There were 12 players who made it to the event, and about 4 players who wanted to make it but were sidelined by life. It was good to have a number of the Chippendale Boys out west to play such as Claudio, Nick, Michael Tomkins and Leon.

I was impressed by the relatively low turnout of traditional qualifying sleaze decks (there were 3 S&B decks and 1 Dominate Weenie out of the 12). We saw some more amusing decks such as Michael Bailey's "It's a Wizard 'Arry" featuring a large number of Mage Allies and Erichtho, an Anarch Secession-Chameleon deck and an !Toreador Anarch Swarm-Bleeder.

Quotable Quotes (unattributed at the request of a few of the makers of the quotes...)

"That thing bleeds more than Michael J Fox masturbating with a cheese-grater" (about the Weenie-Dominate deck)
"What?! I only bled him twice" (the Ashheap contained Govern the Unaligned + 2x Conditioning)
"[To player 1] What's he doing to you?! Govern down?... [To player 1's predator] Not to diss your game or anything..."
"I hate you with every fibre of my being... I know its a lot of fibres"

After two rounds, the standings before the final were:

Name GW VPs TPs Ranking
Nick Miller 1 5 114 1
Martin Hall 1 5 108 2
Michael Tomkins 1 3.5 96 3
Martin Collins 1 3 88 4
Claudio Falcao 0 3.5 114 5
Todd Hassmann 0 1 66 6
Paul Azzapardi 0 1 66 6
Will Allison 0 0.5 54 8
James Bonham 0 0 46 9
Leon Tranter 0 0 40 10
Brendan Healy 0 0 36 11
Mike Bailey 0 0 36 11

With that, Nick, Martin, Michael T, Marty Collins and Claudio made it to the finals. The seating of the finals was:

Martin Hall > Michael Tomkins > Claudio Falcao > Nick Miller > Martin Collins

Martin Hall: Malk 94
Michael Tomkins: "All your dudes belong to me" Anarch Secession + Chameleon + Banishment
Claudio Falcao: A !Tre Wall (Bowl, Sniper Rifle, Eagle Sights... you know the type)
Nick Miller: A vote-wall featuring Orlando Oriundus
Martin Collins: No Secrets from the Osebo ("No Secrets from Cesewayo"-style deck)

Michael Tomkins was quickly pommeled by the Malk 94 deck of Martin Hall, it did not help that Jann Berger failed to complete an Anarch Secession without being blocked. That basically crippled Michael as he couldn't use Chameleon on his Predator and try to slow him down. Michael Tomkins was ousted fairly early while Claudio, Nick and Martin Collins tooled up. At this point the table started to stabilise itself with both Claudio and Martin Collins blocking their respective preys.
A few turns later, Martin Collins was able to drop a copy of Dragonbound while Martin Hall had at least two of his Malks in torpor from being blocked by Martin C and Claudio. Claudio blocked Nick's cross-table rescues and Martin Collins kept on knocking down Martin Hall's minions until Martin was ousted.
The final then came closer and closer to timing out as the three decks effectively stalemated themselves. Nick had 8 votes, but couldn't not successfully get an action off. Claudio had 5 pool, but Martin Collins wasn't able to apply enough forward pressure or enough combat to knock Claudio's minions into torpor. Claudio wasn't able to provide enough forward pressure to remove Nick's 12 pool. Martin Collins himself had around 25 pool from consistent bloating through a Hunting Ground and Vessel.
Claudio had the last turn of the final and the table timed out with the following standings:
Rank Name Prelim GWs Prelim VPs Final VPs TPs
1 Martin Collins 1 3 1.5 88
2 Michael Tomkins 1 3.5 0 96
2 Claudio Falcao 0 3.5 0.5 114
2 Nick Miller 1 5 0.5 114
2 Martin Hall 1 5 1 108
6 Todd Hassmann 0 1 66
6 Paul Azzapardi 0 1 66

8 Will Allison 0 0.5 54
9 James Bonham 0 0 46
10 Leon Tranter 0 0 40
11 Brendan Healy 0 0 36
11 Mike Bailey 0 0 36
