    i feel like it’s a ‘wheres waldo’ puzzle. Looked at that bracket 5 times and can’t find a David Cohen on it.

    Best of luck to him! Gotta catch ’em all!

      Sorry Jayd, looks like the URL does not change with the tabs.
      Masters tab, round 8 tab. He’s on the right. And looks like he’s won his first match today and is in the final 8 now!
