If you missed it, Grand Prix Charlotte was the largest Magic: The Gathering tournament ever held, breaking all the records by a big margin.
There were 2,693 players registered to play in the Grand Prix and many more in the room for side events.
Day 1 was 9 rounds of Sealed; Day 2 had 2 more rounds of Sealed and then two drafts. After the Top 8, there were a full 20 rounds of Gatecrash Limited played to determine the final winner.
That winner? The winner of the largest ever Grand Prix?
Congratulations to him and the rest of the Top 8, including: Antonino Baldasari, Aaron Lewis, Richard Nguyen, Ben Stark, Gerard Fabiano, Patrick Sullivan, and Ben Isgur.
