Hello SixPrizes readers! I am pleased to bring you my first article here at 6P. My name is Connor Finton. I am a professional player for Team ARG based in Atlanta, Georgia. My accomplishments include 1st place at the 2016 Kansas City Regional Championships, 2nd place at the 2018 Anaheim Regional Championships, and a Top 4 finish at the 2017 Latin America International Championships.
The North American circuit has been full of Expanded events the past few months, and the upcoming Hartford Regional Championships, May 3–5, is following in that trend. The format for this tournament is especially interesting because of how the meta has shifted from one Regionals to the next. With Hartford being the fourth Expanded Regionals in the BLW–TEU format, the meta has started to centralize on just a few decks, namely Archie’s Blastoise, ZoroGarb, and Pikarom. With that said, there are always surprises, as we saw this past weekend in Daytona Beach.
In this article I will be bringing you guys a short recap of what we saw happen in Daytona, as well as my top decks going into Hartford. To finish off, I’ll give you my top pick for the Europe International Championships this weekend.
