Daniel drew and set another back row to further fortify his defense.

Shelton drew and still has nothing to break through that many back row cards that Daniel has prepared for him.

Shelton finally flipped Green Kappa and targeted two of Daniel’s back row card but Effect Veiler was discarded to negate it.

Shelton set another 1 back row and ended.

Daniel drew and ended with another set card for his back row.

It is now back to Shelton. Green Kappa is flipped but was met with another Solemn Warning. He activated Shien Smoke Signal and fetched True Six Samurai Mizuho. He followed up by playing another Shien’s Dojo and Gateway of the Six. This is trouble if Daniel has nothing to stop a potential game ender here.

Mizuho is summoned and Daniel has no response to the summon. One counter is added to both Dojo and 2 are added to the Gateway. 4 Counters are removed to activate Gateway effect to search for True Six Samurai Shinai and it was special summoned. One more counter is added to each Dojo and 2 counters are added to the Gateway again. Another 4 counters are removed for Gateway and another Mizuho is added to Shelton’s hand which he immediately summoned to replenish the lost counters.

Shelton finally declared the use of Mizuho effect by releasing the Shinai on the field and destroyed herself. Shinai effect is triggered and Mizuho is added back into his hand. 4 counters are removed for Gateway’s effect and Shinai is added back into the hand. Shinai and Mizuho are special summoned once more and Shelton repeated this process repeatedly for an infinite loop.

Shelton use Gateway effect and removed the infinite counters and searched all the Six Samurai monsters in his deck and added it into his hand.

Shelton special summoned Grandmaster of the Six Samurai and then sent Shien’s Dojo to special summon Shien’s Yoriko. Tuning Grandmaster and Yoriko, he summoned Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier.

Shelton removed 4 counters from his Gateway and retrieved back the Grandmaster. Another 6 counters are removed to special summon Shien’s Yoriko to the field. Grandmaster is special summoned once more and together with Yoriko and Shinai, Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier is Synchro Summoned removing one card from the field, hand and grave.

Shelton discarded a card for Brionac’s effect to bounce away the Trishula back into the extra deck. Abusing the infinite amount of counters from the Gateway, Shelton retrieved back the same pieces that were used for the Synchro summon and special summoned them on to the field again. Trishula is synchro summoned once more removing more cards from Daniel’s side and he conceded once he realized what is going on.

Trishula infinite loop wins the game for Shelton!
