SixPrizes has been a phenomenal resource for me from the very beginning. Shortly after I started, I became a subscriber, and being able to partake in all the knowledge a lot of the best veteran players had to share helped me learn and grow as a player. I still read to this day so I can keep up with other players’ thoughts and ideas to help me stay on top of my game!
