Tournament in Lodi

The tournament for Super Street Fighter 4 wasn't too big. Only about 14 people entered. I used Dan in our team tournament. We did alright. I had won Super Street Fighter 4 singles and split the pot with my buddy. I got 7th in Marvel even though I'm just awful at that game. I played Tinh, who is really strong at Marvel (coming from MvC2), and he zoned me out completely. I couldn't touch him at all. Overall, playing Dan in the team tournament reminded me of playing patient when its important. Dan can't do much to get in so it's important to really work for your damage, play patient and use your leads. I thought it was interesting how well we did. Anyway, I'll let you guys know what tournament we'll be going to next. It's been quite slow, but it seems like ReveLAtions will be our next destination. I'll let you guys know! :)

About 100 games against John Choi

John invited us to his apartment to play some casuals after the tournament. I played John for a good 3 hours. I lost 2 to 1 in about 100 games. I crouch teched too much and had problems with spacing still. His footsies and mind games were very strong. It felt like I was doing the same thing over and over while he changed his game just about every game. His small adjustments throughout the sets made that much of a difference. If I'm not correct, I believe what he was doing was called adapting. That is something I struggle with a lot.

Just a few notes for you guys to read. I apologize for the lack of updates. I'm running through quite a few financial complications at the moment. But I have hope that everything will be okay! :)
