SoulWind vs Icemaster - SoulWind had a solid Week 1 in both prep and plays, but things went wrong Week 2. His slow Yveltal was caught off guard by BeamBeam Lunala, and his SD SR Groudon being shut down by Lunala + Xatu made things worse. Still gotta give credit for keeping the only hopes he had alive with his plays, and somehow getting in his opp's head and winning with Calyrex. Icemaster on the other hand hasn't had a great time, with a very narrow Week 1 win and an arguably narrow Week 2 loss. His good plays only seem to surface when he's in absolute need of them as seen in both his games. I think SoulWind has had a more consistent showing so far and unless Ice can get significant advantage in the builder, I think SoulWind is favored.

M Dragon vs Manaphy - My conspiracy theory is that M Dragon saw Fc vs Manaphy, saw how useless Fc's Zygarde and Groudon were + how weak he seemed to be vs opposing Zygarde, so he stole the team and slapped Xerneas and Magnezone over the 2 grounds. He made nice plays to exploit the fear of Magnezone in the back and put Xerneas to good use vs Icemaster. The crit he got vs Eternatus helped, but with Thunder Wave Dusk Mane + Specs Xerneas + Scarf Darmanitan, it's not like he got bailed out of a losing position. His Week 1 was also great just like SoulWind. Manaphy--Stubborn stuck to his BlisWole after a bad Week 1 and was able to take down Fc with relative ease by just never letting up the pressure. M Dragon's streak of decent prep + good plays make him seem the more likely one to win, but Manaphy can obviously switch things up.

London Beats vs byronthewellwell - After a close game week 1, byron couldn't put up as much resistance vs Poek after a decent start to the game. Groudon vs Landorus trade didn't work out, and after both Yveltals were knocked and rocks went up, Poek was able to use his Calyrex more effectively than byron. That said, I have no idea about London Beats, so this can be a good opportunity for the mainer to have good prep + make solid plays and get back his confidence.

Poek vs Exiline - Both players came back from an L in Week 1 to a convincing W in Week 2, though Exiline's Week 1 is something that deserves to be put in a museum. Poek was maybe caught off guard as he let his dangerous Rayquaza get knocked very early, after which the rest of his team didn't have the tools for a comeback barring a miracle despite his best efforts. But be bounced back Week 2 in great form, as he never got into trouble of losing barring a crit from Calyrex. Exiline turned his frown from Week 1 upside down by bringing 0 water resists yet playing so well that the opposing Kyogre only clicked attacks on turns 95 and 96 (game ended on turn 97). He also played the mindgames vs Rayquaza well, and after catching it with a Foul Play, was sitting in a great position. All his mons put in work in the match (Dusk Mane just contributing as a flying resist) so he must be proud of his prep. I'll give the edge to Poek purely for intuition (Poek can maybe punish Exiline's plays just like M Dragon did).

TrueNora vs 64 Squares - I don't know how much credit for Nora's Week 1 win goes to Nora rather than to Poek, but he did keep his advantage in that game and won it without much hassle. Week 2 was not so fun, as he let his own Rayquaza take an unnecessary hit from a Yveltal (deja vu) and this reduced his ability to put pressure significantly. After his Rayquaza became less scary, his offensive capabilities were just shut down, as Dusk Mane and Eternatus failed to do much, and all Kyogre did was: switch in to eat a hit twice, double a few times, click 2 attacks in the last 3 turns of the game, then die. He never got rocks up and could never pressure Blissey with all his doubles, as he himself just took more rocks damage. 64 on the other hand hasn't had much issues of mons not living up to their potential, as he has had great matchup in both weeks and utilised that matchup quite well too. Yes he did choke in the end vs SoulWind, but that can be attributed to many things, nerves being one of them. Till that point though his plays were good. I think Nora will have to step up big time to win here, cos otherwise I think 64 is favored with his better prep so far + Nora being unlikely to bluff vs 64 or intimidate him or make him nervous into making a mistake.
