Hello again! It is good to be back writing, but I must admit that I have begun to feel a considerable disconnect from the game at large. In the past, I have experienced categorically similar feelings regarding my desire to play the game, but in this case, it is nearly the exact opposite—I want to be playing more and more than ever before, but I have been unfortunately able to attend any major events. Watching Regionals go by every weekend has been difficult for me, and while I am nothing short of ecstatic to see the top players remaining at the very top, I am still jealous than I could not be competing as well.
Though I was somewhat aware that this would be the case for me this season, it is my desire to be attending every Regional Championship from here on out. San Jose is likely to be a toss up given that it falls (pun) on Thanksgiving Weekend, but I will be in Memphis and Dallas, and then hopefully almost everything in 2018! The International events will likely be iffy for me, and I will sadly not be in London, but I hope to swing one of Austrailia or Brazil. Starting a new job and moving to a new city has been rewarding in its own rights, but you’ve gotta know that I’m itching to compete.

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!
