BEST MOVE OF THE ROUND: Daigo Umehara (Ryu) vs. YHC-Mochi (Dhalsim)
Daigo focus dash forward standing fierce from Mochi, he walks up frame trap with Shoryuken and FADC into Metsu Hadoken.


Uryo (Sakura) 3 - 0 Eita (Akuma)
Uryo is dominating, although Eita did many smooth combo, however Uryo managed to escape from many terrible situations. Uryo also has great read in this game, he jump over Eita's fireball in the right time several times, and even caught his teleport.

Momochi (Cody) 0 - 3 Haitani (Makoto)
Haitani catch every minor chances well, most of his hits were just in the right range. Momochi is very defensive (or scary?), most of he time he wait for Haitani attack, but he only managed to get 1 round is every match. The last round Haitani use Ultra 1 after an FADC, his guest got him a comeback and win the game.

Kazunoko (Yun) 3 - 0 Fuudo (Fei Long)
The dive kicks from Kazunoko are mostly perfect, he did great at range control and option select. Fuudo get hit by random Ultra 1 twice. Both players keep switching play style from time to time, in the end Fuudo lost in mind game. Many rounds are quite close.

Kazunoko (Yun) 3 - 0 Eita (Akuma)
Eita didn't have much problem in a range, but once Kazunoko break in, he's become a training object. Overall Eita has very little chance to fight back, he just keep trying to escape and throwing fireball. Kazunoko control the game and delivering great pressure.

Uryo (Sakura) 3 - 1 Kyabetsu (C. Viper)
It's surprise that Kyabetsu's Viper couldn't do much thing in the whole game. Uryo totally control the game, frame trap, option select are all working well. But the 3rd match Uryo accidently fell into corner so he's lost a match. After that, Uryo just simply get back everything. Note: Uryo s a Viper player too.

Sako (Ibuki) 1 - 3 Haitani (Makoto)
This fight is definitely crazy. Both players push each other into corner with every tactic they can do. Most all wins were done by locking opponents at the corner. Sako has the lead in many rounds, however, Haitani just managed to comeback. Sako hit by Ultra 1 twice after he missed an uppercut. 3rd match, Haitani focus Sako's Hein and dash forward to the spot where Sako is landing with punish.

Daigo Umehara (Ryu) 2 - 3 Momochi (Cody)
Daigo has a strong and steady start. He keeps the space very well, standing without blocking, because just out of the range that Momochi can hit. Momochi then change to more on yomi game, with smooth combo performance, he come back from 0 - 2. Daigo hit by random Ultra 2 twice.

Uryo (Sakura) 2 - 3 Fuudo (Fei Long)
Uryo did a lot of successful frame traps, he lead 2 matches ahead. Lately Fuudo managed to break his strategy, locking Uryo in the corner most of the time and catch up to 2 - 2. The last round both players play very careful, but there was a flaw from Uryo which given Fuudo a chance to stun him and eventually beat him.

Sako (Ibuki) 3 - 2 YHC-Mochi (Dhalsim)
Sako has a good start, Mochi total confused by his vortex. Late in the game Mochi able to catch Sako's style, without giving much chances to Sako, Mochi hardly managed to catch up from 0 - 2. Mochi hit Sako with Lv3 focus attack twice. Last match last round, Sako did a great come back with his tricky damage reset tactic with Kasumi Gake and combo into Ultra 2.

Momochi (Cody) 2 - 3 Kazunoko (Yun)
Kazunoko did too much wake up uppercut, which worked good at the start, later has become opportunity for Momochi. 3rd match Kazunoko combo into Genei Jin but just stand still after activated. Kazunoko then played less aggressive, he successfully block many EX Zone Knuckles forcing Momochi burn the mirrors to cancel them. He lock Momochi in the corner most of the time and eventually defeated Momochi.

Daigo Umehara (Ryu) 1 - 3 YHC-Mochi (Dhalsim)
1st match, Mochi EX fireball followed by an ultra and then jump forward, Daigo counter with air M-punch into Ultra 1. Mochi definitely control the whole game, keeping the distance he wants, even Daigo has break in, he still managed to escape.
