IGN stays consistently bad by naming Duy "Hay" the winner of San Francisco:

Duy Hay, 18, from Fremont is wearing the same shirt that the Seattle winner had! Crazy!
No time for fact checking when you gotta get the article up 5 days later!
 
did anyone else notice that Grace Beck made top 16?????? didn't she get third at worlds last year?
3rd/4th, there was no consolation match played. There were accusations of Chris Tsai (who someone posted is her cousin, although that is just secondhand information and has no trustworthy source) giving her instructions of what to do in some of her early matches, but I have no idea how valid these claims were.

In other news, I chuckled at "Duy Hay".
