As many Australian SF players are aware of, Daigo Umehara is coming down to Sydney for the Evo APAC qualifiers to try to win a ticket to Evolution. Link: http://www.ozhadou.net
As I main Ryu, it would a dream fulfilled to get to play the premier Ryu in the world once in my lifetime.
My dilemma is however, as I did not even attend the Melbourne EVO APAC qualifiers, my only chance to play Daigo would be to join the masses of people moneymatching him at Sydney.
Obviously I would get to spectate an awesome tournament, play casuals, and see the Sydney FG scene, but is it really worth it to buy a plane ticket just to MM Daigo?
Edit: After the best bison in Melb, Somniac, told me that a return flight to Sydney is around 60 bucks, I think this is an opportunity I can’t pass up. I can tell my grandkids I got triple perfected by arguably the best Street Fighter player in the world!
