MLG Washington 2010 runner-up Kyeong Hyun 'SeleCT' Ryoo also found himself in a 1-0 deficit at the start of his WBR2 match, but with strong zerg playing he was able to win game 2 and 3 against a rather unknown player.
Defending champion Gregory 'IdrA' Fields cruised to 2-0 victories in both of his matches, as did several other top contenders. Jonathan 'KiWiKaKi' Garneau, Giacomo 'Socke' Thüs, Chia Yang 'Sen' Cheng, Jian Carlo Joan Morayra 'Fenix' Alejo, Jonathan 'Jinro' Walsh and Dario 'TLO' Wünsch all made it through the first day without any problems.
In Halo:Reach we also saw the first Winner Bracket rounds going down without any surprises. European flagship Power Gaming got a BYE in the 1st round, but later in Round 2 showed their skills against "Oddsquad". They easily passed them with 2:0.
Number 1 seed Heaven and Earth , winner of the National Championship 2009 and 100,000$, cruised easily through the first rounds with a BYE in the 1st round and 2:0ing "SickLicious" also from the US.
The Halo 3 competition didn't start so far. Day 1 started of with the All-Star Classic match, East Coast against West Coast. Representing the East Coast was the killer ensemble of Pistola, OGRE 2, Victory X, ElamiteWarrior, Enable, Heinz, Flamesword, Best Man, and coach Bravo. The West Coast were no other in then featuring FearItSelf, Cloud, Roy, Neighbor, Snipedown, Lunchbox, Hysteria, Walshy and coach Towey.
The East Coast ended up dominating the West Coast in a 5–2 thriller. This win now puts the East Coast at five wins to the West Coast’s one.
Be sure to tune in tomorrow when the actual Halo 3 competition of the tournament begins.
