This past weekend saw the unfolding of the first ever Magic the Gathering Player’s Championship. All original concerns about the tournament structure and what it was replacing flew out the window as players enjoyed the spectacle of back-to-back matches between some of the best players in the game. This three day event featured Modern, M13 Draft and Cube Draft formats, testing a wide range of player skill, experience and practice.

In the end, Yuuya Watanabe triumphed over Shouta Yasooka 3-2 in a Japanese-dominated finals match. Although Shouta could not break through the Jund shard, the other players and the Twitterverse had his back, congratulating him on an insane run, winning two more pro points total than Watanabe, despite losing in the finals.
