packed at Versus Gaming Center.

And of course with 3 sponsorships on the line for each game everyone brought their 'A' game!

Colbol, Plup, and Wizzrobe snatched the Sponsorships for Melee! Shutting out South Florida and once again showing the Central Florida dominance over Melee

And even though Wizzrobe won first place he couldn't get two sponsorships and so the three PM sponsorships went to NickRiddle, Seibrik, and Porkchop! All three representing well for South Florida

This tournament was pretty great IMO. I was really hoping for round-robin pools because I think I would've done a bit better if it was such. Being wrecked on stream was probably the highlight of this tournament from my perspective.

Shoutouts to the following...
Lambchops/Beer Man: For wrecking me on stream and encouraging me to keep playing and getting better.
Jags: For being a cool dude. Also my best training partner in years.
The organizers: For making all this possible.

(I can't attend any of the smashing Wednesdays because I have school then). I can't wait until next tourney! =D

I was so close to getting sponsored, idk I guess people thought I'd be upset, but I guess I just accepted the loss that I was going to lose to Nick Riddle. I will get sponsored when Smash 4 comes out for sure.

NickRiddle's a hard opponent, that's for sure. I'll be sure to give him my own salty runback when he comes to my home turf, though. Congrats to those sponsored, I'll see y'all at Big House.
