eS Game of SKATE June 2006 Tampa
By Rob Meronek

Willy Kane won today's eS Game of SKATE. See you at ASR in San Diego for the Pro Game, Willy. He won an all expenses paid trip

Chris Jata got matched up against a kid who just started skating. That was over quick, but then Anton Arratia ollie impossibled him right out of the Game in the next round

Khris Dupree's frontside pop shuvs were no match against Anton's ollie impossibles, which took Khris out in the first round

Anton Arratia made it all the way to the fourth bracket, but then got taken out by second place finisher Connor Kammerer. This is a fakie 360 flip

Robbie Kirkland is fresh off the SPoT ankle buster, but he could still throw down. This is a 360 flip

Does he like ribs that much? This kid's name is BBQ. BBQ got cooked in the second round by Malcom Seaman. This is a switch heel on the barbie

Abdias Rivera got taken out in the first round with the final trick being a fakie varial flip. This here is a regular varial flip

Abdias Rivera - switch 360 flip

TJ Sparks made it all the way to the Semi-Final round before he got taken out. This is a 360 flip

Jason Durbin took out Aaron Doerner here in the second round. This is a 360 flip

Yonnie Cruz took out John Stowe in the first round without getting any letters. This is John doing a switch varial heel

Yonnie Cruz made it to the third round, but then got taken out by Jason Durbin who got no letters. This is a nollie half cab flip

Yonnie Cruz - switch frontside flip

Brooks Jones took out Justin Myers here in the first round. It was a close game where both had "T" before it ended. This is a half cab flip

Mike Espinoza made it all the way to the Semi-Final round, but got taken out there. This is a nollie heel

Alex Pelligrino made it to the third round with his helmet and fakie flip before he got the boot

Robbie Kirkland got cancelled by Anton there on BGP's in the third round. This is a nollie flip

This was the scene for the final games which had the crowd pretty lit up

Jason Durbin was one of the last three left. I was hoping he'd end up at ASR with us, but he got taken out with a switch backside flip for his last letter. This is a nollie heel

TJ Sparks - backside flip

When Willy Kane made this switch double flip, everyone thought a letter was coming up for Connor. Connor made it. That was crazy

When Connor Kammerer made this nollie big heel, everyone thought a letter was coming up for Willy. Willy made it. That was also crazy

The remaining 10 people were divided up into two games of five people each. The final two were Willy Kane and Connor Kammerer. Willy ended up winning it with the final trick being a Jim Bates-ish backside 360
