2001 Barcelona Masters Coverage

Today, Ben Rubin made himself a piece of Magic History, becoming the first player to win two Masters Series events. The last obstacle on his way was Jay Elarar, who played a deck that many thought would win him the title. Ben was not to be denied. Wearing his trademark Superman T-shirt, he took the match in two games.
