All donations, still ongoing, to charity.

Top 8 starts: 3pm PST/6pm EST

Stream: https://www.twitch.tv/ludwig
Bracket: https://smash.gg/tournament/ludwig-ahgren-championship-series-3/event/melee-singles/brackets/891934/1424975

Notable upsets from yesterday:

S2J 3-2 Zain in winner's quarters!!! S2J went up 2-0 in games, but Zain brought it al the way back, came down to last stock game 5.

Kalamazhu 3-2 iBDW all the way early in winner's round 2 of top 64 (iBDW would go on a massive loser's run into top 9 over SDJ (3-1), Ryan Ford (3-0), Lucky (3-0), Llod (3-0), Hbox (3-2)).

Magi 3-1 n0ne in winner's top 32 (would go on to lose 3-0 to wizzy and ginger, while n0ne went on a loser's run into top 8 through KoDoRiN (3-1), Rishi (3-2), and Kalamazhu (3-0)).

Not exactly an upset at this point, but Hbox out at 9th, losing 3-1 to Mango (fox) in winner's quarters, and 3-2 to iBDW in loser's (came just short of clutching the reverse 3-0 though).

PP on commentary btw.

Axe 3-1 Zain.

Zain's pikachu (Axe) struggles continue. Although to be fair both games 3 and 4 were really close (3 especially both over 100% last stock). The biggest factor seems to be that Axe is really good at edge guarding Marth, which it seems like many other players/characters all too often just let him back on for free (being scared of getting clipped by Marth's up b, but I guess pikachu is less threatened by that owing to superior recovery combined with not being a fast-faller), and on the other side Marth/Zain still having difficulty edgeguarding/closing out those pika stocks.

That's so much money raised. It's not just from the Melee community right?

$90k was from Ludwig himself. The remaining $171k, as far as I could tell, was directly from the people watching the twitch stream. If those people qualify as the Melee community (and I expect the majority of them would), then yes, just from them. You should be able to go back and watch the VODs to see for yourself, since they had the total donation amount and notifications of each new donation made up on the stream the whole time. Although its entirely possible there were people from other communties like spatoon or the broader smash community jumping in to contribute in solidarity, it would be hard to really sort those out from the rest to give a definitive answer to your question.
