Thanks ;)

Also I did win with a new version of my old Deep Song Earth Meld deck that made the deck of the month here!

1. Sven Randy Rudstam (SWE) -- 3 VP -- Gangrel Tap&Bleed
2. Rodd Closson (USA) -- 2 VP => !Malk (3-4) DEM obf
2. Brad Cashdollar (USA) -- 0 VP => Toreador wall'n guns
2. Sarah Ritzius (USA) -- 0 VP !Malk (2-3) DEM OBF
2. Pascal Bertrand (FRA) -- 0 VP Ishtarri No Secrets

Seating:
Randy (1) => Rodd (2) => Pascal (4) => Sarah (5) => Brad (3)
(in parentheses: ranking before the finals. What matters is: Brad was after Rodd, and Randy was first).

My Ishtarri deck didn't last long and was ousted in ~40 minutes.
Sarah had a shot at Brad and tried to oust him, but she was 1 card low and couldn't get him. Rodd ousted her quickly.
It was down to Randy, Rodd, Brad.
Brad would only win if he gets 3 VPs.
Randy wins if he gets 2.
Rodd wins if he gets 3 or gets 2 and Randy doesn't get 2.

Rodd couldn't oust Brad, but he tried - Hagar Stone in torpor wasn't helping.
In the end, Randy got his window and lunged. Anneke block all actions, and sent Randy's dudes into torpor.

Rodd transfered out, giving 1 VP to Randy, expecting Brad to take the remaining 2.
But Brad couldn't win, and decided to king-make the non DEM deck, and transfered out.
Randy got 2 (3) VPs due to his preys transferring out when he had all his vampires in torpor and only Jake ready.
