Coverage of Grand Prix–Atlanta 2008

Posted in Event Coverage on November 15, 2008

684 players slaved for twelve hours today over hot cards to whittle the field down to a mere 64 players. The usual suspects have made their presence known again. Player of the Year contenders Tomoharu Saitou and Shuhei Nakamura justified their trips from Japan by both making Day 2. Luis Scott-Vargas managed to make it to the Saturday stage, though Tim Landale did not. Besting them all, however, is Marcio Carvalho from Portugal. He and two others sit alone at the perfect 9-0 mark. Hopefully their drafting chops are up to the challenge of six more rounds of Draft in order to make Top 8. Check back tomorrow for more exciting coverage of Grand Prix - Atlanta!
