SoCal Regionals Day 2

- Official site here.

Daigo Umehara
- He lost to Alex Valle in Winners Bracket, won Justin Wong (hard fight), came back from Losers to win SSF2 Turbo HD Remix.

- He won Alex Valle, lost to F. Champ in Winners, won Tokido (hard fight) in Losers, brought F. Champ down to Losers, but lost (in the last round possible) in the grand final of SSF4.

- He came back from Losers to win Zong One (hard fight) in BlazBlue grand final. I think his friends at KSK's game center are actually a lot better than him, and the commentators mentioned that he tried to chain a combo that is impossible! (and he didn't use his own stick, he borrowed from the audience.)

- He came back from Losers to win Rom (hard fight) in SF3: Third Strike grand final.

- He lost to Justin Wong in SSF2 Turbo HD Remix Losers top 8.

- He went rampage in 5 on 5 exhibition matches between international team and California All-star team. In the first set he won 2 and GamerBee took care the rest. In the second set, he OCV'd all of them, other players didn't have a chance to play.

- In the Losers, He won ClakeyD, won Justin Wong, but lost to Umehara in SSF4, got 3rd place. In the last round with ClakeyD, he finished with Raging Demon and went in front of the projector to have the "Ten" (Heaven) sign cast on his back, the crowd went crazy. (Many said the tournament was finished in that moment, and I can agree!)

- F. Champ revealed that he lost to Tokido in the money matches twice, 3-0 and 3-0. He said he would've lost if they met in the final.

The tournament is a huge success. It's not a perfect one, but still success. The international players who know each other were invited, it's a good thing because they'll not feel left out. They had a warm welcome. Thanking the Japanese re-streamer was a nice move, too. (The Japanese viewers were impressed by what Valle said because of the translation.) The English commentators are good (Ultra David, James Chen, and Seth Killian). Etc.

Umehara was great. Hard fights, good results. He needs a counter-Dhalsim character, though.

Tokido is MVP, unexpectedly. Hard fights, good results.
