I have hope left in a couple of tournies, but this might just have been my very last tournament victory on CC. Huge props to Buda for rescuing it and updating it like a pro.
About 40-50 games in, I had taken a nice lead at about 58-60% of the games won. Managed to keep that lead, though the middle phase of the finals went about 50/50. With ~50 games to go, I had a decent lead of about 12-14 games. I never once felt secure though, and the last two sets were a complete nightmare. All credit in the world to Theldin who completely dominated me in the later stage. No matter what I did, he always seemed to outplay me on a large majority of the maps. Considering how we were trending, I really wouldn't have wanted it to go to overtime, and as Theldin pointed out - it came down to the very last game (Conquer Rome).
All in all, this is one of my proudest tournament wins.
I'm going to look at some stats now, will post if I find something interesting.
