Parents & Opinions: Uros Lavrencic

01.12.2019 | 17:10 |

At the parental area we spotted Uros Lavrencic. He came all the way from Slovenia to accompany his son Malin to play at the Dragon Duel event. Malin already made Top 4 at the European Championship 2019 in Utrecht and aims to go to Worlds one day.

[b] Hi Malin, how did you get started playing [ygo]? [/b]
[quote] My uncle introduced me to it. He won cards in the lottery and gave them to me. After getting familiar with the game, I started attending to locals about two years ago. Ever since I played at the Slovenian Nationals and made it to first place in the Dragon Duel. Having earned my invite to Euros, we went to Utrecht where I placed 4th. It felt great being one of the top 4 Dragon Duelists in Europe. Unfortunately, I missed out on Worlds Qualification, but I decided to try this year again.

[b] Where do you usually play? [/b]
[quote] We have a local in a city that is 20 minutes away from our home. The guy there hosts the events and has OTS packs as well. For bigger events like Regionals I need to go to Ljublian. These event are much bigger than our local and really like to go there. I enjoy playing these big events.
During our summer holidays we went to Vienna. We’ve spent there two weeks and I’ve to a local store there almost every day. It was amazing.

[b] What deck are you running for this event? [/b]
[quote] I decided to go with Altergeist for this event. I like the deck and how it runs. When preparing for this event I thought that there will be a lot of Orcust and Altergeist has a good matchup against it. In the first three rounds I faced three Orcust and won all the matches. So, until now, my decision paid off. [/quote]

[b] Uros, how do feel about your son playing [ygo]? [/b]
[quote] It’s ok! He started playing chess some time ago and quit for [ygo]. He is successful and I feel like he’s learning a lot. He also learns how to deal with uncertain situations and figure out ways how to cope with pressure. Overall, I have the feeling that it’s a good thing for him.

[b] How do support your son? [/b]
[quote] I’m driving him to locals. Sometimes he goes there with his friends and they take him there. He learns a lot from the game. In chess, there is no such thing as luck. [ygo] is a card game and since card are shuffled, there is a certain amount of luck involved. He also needs to talk English and communicate with other children from different countries.
I was surprised to see that how much certain cards are worth. He won prize cards at Euros and we sold it and I was surprised to see how much they are worth.

[b] Have you ever tried to play [ygo] yourself? [/b]
[quote] I’ve tried it but it’s nothing for me. I’m developing board games and like to play games, but it didn’t really catch me. Furthermore, it is his game and I want to leave it to him. Sometimes I try to help him out how to stay focused and how to prepare and approach the game. I do have some coaching appearance and I try to make use of it when going to these big events.

[b] What impression do you have from the event? [/b]
[quote] I’m surprised how well run these events are. Utrecht, which was our first event, was pretty impressive. We had a great time going there and I try to take home as much impressions as possible. We have a local table tennis club and I like to spread the word about it. Maybe some things I’ve experienced here might work there as well. The only thing that I wonder is: why is there no online registration system?
