iBDW, often referred to by his first name, Cody, is a Melee smasher from Queens, New York, previously having attended college in Rochester, New York before graduating. He originally began competing out of curiosity for how far he could progress in late Spring of 2015, but after having difficulty finding practice in person he began grinding on Anther's Ladder, where he quickly rose to the top of the rankings. His play style makes heavy usage of Fox's up-air for juggles, his tilts and mobility for zoning and approaching, and quick out of shield options to create openings or end stocks. He is also famed for his heavy use of fulljumping to find openings and beat out approaches.
In pools of Smash Summit 8, iBDW went 0-3 losing to Zain 1-3, Spud 2-3 and Ginger 1-3, earning himself the bottom seed in main bracket, but once in main bracket he would go on to beat S2J 3-0 before losing to Trif 2-3. In losers, iBDW would beat moky 3-2, Mango 3-1, aMSa 3-0, and Hungrybox 3-1, before finally falling to Wizzrobe 1-3, placing 4th.
In September 2021, after almost a year of exceptionally solid performances online, iBDW would claim his first ever major tournament win at Riptide. He defeated Hungrybox 3-1, and then Plup 3-2 and 3-1 in two back to back sets to win the tournament without dropping a set.
iBDW would later win Smash Summit 12 in December 2021, a feat comparable to winning a supermajor. He notably defeated Hungrybox 3-1, Leffen 3-2, aMSa 3-1, Zain 3-2, and Mango 3-0 to win the tournament without dropping a set, claiming his first set win over Zain in the process and finally defeating every player that was ranked above him on the 2019 MPGR.
