As both players brought their best tried-and-true Decks to the table, Vazquez Herrera and his impressive X-Saber Deck battled against Aguilar Gonzalez and his Blackwing Deck. The crowd swelled and all eyes were upon them as the Duels played out. It was only after a tense series of attacks and Summons that Vazquez Herrera triumphed over Aguilar Gonzalez.

Jonathan Sebastian Vazquez Herrera earned an exciting prize package that included a set of Ultra Rare YCS Prize Cards, an exclusive YCS Game Mat, a netbook computer, a paid trip to his 2011 World Championship Qualifier, and more!
