Hey there, tournament fans! After doing my "Triple Spotlight" article, I decided to make a series that covered tournaments across the country. Sorry if it took so long to get this started; I had to get the cover image just right before it was released to the public. (I'm a perfectionist like that. Problem?) Anyway, enough about me and my needs. This particular edition of TT will cover...


A Little Background Info

The first tournament of the KTAR (short for Keitaro's Tournament at Rutgers) series took place on December 6, 2009, in the quaint town of Piscataway, New Jersey. Keitaro was the only host of the event, and 45 players attended. However, as the series progressed, more people attended and hosts added. The second KTAR had 65 players, and Chen Li Cha was added as a co-host. KTAR 3 had 74 players, and welcomed Alex Strife to the hosting squad to make solid triad. What can we expect this year?

What We Can Expect This Year

KTAR 4 will take place tommorow, January 15. Ninety players plan on showing up compete for $1600 payouts, including famous folk like ANTi, Nairo The Booty Warrior, DuhZex., and Gnes. As for co-hosts, Heavy Garbage and dmbrandon will replace the previous ones for this particular tournament. Who will win? Who will lose? Who will drink dozens of sodas and crash from the hardcore sugar rush? I'm not sure about the last question, but for the answers of the first two, you'll have to attend to find out!

Location, Times, and Costs

This particular tournament will be held at 90 Leonardine Avenue in South River, New Jersey. It lasts from 10 am to 1 am. Doubles will commence in the morning (an hour after the event starts), and singles takes place in the afternoon (2:30 or 3 pm). This gives competitors plenty of time to prepare, and those that don't plan on competing a chance to chill, meet/make friends, watch some epic matches, and eat to their heart's (and wallet's) content. The singles and venue fees are ten dollars, and the doubles fee is twenty (ten per person.) However, you'll get a pretty little discount if you bring your TV or Wii. Keep this in mind if you're short a few bucks.

Main Event(s)

Super Smash Bros. Brawl is the only game featured at KTAR. The matches will be three stocks, seven minutes, best two out of three for preliminaries, and best three out of five for finals. Items will be turned off, and share-stock is allowed. All other fancy rules and regulations (as there are way too many to list in this article) can be found on the tournament's page.


If you're in the area or know someone that can give a ride, you should definitely strive to attend this tournament. I mean, what smasher wouldn't want to gather with other smashers for the game series they love, meet pros to get pictures, tips, and/or autographs, or go to avoid laborious tasks or countless hours of doing nothing? The answer: any sane person that loves Smash Bros. and has money, can mooch off friends, or be like a ninja and sneak in. I wish all that are competing the best of luck. And for others...what are you waiting for?! Click on the link above and prepare your vessel to set sail for the sea of fun, intensity, and awesomeness that is KTAR 4!
