Surprisingly, the longest matches weren’t in the final rounds. It took Cody Cepeda over twice as many tricks to win in the second round as it did to win in the final round.
Grouping matches by the final scorewe see nine were shutouts and in nine others the winner won by a single point SKAT v. Shutouts tended to be shorter.
An exception was Nyjah Huston’s 23 trick streak to defeat Gavin Nolan. This shows us some exciting comebacks. Cody was rjles point away from being eliminated in the first round after his opponent landed 32 tricks in a row the longest streak of the tournament but miraculously turned the game around.
He won with the same trick he used to finish off Tom Asta in round 3 and get a point on Luan Oliveria in the final: Winning rock-paper-scissors and starting on offense was not a significant advantage.

Trent McClung was an exception to this rule. He had the third-highest make perctange but had the disadvantage of facing off against Cody in the first round.
