The regular season of the 2019 Capcom Pro Tour concluded in Las Vegas at the North America Regional Finals.
The tournament was split into an open event and the regional finals, which took the top eight players in the CPT North America regional leaderboard and had them compete in a double elimination bracket.
After defeating Benjamin “Problem X” Simon of the UK in the winner’s final 3-1, Hong Kong’s Yeh “HotDog29” Man Ho entered the grand final to face off against USA’s Du “NuckleDu” Dang. NuckleDu took the first set to reset the bracket, but despite NuckleDu’s best attempts to change characters and throw off HotDog29, he lost the second set 3-1.

Despite the setback in the open event, NuckleDu advanced to the grand finals of the regional final after taking down Philadelphia native Victor “Punk” Woodley 3-1. Punk fought his way back into the grand finals but lost once again, 3-1 to NuckleDu.
NuckleDu had already qualified for the Capcom Cup due to his points on the Global Leaderboard, and so the qualifying spot opened up to the next player on the standings, Bryant “Smug” Huggins.
The final event to round out the 2019 CPT season is the Capcom Cup, scheduled for Dec. 13-15 in Los Angeles.
