Live Coverage of StarCityGames.com Open Series: Los Angeles
StarCityGames.com Event Coverage
In contrast to the Standard day of competition the StarCityGames.com Legacy Open in Los Angeles truly was open: no deck posted more than a 10% threshold of the field! Early on the question was whether or not Life from the Loam-based decks would be as successful as they had been in St. Louis a few weeks prior. As the Top 8 rolled around the answer was a resounding NO!
Instead Dredge Threshold White Weenie and even Enchantress made the top tables. Lou Christopher running his innovative Enchantress list managed to take it all down. He agreed to a split with Shane Downey in the Finals that allowed him to take the title as well as a generous portion of the cash prize.
Congratulations to Lou Christopher and Luis Scott-Vargas the StarCityGames.com Open Series Los Angeles Champions!
LSV regarded as one of the better players in the world was a name any opponent could tremble at being paired against but Sherwin Pu gave no indication he was intimidated by his more experienced Semifinals opponent.
