Over the past few years, the Pokémon TCG has been growing tremendously. Without a doubt, events have been larger than ever! As a result, US Nationals turned into a three-day event and all Regional Championships turned into two-day events. In fact, many City Championships this season hit over 100 players in Masters. Many Tournament Organizers are wondering how to accommodate for this increase in attendance. If too many people show up, tournaments won’t finish until very late into the night. What is the solution?
Well, Jimmy Ballard, the Tournament Organizer for the Illinois State Championship, has decided to make his event the first two-day State Championship in the history of the Pokémon TCG! After the Swiss rounds on the first day, the Top 16 players will advance to the second day, where the champion will be crowned. Would you like to see two-day State Championships become mandatory, or is one day enough? Let us know what you think down in the comments!
