    • Shoutout to Riley for winning the PTQ!

    • Dave split in the finals of the Elite IQ on Sunday, was pretty lucky to do so.



  • Caleb Durward and Cody Lingelbach played on camera in the top 4 of the TCGPlayer 50K. Since the top 4 had split, they made a gentleman’s agreement to mulligan to 2 (or 4 for game 3).

    • While this is technically legal, do we feel like this made a mockery of the tournament and/or coverage? Caleb apologized to the community via Facebook, do we feel like this was necessary or are people making a big deal about nothing?
