So we have had a smashing three days of Warhammer Age of Sigmar at the Las Vegas Open 2019 (LVO 2019) and now its time for the final results, awards and top lists. Who came out on top from the 125+ players at the event? The first five rounds were held over Friday and Saturday and the top 8 players battled it out in a straight knockout over three rounds today.
Congrats to Scott Read and his team, Frontline Gaming and Best Coast Pairings for an absolutely stellar event to follow!

LVO 2019 – Top 8 Shootout
So here is the tale of the Top 8 knockout at LVO 2019! The players entered three further rounds with the scenarios and realm rules announced just before each round. They were:
- Round 6 – Focal Points in Ghur using Savage Hinterlands (no effect)!
- Round 7 – Total Conquest in Aqshy with the realmscape feature that has no effect.
- Round 8 – Blood and Glory in Ghyran with the Seeds of Hope realmscape feature.
- Bill Souza (1, FEC) beat Joe Krier (8, DoT)
- Jeff Paynter (5, SCE) beat Roger Barker (4, Grand Host)
- Matthew Pashby (6, Deepkin) beat Alan Bajramovic (3, Grand Host)
- Andrew Standiferd (7, SCE) beat Olivier Gandouet (2, Deepkin)
- Bill Souza (1, FEC) beat Jeff Paynter (5, SCE)
- Andrew Standiferd (7, SCE) beat Matthew Pashby (6, Deepkin) – with a minor victory tied at 14-14 at the end of the game!
So we were left with a mouth-watering match-up between Bill Souza, ITC #1 for the year and Team America ETC captain vs two-time defending champion Andrew Standiferd. Andrew fought hard, but Bill ultimately took it out at the bottom of Turn 4.

LVO 2019 Coverage
Frontline Gaming had streaming throughout the weekend on their Twitch channel (Warhammer TV was busy with the 40k). I understand they didn’t have much commentary, but did have the players mic’d up through the games. I also have a selection of videos from people at the event.
