i think drinkhall will win, again.
they all know each others games very well, and i would back drinkhall to beat pitchford. i could be wrong, but we will see.
it should also be noted that baggaley beat pitchford 3-0, easily when they played in the bundesliga. so he could easily cause an upset.
should be some good matches anyways :)
i agree with EditingSports, it would be good if we got lots of countries national championships in video...like, we will have england, china and Japan once these ones are done, but it would be good to have others...Korea,Germany,Portugal, Singapore, etc..the list goes on and on :)
