The 2016 Super Sunday Series Championship may feature a $20,000 main event, but the weekend builds comradery, and everything outside the main event is a laid back opportunity to unwind and build upon new friendships.
Some people just can't resist celebrating a good two-for-one.
The Super Sunday Series Championship competitors got a tour of Wizards of the Coast Headquarters, taking them through the halls of where Magic has been made, played, and more.
Neal Oliver, Grand Prix Las Vegas 2013 winner, streamer, and elder dragon schemer.
The 10th anniversary sign is well over 10 years old at this point.
Visitors get a picture of the Jester's Cap from the front, while this photographer covers the back.
Dakkon Blackblade, from Legends, and a regular fixture of the Wizards lobby.
While Marshall Sutcliffe and Terry Chu, video producers this weekend, get everyone staged for their group photo with Mitzy, I couldn't resist sneaking in a shot.
This one's from Marshall. Can you name everyone in this shot?
After seven rounds of swiss and two playoff matches, the main event came down to only two: Thiago Rodrigues, a Pro Tour regular from Brazil and now France, and Samuel Black, Wisconsinite and Platinum Pro player.
In the end, after three very close games, Samuel Black stood triumphant, winning the 2016 Super Sunday Series Championship!
After the tournament, last year's champion Luis Salvatto had to get a photo with the new champ. Black was happy to oblige. Congratulations to both on their successes in this event, and to everyone for making it to this very special tournament.
