BeachCast Episode 3: Arena Cup Results and Fall Regionals!

Welcome to our third episode of BeachCast, PokeBeach’s competitive TCG podcast! Before each big tournament type takes place (such as Regionals, Cities, and States), PokeBeach’s Premium TCG writers get together to discuss the competitive TCG scene right here on the front page!

This edition is about an hour and 20 minutes and discusses what did well at the recent Arena Cup in Würzburg, Germany, predictions for the upcoming Fall Regionals, and some thoughts on the Standard format. Our writers for this addition are Andrew Mahone, Benjamin Sauk, Steve Guthrie, Treynor Wolfe, and Jimmy Pendarvis (a new writer for the site), all of whom will be competing at Regionals this Fall!

You can either click on the Soundcloud player to listen to the podcast on this page, or download it through the link at the top right of the player. Perfect for your long car or plane ride to Regionals!
