[b]How did you qualify?[/b]

[b]Joni:[/b] Last year at a Regional at the European Championship – so I was one of the first players to qualify for this year’s event.[/quote]

[b]We’ve seen you before at the bigger events, what’s been your biggest previous accomplishment?[/b]

[b]Joni:[/b] Unfortunately, a fever hit me prior to Barcelona and I had to drop from the Main Event. I didn’t do too well in Bochum, either, but I still had a good time.[/quote]

[b]How do you feel about it being one of the last 32 players in the European Championship?[/b]

[b]Joni:[/b] I really didn’t expect that. I picked up Dragons just 2 weeks ago, but the Deck really worked for me. I only lost to very good players and I had very good games.[/quote]

[b]What do you like about the Deck the most?[/b]
[quote]
[b]Joni:[/b] I think it is the best Deck. You have a high number of options, so you can easily adapt to your opponent’s strategy, but you can’t commit to a lot of mistakes. It helped me a lot to grow as a player as I learned so much playing with it.[/quote]

[b]What’s your new goal now?[/b]
[quote]
[b]Joni:[/b] I want to keep doing well at the larger events. At this point, I can’t call myself a pro and I would very much like to be able to do that at some point in the future.[/quote]

[b]Will you attend YCS Brussels or London?[/b]
[quote]
[b]Joni:[/b] I probably won’t make Brussels, but I’m hopeful that I can make the trip to London![/quote]
