  • This event was the origin of the PTCG Hell meme "I won ARG." Alex Smetana claimed to have won the event, despite the fact that he only reached top 4 and then the top 4 players split prizes. Smetana was called out and the phrase "I won ARG" (which was not a phrase literally posted by Smetana), and variations on that theme, were quoted in Facebook groups in the following days.
