managed to get quite lucky against kamikaze and won 3-0.

for the record, i dont think the luck affected the overall ending outcome of the match, unless I got obscenely lucky. It merely dug my grave sooner rather than later.

There was one mon I really should have just listened to my gut and brought but didnt. I just gotta practice more. You played well. Good luck in the rest.
