It isn't. If you recall though, he wasn't able to spam KnS against Echizen either once he was forced to direct his attention to something else (in that case, Zone's spin), so it certainly seems like some conditions need to be fulfilled for Atobe to use it.
Round 7 ends.
We will do our best to post the remaining matches as fast as possible, so that we can start with the final round.
I beat Sai, but making it to the KO stages requires Pat to beat Kuwa.
Regardless of the result of my final match (which seems unlikely that I can win, Kuwa has a good team. Sorry, Frosty ), I'm happy with my results. I guess Ryoga would have been a better #1 pick than Tezuka and I could have chosen a better first double than Akutsu and Kawamura but it's kinda hard to make better decisions when you know next to nothing about these characters.
Congrats to those who advance and good luck.
Well, I look forward to seeing how the battle between Kaoz, Hardy, Friss, and Kuwa turns out.
Happy about that result. I've been on a nice streak after dropping my first couple of matches. The final rounds should be a lot of fun.
What a far cry from past seasons for you, Kaoz.
With this, all matches of the group stage are completed, the final ranking looks as follows:
# Players Games Wins Draws Losses Points Set Count 1 Kaoz 6 6 0 0 18 +8 2 Hardy 6 4 0 2 12 +4 3 Friss 6 3 0 3 9 -1 3 KuwabaraTheMan 6 3 0 3 9 -1 5 FrostyMouse 6 2 0 4 6 +1 6 Sai_the_Shaman 6 2 0 4 6 -4 7 Miyagi 6 1 0 5 3 -7 8 LetalHawk 0 0 0 0 DQ DQ
Hardy, Friss, KuwabaraTheMan and I advance to the finals.
