2 days to go - will I get it or not?

So my next shiai is 2 days away, and I truly think that I am grossly unprepared as my practice schedule has been erratic over the past month or so. This tournament is a promotional tournament, which means that how I far may or may not determine how long it takes me to achieve my next belt - Nikyu (to the un-initiated, second-degree brown belt).

From what I understand, I need to accumulate four points in wins to jump to the next level. There are various combinations of how that can happen, but in simple terms I need to beat 4 people of equal rank to advance. Given my current state of practice, I don't think it's going to happen, but I will play my best and my goal is to get at least 2 of those points.

Wish me luck, and I will tell you how it goes.
