Pro Tour â San Diego (19â21 February 2010)Pro Tour San Diego was held at the San Diego Convention Center. The tournament began with five rounds of Standard, followed by three rounds of Zendikar-Worldwake Booster Draft on the first day. At the end of day one Gabriel Nassif and Luis Scott-Vargas were the only undefeated players left. The second day began with another Zendikar-Worldwake Booster Draft and was followed by five additional rounds of Standard. Luis Scott-Vargas was the story of the day, having won all his matches in day two as well, thus becoming only the second player to win each match in the Swiss portion of a Pro Tour, and the first to achieve this feat over sixteen rounds. Of the final eight players only Scott-Vargas had ever reached the top eight before. He quickly defeated his Dutch opponent. In the remaining quarter-finals the other Americans, Craig Wescoe and Kyle Boggemes, won their matches as well. German Simon Grtzen won the fourth quarter, defeating the Belgian Niels Viaene. In the semi-final Grtzen ended Scott-Vargas's streak, thus making it to the final where he played Boggemes. Both players had chosen Jund (red-green-black) decks. Eventually the German prevailed in a close match over the full five games.

I spoke to her last night about this topic. We live in the Sorrento Valley area, but out of convenience. I think Pacific Beach area and the Downtown areas would be a good place for singles. Add the Little Italy areas to that. What is nice about San Diego is that everything is within 20 minutes driving time.. so in a way... it does not really matter where you live you can always drive towards the action.â â â â â âHow is the life in San Diego?If you wanna go to the beach from May to Sept ? I think not ! You will need a body suit just stay warm..js.. I prefer South Florida if ur a beach bum :) at least the ocean is tolerable compared to So Cal.. jsâ â â â â âWhat is San Diego like?You get tired of everything, after a while you have nothing new to do and it's boring! The weather is not that great, and bonfires get old if you try them every weekend. No matter where you live you will always want to live somewhere else. I have lived in the city of San Diego all my life and I cannot wait to move!.â â â â â âWinter Pool Maintenance Tips in San Diego CA | Cherry Pool ServicesSwimming may not be a popular activity during winter in San Diego, but pools still need to be maintained. For one thing, a swimming pool's chemical balance is important. It needs to be regularly maintained. Frequent rainfall during winter can alter the pH level of your swimming pool.
