One strange melee with a large PM, please.

This week melee had a strange bracket with a total of 14 entrants. Many players opted to use secondaries, which resulted in bracket shenanigans. It began in Winners R2 with Chevy deciding to play Fox dittos against Rizner. Chevy won game 1, but then lost when Rizner swapped to Kirby in game 2. Rizner decided to swap back to Fox for game 3 and Chevy mixed it up as well, changing to Bowser. It went to a last stock situation with Rizner winning the game to take the set 2-1. Rizner moved on to play Chief in Winner Semis, beating him 2-1 in Fox vs Sheik. Rizner continued on and met Bladewise in Winners Finals and promptly lost 0-3. On losers side, Semis was interesting with Chevy playing Fox and beating Chief’s Falcon in game 1; Chief swapping to Falco and beating Chevy’s Fox in game 2; Chevy swapping to Falco and dittoing Chief in game 3, but losing in a last stock situation. Chief took the set 2-1 against Chevy and moved on to play Rizner in Loser Finals. Rizner played Fox for the first 2 games and swapped to Jigglypuff in game 3, but to no avail. Chief took the runback with a clean 3-0. However, Bladewise was waiting in Grands and convincingly won the set 3-0.

Project M had a great turnout this week with 25 entrants. Winners side of bracket played out with no upsets, but Losers filled in the gap. In Losers R3, Howl beat Zygo 2-1 and then took the set against Shockbound, 2-1 as well, in Losers R4. On the same side of Losers, Blu2 upset Chief with a 2-1 victory and then beat Howl with a solid 2-0 in Losers R5. Blu2 moved on to play Punk Panda in quarters, but lost 0-2. Chevy beat Zeddy 2-0 in the same round, where he and Punk Panda then played in Losers Semis. Punk Panda, with a minor upset, beat Chevy 2-0. He moved on to play Aki in Losers Finals and lost 1-3. Aki then got his second shot against Bladewise for the night in Grands, but couldn’t clutch it out, losing 2-3. Congratulations to Bladewise at 1st, Aki at 2nd, and Punk Panda at 3rd.

This Thursday will be Melee and Project M singles. The event info can be found here.
