Lexx vs Sysy :
1.5 vs 3.5

Well, no surprise to find Alex in final. He's been pretty solid in every single-player tournament this year ! I was surprised not to play Europe.

1st game - Big Cities : Sea Oak Sea Ny vs [b]KC Hou LV Mia/b] 127 vs 131(my start)

Ideal combo to start with. Away from 6 black, Big tracks, big tix. We mostly play our game on our side of the map.
I don't bother blocking with the start.
He finds La Mia in a last turn draw and wins !

2nd game - Asia : Kransoyark Samarkand / Ulan Bator Valdivostok vs Omsk Astrakhan / Samarkand Mecca (?)/Moscow Ankara 94 vs 91 (his start)

We wait for a while before laying a track.
He opens 2 red in Hanoi, me 2 orange in Kathmandu. Bluff is necessary against him.
He takes 2 blue in Rawalpindi then 2 mountain in Karachi : either he locks me up, either he's trying to be flexible for Moscow Calcutta, either he has 3 small west tix.
I then claim 5 grey then 6 grey around Dihua with 5 black. I add the 4 white while he's working in the west, half connecting, half blocking.
I connect Vladivostok and Krasnoyark via Irkustk.

He has 3 tix + bonus while I'm 20 points up on the board, that's enough. Whew : 1-1

3rd game - USA : Port Nash/SF Atl (den paso) vs Port Phoe/ K Hou 121 vs 113 (my start)

Good tix for me.
I get 6 black fairly early, to which he answers with 6 green and 5 white.
I am a bit worried, I'm short on yellow, red and locos.
He connects in Paso and takes a blue open, I counter with 6 blue then 3 purple to SF. He goes with 6 yellow and 6 orange.
I connect my tickets without any problem, and launches the last turn with 6 grey. He has to connect to KC, no problem.

2-1

4th game - Swiss:Zur Country/Olten Schaffhausen/Luzern Vaduz/Zurich VaduZ vs Geneva bern ? and Country Ticket 90 vs 90 (his start)

Fairly unusual to keep 4, especially against a good blocker like Alex... but they pair pretty well, and I 'just' need 3 white and 4 black.

He takes 6 grey early, then 4 grey in Bern. I have a hard time finding my colors since locos are pouring blind in my hand. I finally get my 3rd white. He plays 1 blue in Solothurn to which I answer 3 grey. He blocks with 3 more blue in Interlaken.
Ok, his tickets are probably not that great.

With all my locos and awaiting a 4th black, I claim the 6 tunnel with purple. I got my 4 black fairly late, but he takes the 4 tunnel in Austria. I go to Vaduz and does not block anymore. I take more tunnels, but I make the wrong choice of giving away longest (seems like a well-known story).

In the end we tie !
Better outcome for him, since he had the start and that I can choose the next map.
Match point on my serve !

5th game - USA 1910 : Port Pitt/Chi NY/SLC KC vs LV Mia Hou Was 135 vs 102 (my start)

Nice, I can start with 3 tix. I take Chi Ny at around 25 cards, he opens with 6 red. Again, I choose not to block in Hou (he plays LV Mia earlier the same way), having 3 tix and the start.
I connect fairly easily my tickets with a nice cushion of 7 locos. He completes his tickets. He's in Washington, he has either Houston Washington or Washington Atlanta.

He has to draw for LA Atlanta and misses...

3.5 - 1.5

Better tix for me overall. The tie in Swiss was the key moment !
Lexx is getting more and more solid on every map, in every format! He'll grab for sure some nice wins in the future !

Thanks for match !
