Kamigawa – Time Spiral
Hubris. AJ thought he knew more than everyone and it stopped him from progressing until he realized this got in his way.
Going Pro after just over a year. AJ made top 8 of a GP in Denver. This was a turning point for AJ.
Worst Magic Moment

What Have You Learned From Magic
Time management, resources management, critical thinking, deduction, induction, etc.
Ideal Tournament Preparation
Time management is critical. These are only so many hours to prepare for a tournament, utilize that time that time wisely.
Biggest Mistake Players Make
People’s pride get in the way of their learning. Also, people just play cards on autopilot instead of actually playing a game of Magic.
Tournament Day Tips
Hydrate, eat, wash your face, go to the bathroom and sleep.
Hubris is poisonous. Have the humility to learn. Also, reflect on what you want out of Magic.
