Some pictures from PT San Diego

After scrubbing out of the PTQ this morning (0-2 drop, making it a particularly brief experience) I got myself credentialed as press and zipped around taking pictures of the main event. Many of these will be going up on ChannelFireball as soon as my illustrious editor can manage it – he’s on a flight to Alaska right now to go take down a PTQ (seriously).
You can get the full photoset here. Here are some fun highlights:
Sort of like a guardian angel
Tomoharu Saitou watches over 2005 World Champion Katsuhiro Mori’s shoulder. Mori’s opponent called a judge on him about five minutes later after Katsuhiro spent several minutes staring at his cards, trying to figure out how not to lose.
The Mystic and her favorite accessory
Stoneforge Mystic is the MVP of the Standard portion of this tournament, seeking out Basilisk Collars and Behemoth Sledges.
Dead Reckoning and Death’s Shadow. It’s a combo!
