Round 1 vs Boldo playing R/U/W

He Beat me down quickly, but I was able to get a standoff with my Avatar. I made the mistake of casting a Trenching Steed, which allowed Boldo to Tap my Avatar with Rystic Deluge for the win. In game 2 I was able to stall the game again with my Avatar, but he finished me with his Kris Mage.
0-1, 0-2

Round 2 vs Neal also playing B/W

We beat eachother down until a standoff occurred with me at 3 and him at 12. I cast a Vicious Hunger, even though it couldn't kill anything. He didn't draw much black this game and I was able to break the standoff with Intimidation. He hit me for 4 damage, putting me at 1, but I was able to finish him off next turn. In game 2 Neal didn't draw any plains until late and my Chilling Apparition killed his hand. I followed that up with Predator, Flagship and Neal Conceded after he didn't draw an answer. We played a third game and he beat me easily, his deck was clearly better, but he didn't draw/have any Bombs.
1-1, 2-2

Round 3 vs Cameron Miller playing R/U

Cameron had fed me white, while I fed him Red so we knew many of eachother's cards. We went to 3 games, he defeated me with Cinder Elemental went I couldn't draw the 7th land in order to Forced March for 4.
1-2, 3-4

Overall, a good performance considering my opponents went 3-0, 2-1, and 2-1, respectively. All 3 made the final 4 out of 10 people. I had a pretty good deck, but the pairings didn't go my way.
