The third and last day for Final Round 2019 has already concluded. A variety of games were played at this tournament.

Although Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition was the main attraction with over 300 entrants, there was some hype competition when it came to Dragon Ball FighterZ, Tekken 7, Soul Calibur 6, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. We've got a selection of highlights to talk about for each game.

First, let's start with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Our first highlight focuses on a match between Typo|Sonido's Sonic and Winks' Zero Suit Samus.

Both players were on their last stocks. Sonido's victory seemed assured as he had a fresh stock while Winks' was sitting at over 150% damage.

Eventually, Winks' Zero Suit Samus was able to land a Z aerial. From there, he nabbed Sonic with a landing neutral air.

He ended this string with Zero Suit Samus's Flip Jump spike. The red screen freeze appeared and surprised the commentators. Sonic was unable to recover in time.

Grand finals featured an amazing battle between FS|SaltOne and IMT|ANTi. Despite being sent to the losers by ANTi originally, SaltOne appeared to have caught wind of his opponent's tactics.

SaltOne was able to reset the bracket with Cloud then win it all as Roy.

Now onto Dragon Ball FighterZ.

CO|Go1 was on fire as he sent GGP|Kazunoko to the losers bracket with a 3-0 victory.

Kazunoko's Yamcha and Adult Gohan ended up taking a lot of damage from CO|Dogura's snap back strategy as it converted recoverable health into raw damage.

Dogura blocks for 15 straight seconds in the Gotenks blender before getting opened up.

Upon making it to the grand finals from the losers side, Kazunoko was forced to deal with Go1's many different set ups with Piccolo.

For the Soul Calibur 6 grand finals, MvZ|LoloMx ended up finishing the tournament in style with an awesome Yoshimitsu combo.

EQNX|Joey Fury and his JACK-7 was able to get in one last hit on Disrupt|Shadow20z before the timer expired. If not for that hit, he would not have won the round.

With only a pixel of life remaining, Shadow20z was able to mount an amazing comeback against Joey Fury.

Although Shadow20z would ultimately win the tournament, MnT|Trungy's performance with Geese Howard was simply amazing.
