We wouldn't even be at the convention center if not for Shane. Shane is super nervous but focused at the same time he is ready to play. Shane has prepared for this since he won MN States.
On a side note the Judge for his first round today will be sitting next to each player to ensure that the spirit of the game is carried out.
Specifics about each round: the round consists of 3 matches, it's best 2 out of 3 and the winner will move on to the next cut. Players are given 60 mins and then if time is called they play an additional 3 turns. The first match is about to begin now, so stay posted to see how Shane ends up.
