I thought I'd aggregate them all into one post, rather than string them out this time!

#vDixiecon: Vale of Humility https://youtu.be/q61bVJdIzN4

This game ended in a 4WD, A/F/R/T. The video opens with Brandon introducing the commentators. Bill Hackenbracht has some unusual opening builds. Steve Hogue prevents his elimination / secures his place in the draw with an excellent build in w1904. Matt Shields appears as a guest commentator.

This game ended in a 3WD, E/F/T. 3-time World Champion Andrew Goff continued his shenanigans, and finished in 2nd place overall. Matt Shields and Mitch McConeghey appear as guest commentators

#vDixiecon: Michael Jordan https://youtu.be/s02Q1HlwZg8

This game ended in a 4WD, A/E/F/T. This draw, plus his earlier solo victory, earned Christian Kline the tournament victory! Jonathan Saul only needed one more center to tie Andrew Goff for second place, and two more to pass him - of course he did not know this at the time. Matt Shields and Mitch McConeghey appear as guest commentators

#vDixiecon: Kitty Hawk https://youtu.be/YzTa_EDdGqk

This game ended in a 3WD, A/E/T. Zach Moore in France ends up voting himself out of the draw, despite being on the stalemate line. Mitch McConeghey appears as a guest commentator, and Russ Dennis gives some after-action insight to the endgame

#vDixiecon Tobacco Road https://youtu.be/ahLpjqQLbQw

This game ended in a 4WD, E/G/I/R. Matt Shields appears as a guest commentator. This board was completely dominated by Conrad Woodring's England and Troy de Freitas' Germany - until Troy went for the Solo! Italy and Russia squeak into this draw despite Italy owning NO home centers and Russia only owning Sev and Ank.

E Conrad Woodring
F Tony Swinnerton
G Troy de Freitas
I John Anderson
R Caleb Winters
T Daniel Pedersen


#vDixiecon: Wilmington Insurrection https://youtu.be/q61bVJdIzN4

This was the longest game of the night, ending at 2:42 AM Eastern, almost 9 hours after the round began. The game ended in a 3WD, F/G/T. This board featured 2-time World Champion Doug Moore, and long-suffering friend of the stream Jason Mastbaum, who much to Siobhan's (feigned) dismay fought his way into the draw. Matt Shields appears as a guest commentator, and the stream ends with Brandon and Siobhan commiserating about the nearly 7 hours they have been on air!

E Greg Fairbanks
F Hunter Katcher
G Doug Moore
I Ed Prem
R Eric Hunter
T Jason Mastbaum

#vDixiecon: Woolworth's Lunch Counter https://youtu.be/jbm-5V19xCQ

This game ended in a 5WD, E/F/I/R/T. World Champion Chris Brand in Italy works his magic. Ariel Mendez-Penate gets some feedback on his decision to build Army Liverpool in w1901. Matt Shields appears as a guest commentator. Siobhan gets over her skis a bit giving life advice. At the last minute, F/E/R get their act together and form a stalemate line, preventing I/R from making things VERY interesting.

A Chris Barfield
E Ariel Mendez-Penate
F John Jamieson
G Zac Mrostros
I Chris Brand
R Tanya Gill
T Yaroslav Bartko

Thank you so much! I will say, here, that if anyone is watching these I would very much appreciate it if you would like the videos and subscribe to the channel - youtube has some interesting algorithms, and the more likes/subscribes I get, the more they show the video to other people who _might_ be interested. So its a win/win for the diplomacy community, I think? :)
