I have to admit that I have been rather frustrated with the schedule of events recently. I believe that I somewhat hinted at this in my last article earlier in November but the lack of Regionals recently has made this season difficult for me to participate in. I knew I would be unable to make London Internationals at the start of the season and perhaps it is the main justification for this dismal gap between Vancouver and San Jose.
Over a month has passed and I have not been able to attend a single event despite finally having the time to do so. Why host an event over the busiest weekend of airline traffic and transit while all of November and early December was completely free? I apologize if this comes off too much as a personal complaint, but as someone who is itching to compete, I cannot help but be dissatisfied with a system unintentionally stacked against me. Alas, I will press on and should be at Cups and Memphis Regionals every weekend for the rest of the year after Thanksgiving!

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!
