24 year-old from Italy wins 2-day event at one of Europe’s most well-known Dueling venues.
More than 1100 Duelists from all over Europe made their way to Bochum to become the latest Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series winner. Europe’s strongest Duelists were all competing at the city’s RuhrCongress venue on April 25th/26th but only one would become champion. After multiple rounds of high-level play over two days, Italy’s Luca Chetoni was declared the victorious Duelist, becoming the latest player to triumph on the international stage.
Chetoni and his Nekroz Deck squared off against Germany’s Eugen Heidt in an enthralling Final Match on the Sunday evening, broadcast worldwide via yugioh-card.com. and twitch.tv. Although Heidt, the current European Champion, showed tremendous skill throughout the weekend, besting several opponents, his Nekroz Deck was ultimately defeated by Chetoni’s, as Mind Crush was played to win the final Duel of the event.
Chetoni is now the latest Duelist to call himself the victor of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG’s travelling event series. In addition to claiming the title of YCS winner, he takes home a prize package that included a Notebook PC, exclusive YCS Prize Card and paid travel and accommodation to the 2015 WCQ: European Championship.
For those who did not participate in the main tournament there were several other events to take part in throughout the weekend, including tournaments to win giant Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG cards, Game Mats and other popular prizes, such as additional copies of the YCS Prize Card Ascension Sky Dragon.
