In the Final Match of the Asia Championship 2017, we have Ho Yun Kang from Malaysia on the left, and Milton Chua from Singapore on the right.
Although they have already earned their invitations to the World Championship 2017, the title of the Asia Champion is still at stake here.
Both players are running True Draco Zoodiac.
Yun Kang went first and opening with a Pot of Desires. He followed up two Dragonic Diagram, destroying a True Draco Trap and Spell Card respectively, allowing him to draw 2 cards from True Draco Heritage.
He followed up with the standard Zoodiac combo and ended with Zoodiac Hammerkong and Zoodiac Whiptail on the field.
He set 3 more cards to his backrow and that was his first turn.
Milton opened with a Zoodiac Whiptail into Zoodiac Hammerkong, but Yun Kang flipped over True Draco Apocalypse and Tribute Summoned Master Peace, the True Dracoslaying King, using Apocalypse and Whiptail. Apocalypse destroyed Milton’s Hammerkong.
Milton played his first Dragonic Diagram and it was banished by Cosmic Cyclone. He had a second Diagram, but it was destroyed by Master Peace.
Milton set a Spell/Trap card and ended his turn.
Yun Kang Xyz Summoned Zoodiac Chakanine using Hammerkong and revived Whiptail. Both Zoodiac monsters were then used to Link Summon Missus Radiant.
Yun Kang Normal Summoned Zoodiac Ramram and tried to activate Diagram but Milton had a Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit. Ramram became Hammerkong and then Zoodiac Tigermortar to attach Whiptail to itself, before becoming Zoodiac Broadbull. Broadbull added Whiptail to hand.
Yun Kang attacked with Missus Radiant and Master Peace. And when Broadbull attacked, Whiptail was attached from hand, bringing Milton down from 8000 to 0 in one Battle Phase.
Ho Yun Kang (MY) 1 – 0 Milton Chua (SG)

Yun Kang played Harpie’s Feather Duster, and Milton chained with True King’s Return to Tribute Summon Master Peace using Return and Tigermortar.
