It pays out to play in the Public Events

Sahar Cohen is not only one of the players who took the longest trips to Milan, he’s also the player who had the cheapest trip [dash] everything was already paid for. Obviously, there’s no cheaper way to get to the YCS. How he did it? Read on to find out…
When most players hear about the YCS, they only think of the main event. However, the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series is much more than just “one big tournament” [dash] we have lots and lots of exciting Public Events that feature amazing prizes! Sahar Cohen participated in the YCS Bochum, made day 2, but lost the first round on Sunday. He then opted to try his luck in the Public Events and won one of the “YCS Trial” tournaments; that meant Konami would pay for his trip to Milan as well as his accommodation. As he’s from Israel and travelling from there to Italy is not cheap, winning this trip meant a lot to him!
How was the YCS Bochum for you?
[quote][b]Sahar Cohen:[/b] I travelled to Bochum with a couple of friends and we had a short vacation. At the end of it, we were playing in the YCS and one guy from our group was rather successful.
It’s a lot different this time as I was on my own. My friends are still in Israel. It’s still cool and I have a lot of fun, getting to know more Duelists from all over Europe![/quote]
What do you think about the side event schedule?
[quote][b]Sahar Cohen:[/b] It’s cool. Who am I to complain?![/quote]
How is the Yu-Gi-Oh! community in Israel?
[quote][b]Sahar Cohen:[/b] We’re a pretty small community. However, if we hold a big tournant, we still have something between 40 and 50 players in Tel Aviv. On workdays, our local tournaments feature around 20 Duelists.[/quote]
What will be the next tournament you’ll attend after this tournament?
[quote][b]Sahar Cohen:[/b] I guess it will be a tournament in Israel. I’ll try to get another free flight, otherwise I’ll have to stick with local tournaments for the time being.[/quote]
Alright, one last question: What are you running today?
[quote][b]Sahar Cohen:[/b] I’m playing Six Samurai today. I really like the deck, but still lost the first round. I just won the second one, so let’s see how it goes.[/quote]
