The second day of CapCom Cup 2016 takes place on December 3rd. (Capcom Pro Tour)

During the first day of CapCom Cup 2016, the 32 best Street Fighter players in the world went head to head with only eight moving on, and there were some major surprises to say the least.

Eight players will be heading into the second and final day of the tournament, which will last three hours and begin at 6:30 p.m. Pacific Time on Saturday, December 3rd. On day one, matches were best three out of four.

The show began to shock right away with Infiltration, the player who gave the best performance this season, losing the very first match of the show. He ended up coming in 25th place, a surprising development considering that he placed first at Evolution 2016 and won CapCom Cup just three years ago.

Tokido, a player who was considered to have a serious shot at the first place prize, also placed 25th.

Here are the rankings at the end of the first day of CapCom Cup:

Player Place
Luffy 9
Phenom 9
Xian 9
XiaoHai 9
Daigo 13
Eita 13
Fchamp 13
Mister Crimson 13
DRRay 17
Gamerbee 17
HumanBomb 17
K-Brad 17
Mago 17

Samurai 17
Brolynho 25
Chris T 25
Julio 25
Justin Wong 25

  • MOV
  • NuckleDu
  • Ricki Ortiz
  • Haitani
  • Fuudo
  • Yukadon
  • Kazunoko
  • GO1

Whichever one of those eight players can place first tonight will take home over $120,000 in prize money. Who will emerge victorious and be declared the Street Fighter V world champion? We’ll find out tonight starting at 6:30 p.m. Pacific Time.
