So the final took place this Wednesday, and in order the finalists
were:

Michael "Anklebiter" McClellan, playing !Brujah bash-bleed, on the turn
of a card from;

John "Drummer" Keech, playing Stanislawa bleeds for buckets [the one he
used to win the Austrian qualifier at the last-but-one Euros];

Steve Read, playing Arika multi-actions;

Alex Ofthesecretsecondname, playing Ravnos dominate/chimerstry
stealth-bleed;

James "Legbiter" McClellan on the turn of a card from Carolyn Colwell,
playing weenie auspex guns.

Anklebiter went first and got 1 VP. So did Alex. I got the rest. It was
a TOUGH game, so now i will get some kip and give a proper report, erm,
soon. Also we are entertaining Jim Parker from Melbourne, who made the
pilgrimage up from Brighton where he is on a working holiday, and he
and John and Carolyn had a fun game once John was out.

After all the cider and vodka we made him drink it's hard to tell.
Horizontal Jim, perhaps.

The first Portsmouth Sanctioned Constructed Tournament since, erm, ages
ago took place in the Northcote Hotel, Francis Avenu, over 4
consecutive Wednesday nights, with the final on the 13th of July. The
following Methuselahs took part, and here were their scores at the end
of 3 rounds:

Michael "Anklebiter" McClellan GW2 VP6
John "Drummer" Keech GW2 VP6
Steve Read GW 1 VP 3
Alex GW0 VP2
James "Legbiter" McClellan GW0 VP1
Carolyn Colwell GW0 VP1
Garry Scarlett GW0 VP0
Richard Bennet GW0 VP0

With such a small tournament the multi-deck and multi-judge rules were
in force. Michael and John were really equal and so were Carolyn and
Legbiter, so cards were turned to determine who had precedence.

The order of play in the final was:
Michael [!Brujah bash-bleed, in fact the deck which won the last,
unsanctioned tournament here]
Alex [Ravnos dominate/chimerstry stealth-bleed]
John [Stanislawa Huge Bleeds, the deck with which he won the Austrian
Qualifier at the last-but-one Euros]
Legbiter [Weenie Auspex guns]
Steve [Arika multi-actions]

John fell first, unable to break through the weenie intercept wall and
relentlessly bled by Alex's Ravnos. Next was Steve, kicked in by combat
from Michael and intercept including the odd Eagle's Sight from me.
Then Alex [no minions]. Then it came down to a father-son duel which
fluctuated quite a bit but finally ended with Michael decked and the
Triumph of the Legbiter!

Here is the deck. It is not eligible for the TWDA because of the
multi-deck rules. But it is quite good. Probably needs to come down to
75 cards because when it fails it is usually the result of hand-jam. In
its original form it contained another Sudden Reversal, but functioned
on the night perfectly well when that card got accidentally stuck in
the box.
