I was so happy that I’m finally able to achieve something concrete in eSports. I often failed at the last step in other TCG or OTCG, now it’s the time! I’m actually really happy to go back to the US after a semester there can’t wait for February!

3) What are your thoughts now?

Improving, testing, building, giving the best!

Coming to a financial stability first ! Have an easier life as student and enjoy the rest of it.

8) Could you tell us a little about the deck that carried you to victory in the HEX IQ?
My Sealed pool had pretty good synergies for both Diamond/Blood or Diamond/Ruby I chose to go for Anana Blood/Diamond because I’m more comfortable with it and feel like it opens up more mistakes on the opposing side. In the Draft I forced Blood/Diamond because I feel it’s by far the best archetype and got rewarded pack 3 with double Angel of Judgment.

9) Where can people watch you play?
Before I was streaming on Twitch or through a eSports website but since then my computer isn’t performing well enough at the moment.

10) Do you have a message to your fellow HEX IQ winners? Why do they need to be on the lookout for you?
I wish to have fun in addition to produce entertainment and great plays during the competition. Maybe they need to be aware that I’m a really versatile player and a real hard-worker when it comes to playtesting.
