The first two rounds of the Nugget Bridge Major 5 have been completed, so let’s take the opportunity to see how Australia’s representatives have gone so far. We’ve counted 26 Australians competing in this year’s edition, the second highest contingent behind the USA, in an international competition with 28 countries represented!

After two battles, there remain four Australians undefeated: Phil Nguyen (@Boomguy_Pokemon), Wilson Quan (@Jovistron), Sam Pandelis (@MihoVGC), and “Warriorzzz”, with a large group sitting at 1-1.

As a whole Australia’s match record so far this tournament is 24 wins and 28 losses, with a game record of 62 wins and 66 losses, with wins and losses pretty evenly spread amongst our representatives.
