2nd - Quoc "Afro Legends" Hung Nguyen ($2200)

2nd - Hajime "MCZ Tokido" Taniguchi ($2200)

3rd - Yusuke "EG Momochi" Momochi ($1500)

 

Prior to tournament day, two competitors were unable to attend, requiring Capcom to find alternates to take their place.  Sao Paulo qualifier for Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition 2012 and Street Fighter X Tekken, GR|Breno_Fighters, was unable to acquire a visa in time for the tournament and was replaced by Vance "Vangief" Wu For AE while Paul KS Jibbo" replaced Breno in Street Fighter X Tekken.   On Friday, Austin qualifier Jakob "Happy Medicine" Davis had to pull out from the tournament with a case of pneumonia that would have made travel harmful to himself and others.   David was replaced by Ari "EG fLoE" Weintraub who placed third in the same Austin qualifier. 

Korea's Infiltration and Japan's Daigo and Fuudo have all been Street Fighter IV Evo champs with Infiltration being the current title holder.  In the winner's finals, Daigo defeated Infiltration fairly easily forcing Infiltration to take on Fuudo in the loser's finals.  After a tough match, Infiltration won the match and would have to face Daigo once again in the grand finals.  This time around, Infiltration won two sets of three against Daigo in easy fashion to win first place and $25k.

Sethlolol was the last American left taking on Korean's Infiltration who had lost against Japan's Tokido.  After beating Sethlolol, Infiltration would have to come from the loser's bracket to win.  Infiltration and Tokido went the distance with Infiltration taking it all, winning another $25k as well as a new car thus solidifying himself as being the dominant Street Fighter player in the world.
