I used a Dark World Deck at a Qualifier in Japan, it proved rather competitive and although it was difficult to play, it helped me to secure a spot in the World Championship!

I think you need a lot of creativity and a deep understanding of the game so you can come up with the best possible moves for every given situation!

[/p]

I was playing a Six Samurai Deck at a tournament and did well enough. The Deck is very popular, but I ended up on top of the competition to earn my spot at the World Championship!

[p]
I think you have to have the necessary confidence and believe in yourself!
[/p]
[p][b]How do you like Amsterdam so far?[/b][/p]
[p]
To be honest, I prefer Japan. I’m not used to the food and it gave me some troubles.
[/p]
[p][b]What do you like the most about the card game?[/b][/p]
[p]
I made a lot of friends and that’s the best aspect of the game! They keep my spirits high and that’s while I’m still playing!
[/p]
[p][b]Who’s crossing their fingers for you right now?[/b][/p]
[p]
I want to thank all the Japanese players for rooting for us!

My experience at the tournament was a constant up and down as most of the Duels were very hard to win. However, I somehow pulled through and earned my spot in this year’s World Champs!
[/p]
[p][b]What does it take to make it to the World Championship?[/b][/p]
[p]
You have to read the whole tournament and figure out what your opponents will be playing. If you find a lot of concentration, you can win every tournament!
[/p]
[p][b]How do you like Amsterdam so far?[/b][/p]
[p]
There are a lot of canals and the buildings in Amsterdam are not like the buildings in Japan! It’s cool to see something so different!
[/p]
[p][b]What do you like the most about the card game?[/b][/p]
[p]
You can play a lot of different opponents and every game feels different. I love the interaction with other Duelists!
[/p]
[p][b]Do you want to give a shout out?[/b][/p]
[p]
Yes, sure! Here goes: “Dear De-esu, when is the De-Esu Championship?”

I think it takes a lot of hard work. You have to listen to other people’s input and take your time, this is some of the best advice I can give you!
[/p]

[/p][p]
It’s been pretty nice. I arrived a little later than the rest of the players, so I missed the boat trip. It was nice to explore it a bit on foot, but I certainly wouldn’t have minded to join the cruise.
[/p]
[p][b]What do you like the most about the card game?[/b][/p]
[p]
The strategy – trying to outplay your opponent is extremely challenging, but it is lots of fun. Lots of players think that there’s a lot of luck involved in the game, but I think you can often overcome it, too, if you got the right strategy!
[/p]
[p][b]Would you like to greet some friends?[/b][/p]
[p]
I want to greet Claire, Billy, Jeff, Anthony, Scott, Dan, Robert and everybody else I didn’t have the time or ability to say thank you for supporting me!

I picked up the game in May 2010, but I was lucky enough to win this year’s National Championship in Thailand! Now I’m in the top 8 of the World Championship and it almost feels unreal!
[/p]
[p][b]What does it take to make it to the World Championship?[/b][/p]
[p]
You have to keep a level head and try to make the best decisions.

[p]
I really like it! It’s a lot colder than Thailand and that’s a nice change!
[/p]
[p][b]What do you like the most about the card game?[/b][/p]
[p]
It’s lots and lots of fun!
[/p]
[p][b]Would you like to greet some friends?[/b][/p]
[p]
I guess no one in particular, but ALL the players from Thailand!
