BEST MOVE OF THE ROUND: Daigo Umehara vs. Eita (Akuma)
Eita lunch a Demon Flip, Daigo counter him with jump forward M-punch and then land with a Metsu Hadoken.


Kyabetsu (C. Viper) 0 - 3 Bonchan (Sagat)

Mago (Fei Long) 1 - 3 Kazunoko (Yun)
Kazunoko perform a lot of neutral jump, perhaps Mago worry for his dive kick, he play safe, couldn't gain any advantages from Kazunoko. Kazunoko lead by 2 - 0, Mago switch to rush down with many risky moves successfully get back a match, however, Kazunoko managed to counter Mago's strategy quickly.

Momochi (Cody) 0 - 3 YHC-Mochi (Dhalsim)
The ending of the 1st match was amazing by Mochi, he counter Momochi with Ultra 1 right after Momochi slide pass his fireball with EX Ruffian Kick. Momochi can hardly get 2 rounds in the whole game, Mochi control the match very well. The last round Mochi did a big comeback with his Ultra + Super Combo.

Daigo Umehara (Ryu) 3 - 1 Eita (Akuma)
Daigo played quite defensive, he did not deliver mush pressure even after knock down. Eita's initiate many different way to break in, at the beginning was very tough, late game Eita slowly got back a match. Many rounds are quite closed. Daigo managed to take it in the end. 2nd match, Daigo punish a Demon Flip with air M-punch and link to Ultra 1. 3rd match Eita counter an EX Hadoken with Ultra 2.

Kazunoko (Yun) 1 - 3 Haitani (Makoto)
Haitani brings a lot of challenge that stopped Kazunoko strategy, and Kazunoko miss many command grab given Haitani even more chances. Kazunoko get hit by random ultra twice. The last round Kazunoko fell into corner lets Haitani come back with very low HP.

Momochi (Cody) 3 - 1 Mago (Fei Long)
Mago did well on space control, option select. But after Mago lost a round in 2nd match, clearly see he has lost his steadiness too, he does lot of random jump in, random uppercut and wrong block are all giving Momochi advantage. The last round Mago missed uppercut twice without mirror to FADC.

Fuudo (Fei Long) 3 - 2 Kyabetsu (C. Viper)
Fuudo picked Ultra 1 (he usually pick Ultra 2 against Viper). A tough fight for both players. Overall the game control by Kyabetsu. Fuudo played defensively, he didn't initiate much attack, mostly break in from Kyabetsu's unsafe moves. Late game Fuudo read Kyabetsu very well, and Kyabetsu keep missing combo and given the game to Fuudo.

Kazunoko (Yun) 1 - 3 Bonchan (Sagat)
Lot of mind game here especially Kazunoko, he did many Lunge Punch -> uppercut, dive kick -> uppercut, wake up uppercut all those risky decision, but he didn't have much luck here giving Bonchan many open chances. Bonchan also counter lot of dive kicks with standing roundhouse and focus attack.

Momochi (Cody) 1 - 3 Kyabetsu (C. Viper)
Momochi get tricked by Kyabetsu's Thunder Knuckles again and again, most of the damage hit by this move. Kyabetsu manage to trap Momochi in bad position most of the time and he read him well. Not very hard match for Kyabetsu.

Mago (Fei Long) 0 - 3 Eita (Akuma)
Mago face many trouble to break in Eita, his reaction is not as good as usual because he miss several chances to punish Eita, also many wrong blocking on Eita's vortex was a main reason as well.

Daigo Umehara (Ryu) 3 - 1 Fuudo (Fei Long)
Daigo was locked in the corner, but Fuudo did not give much pressure, because Daigo has many tricky moves like throwing Hadoken in a short distance, walk up grab or frame trap that made Fuudo worry. Although Fuudo played well, but today he couldn't handle Daigo's yomi. The last match Daigo surprisingly switch to aggressive play style, that confused Fuudo make quite a lot of uppercut, Daigo managed to get his victory.
