London PTQ-Columbus

July 17, 1999 - Columbus, OH

Aaron Lundy

It was a fairly small tournament for a Pro Tour qualifier with only 83 people in attendance. Head judgeing the tournament was Darth May from Pittsburg and, despite the low turnout there were a few big name players there like Mark Globus, Jason Opalka, and Eric Taylor.

Everything ran smoothly through the tournament with the exception of a few problems with out dated organizers software which caused a couple minor problems. Things were worked out and twelve players recieved their registered deck back, the rest were past out. A couple of warnings were handed out for miss registered decks and all were given time to biuld thier decks.

No major problems ocurred until late in the swiss rounds when a player cycled an Ostrasize and three turns later his opponent noticed that it didn't have cycling. He was given a warning and a game loss for drawing extra cards.

No decks were checked after initional regisrtation which may be a factor in the low amount of problems that occurred but all in all it was a well run tournament thaks to the people at professional events service and judging staff.
