MBG Smashed LAIC Brazil 2019/20
This weekend saw Megan, Marley and Rohan head to Sao Paulo Brazil for the first major international of the season. All three did the team proud and managed to have gets runs in the event.
Day one saw a league challenge event put on for the juniors while day one masters was taking place. With over 20 juniors from all over the world taking part it was always going to be a tough event. Megan and Rohan both entered, Megan took 2nd place and Rohan 5th
Day two saw the main event start for juniors all 3 did the team proud. Marley opted to play Pidgeon’s, Megan Mew3 and Rohan Mally. Amazingly after 7 rounds of swiss both Marley and Megan made it into the top 8 cut.
Marley finished the swiss rounds seeded 1st (5-0-2) and Megan 8th (5-2-0). Rohan came close to sneaking into top 16 with a 3-3-1 record. A top 16 finish meant that Megan secured a paid trip to Australia for the next international of the season in February.
Sadly, though these standings meant that going into top8 Marley and Megan had to play each other for a place in the semi-finals. After a close match up Marley took the win 2-1 and moved into the semi-final on the final day of the event and maybe a place in the finals.
On finals day Marley managed to win his semi-final match and not only secure a place in the finals but a place in the EU top 4 alongside Megan claiming one of the 4 paid trips to Australia up for grabs in the EU.
On to the finals and sadly Marley couldn’t quite take the title, but he gave it his best.
Overall LAIC proved to be a great adventure for the team securing paid invites to Australia for two of them, a place in the finals for one and a top 8 finish for another.
And to top it all off PokeDad Ralph took the win in the master’s league challenge on day one claiming his first championship points of the season #ralphforworlds
