Hello AJ here, running this tournament was quite the learning experience. I would safely say I underestimated the amount of time required/stress from running a tournament. I will do a lot of stuff different next time. Overall it was a lot of fun though. Hopefully I will be able to do it again next summer. Im very thankful to all the people that came out, 20 is not too bad of a turnout for how sketchy that warehouse looked. Ill add shoutouts later, I want to get this out as fast as possible so shibby will get off my ass.

Late Shutouts

Trail for coming and taking all of our money
Sounvabeach for helping me immensely and for lots of whining about being on blake's side of the bracket
Blake for holding down the west side
zbet for frequently yelling "give him the stif tip" everytime I play
@ BertEast BertEast ,our set in bracket was alot of fun. Your a damn good puff, MM next time I see you?
Oak for getting salty. Let the salt flow through your veins miles
Gengar for receiving the stif tip in pools
Labo for getting third in his pool and inverse shoutout for not showing up until like 1 pm and nearly screwing me
Squad and Squid, did you guys ever finish that Iron Man?
Baba and Psyther for giving me wins in bracket ;), but in all seriousness I am very happy to host the first tournament you've ever been to. Find me at Big House 4 we should play some friendlies.

Anyways, thanks to everyone for an awesome event! Glad I got to go to one, it is a rare occurrence when I can

Yo. Here are my saltouts.

I'm done losing to you all. Especially SonuvaBeach (Edit: meaning I am winning from now on). In the words of Mickey Redmond, "Look out".

Those are all I can think of. Sorry if I forgot you.

Shoutouts:

Stif: It was a fun, small-sized local tournament. We really don't get tourneys like these anymore in the midwest.
Rodohk: Thanks for being a good teams partner. We've got potential.
Shibby: 2-2. I'll be sure to break the tie in my favor next time we meet. ;)
NJA: Thanks for the extensive friendlies and Peach matchup experience. Close set in bracket.
Trail: Still good as always. MB-Smash says hi.
Cam: Good friendlies. Midland's stepping it up.
Oak: Our set could've gone either way. Too close.
Sonuvabeach: Congrats for taking a dollar from me again. Hope you place high at the next one!
Toileto: Y'all are lazy Johnlords when I can finally go to a tournament, even though I'm one of you.

I'll be practicing for real this time. Until next time, MI.

Great job hosting Stif, this was really chill, next time lets fire up that grill.

Josh: GGs in finals, you have what it takes to start playing at that next level, for you I think it's all mentality and patience that you need to continue to develop.

Blake: What can I say man, you are insanely good for the short time-span that you've been playing seriously. You can definitely become one of the best in the Midwest if you continue to put in the work and have fun competing.

NJA: Good **** in teams, you have gotten a lot better since the last time we played. You were pretty much carrying me with that peach, we will have to team at the next tournament we are at.

Shibby: Man, that doc has made tremendous strides. Now you just need to stay patient and pick your openings more wisely. We will have to play more the next time we are at the same tourney so that we can continue to level you up. You are close man, you just have to have confidence.

Louis: Good seeing you man, thanks for making the drive up here.

Sawyer, Anthony, Etc.: Cool seeing all you god damn kids again, you guys have all improved a lot and you will be ****ting on me in this game soon enough.

I'm at work or I'd make a complete list of shoutouts, all and all good games and I look forward to playing all of you again.

@ Stif Stif Just noticed the MM from your shoutouts. If I have money next time we meet, you can damn well bet(heh) it will happen. I'm so poor.
