Round 3
Mariana has made a lead of 4-3 before this all deciding last round. For this final game she has saved her best tool, a soup spoon. Her start is smooth but Francisco strikes from the back capturing exceptionally large area of space. For Mariana's misfortune her tool explodes after first two strokes. Her support group feeds a new tool, but her concentration is gone. Francisco hits from the back with his very wide 3D broad nib and lands 'QUIT' to the sand. Mariana's energy is back and she digs like hungry mole. After a while her type says 'Mine field', with a convincing, corresponding look - a mess.

Francisco's finishing touches are a subtle script lettering 'Force', completing his masterpiece 'Force QUIT'. He gains his title as a first portuguese champion in Silent Judo. Congratulations!

Mariana: 'Mine field' vs. Francisco: 'Force QUIT'
Typography: 0-1

The winner: Mr. Silent Judo Francisco Cruz! (4-6)
