Street Fighter 2 Championship!

Street Fighter 2 Tournament
We stopped by STREET FIGHT! - the Street Fighter 2 Challenge at Rope in lovely Fort Greene, Brooklyn on Sunday night. The tournament was set up in pro fashion with big-screen projection and dual arcade-stick pedestals.

Addai BordenWinner Addai Borden took the final round using Guile against runner-up Arthur Young. Young, the underdog and crowd favorite due to his use of the weaker Dhalsim character, couldn't take down Borden after a stellar comeback run. Despite furious chants of "Dhalsim! Dhalsim!" from a probably inebriated crowd (the event took around three hours), Borden showed his combo chops and made quick work of Young.

Borden took home some cash, a lovely trophy, and a Karate Kid-inspired drum toy thing.
