Regionals Team Standings

An experiment is brewing in San Diego. For the first time at US Nationals, Sideboard is tracking the results of each of the Regionals teams that were fielded from around the country. Most Regionals earn eight players a berth at Nationals and after three days of competition the team with the highest four performances will be awarded the title of Nationals Team Champions and all the players on that team will win a box of Scourge.

Obviously there are some wrinkles. Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico all field two winners. They have been combined as one team. There are also three US Military regionals that field two players each—they have also been combined to form one team. If this experiment is deemed successful there is a chance it will be continued next year—here and abroad—with the possibility of bigger prizes looming on the horizon.

6-0 performances by Mike McGee and James Cross buoyed the Mid-Atlantic and Mountain teams to the top of the standings. The most notable players on Regionals teams were Peter Szigeti (SoCal), Nate Heiss (Ohio), Peter Guevin (New England), Tony Tsai (Mid Atl)and Steven Shears (So Cal).
