My team had about 10 guys at the Michigan open run by Caique and Warrior Way over in Walled Lake, MI located outside metro detroit. I was in the masters heavy blue category and ended up with a bye in the first round. Please let me know any comments or criticisms as always. 2nd round (1st match). I'm in the white gi. This guy looked good in his first match beating what looked like a tough guy. My plan was to take down and work top game which is my tournament strength. My opponent his a nice trip on me, but i was able to scramble on top. I worked on top for a bit, then to north south and finally finished a kimura. I hope he is ok, as his arm was hurting after. finals. I'm the white guy. This guy was insanely strong (and had a nipple ring). I had problems working anything on him, and it turned out to be a boring-ish match I think. I was unable to get a takedown, and he wasn't doing much other then pushing me off and backing up. I got a little frustrated and took a bad shot. Ended up turtling and rolling to guard. I had a hard time setting up grips from guard and wasn't able to score, despite a near sweep from dhg as time was up. In OT he tried an armdrag, and I timed a good re-drag to take his back for the win.
