Updated 7:50 a.m. PDT, Sat December 9, 2017: And the results are in! To see how our readers voted, be sure to hit the jump.

Earlier: Capcom Cup kicks off tomorrow with the Last Chance Qualifier, wherein up to 256 players will scuffle for the final spot in the 32 man Capcom Cup bracket.

From there players will compete for over $370,000 in prize money, along with the title of best Street Fighter 5 player in the world.

With the top 32 on Earth under one roof, combustibility and volatility levels are sure to be off the charts. While some big names stick out, (FOX|Tokido, PG|Punk) others could very well sweep in and take the whole thing.

There's really no telling how this whole thing will play out, but you're dead wrong if the FGC isn't speculating left and right about this high stakes, end of the year extravaganza.

We do know how the first round bracket is shaped, and so at this point we can give our best guesses as to how the event's first 16 matches will pan out.

We've created 16 polls wherein you can vote and share your thoughts on who will be advancing to round two, and who will be headed to the losers bracket early on.
