Tink is a Fox/Marth player from Northwest Indiana (although his proximity to Chicago causes many people to consider him as being from Chicago/Illinois). He was ranked number 12 in the nation on the final Smash Panel Power Rankings near the end of 2006.
Tink made his start in smash on the local level at a series of tournaments called "The Pen2 Monthlies" where he won his first tournament by defeating CunningKitsune with Jigglypuff. He then went on to participate in the "Melee Coliseum" series and so on...
Tink was one of the elite 5 players in the Midwest, also including Drephen, Dope, Vidjogamer, and Darkrain, that had dominated the Midwest since mid-2005. The players are so close in standing that rarely will any of them win consecutive tournaments, often knocking each other out.
