Bobby Barone

Hey there, my name is Bobby Barone and I am a Canadian citizen of Italian descent. I started playing Yu-Gi-Oh! at the age of 12 but only started playing competitively in 2007. An interesting fact you may want to know about me is that I was actually an Player Intern for United Gosus in 2011 when James Neumann and myself both applied. Due to the fact that the format was pretty horrible at the time in early 2011 and UG was largely inactive, I ended up simply losing interest. In late 2011, I started taking the game seriously again and have been playing ever since. I am possibly best known for being one of the more decorated online Yu-Gi-Oh! players. Starting in 2005, I have accumulated a very impressive online competitive record in “war duels” on DuelistGroundz and Yu-Gi-Oh! ETC.

I have made the top cut at 2 SHONEN Jump Championships and 1 Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series tournament despite the fact that I am usually limited to solely attending Eastern tournaments. I have had the pleasure of playing with several of the members on United Gosus and I know how seriously they all take the game on a competitive level and this is exactly what I am looking for; that spark to push me to the next level. With the summer approaching and the inevitable influx of Eastern North American tournaments, I am certainly looking to do well and prove myself.
