Lostov [3:1] Zalae @bo5
Lostov started the meetings against Zalae with unfortunate Paladin, who didn't help Aleksey in the previous game at all. In this meeting Fursov decided not to leave this deck for the final and set it into the battle. It worked well against enemy Hunter and the Russian took the lead — 1:0. In the next meeting the American kept playing Hunter, while Lostov tried Warlock. Good cards at the beginning let Zalae take the lead at the early stage of the game and not lose it till the end — 1:1.
Early Dr. Boom of Fursov's Druid allowed him to rapidly put a dot in the third round of the battle and take the lead again. In the fourth round the American made an interesting decision, having picked his Druid against Handlock of our player. However, the incorrectness of this situation was proved on the approache to the late stage of the game, when Zalae almost didn't have creatures in his hand. Lostov took the advantage of the situation and set many heavy cards up! The victory is on our player — 3:1.
The match for the second place in the group is to begin in a few minutes. More information is in our report.
