[b]Deck you played this weekend:[/b] Inzektor
[/p][p]
[b]What’s been your toughest match this weekend?[/b] I got paired against a friend in Round 6 and we both knew the contents of our Decks. I thought about simply giving him the win so he could continue his winning streak, but I eventually played the match and ended up in the Top 4.
[/p][p]
[b]What are you looking forward to the most at the World Championship?[/b] I really want to experience the Japanese culture first-hand! I really like Anime and Manga and I heard their cities are really impressive. I can’t wait to see them!
[/p][p]

[b]Hometown:[/b] Thessaloniki

[b]Deck you played this weekend:[/b] Chaos Dragon
[/p][p]
[b]What’s been your toughest match this weekend?[/b] Oh, that’s a tough question. I played a Dino Rabbit player and the game went back and forth. It was so intense, I can’t even remember most of the details. It happened during one of the Swiss rounds yesterday!
[/p][p]
[b]What are you looking forward to the most at the World Championship?[/b] I really just want to see Japan! I love Anime and look forward to seeing some in the country it originated from.
[/p][p]
[b]What’s your favorite Deck of all time?[/b] I can’t decide between the French Twilight Deck and the X-Saber Deck with [cat]. French Twilight had so many boss monsters, it was lots of fun summoning them all to the field one after another and starting to lay the beatdown on opponents! X-Saber had [cat] and it was one of the best cards to draw into in literally any stage of the game.

[b]Deck you played this weekend:[/b] Wind-Up
[/p][p]
[b]What’s been your toughest match this weekend?[/b] My Top 16 Match. I played a friend and I had [w mag] and [w shark] and he had next to nothing. I did not want to continue playing as I didn’t want to kick him out of the tournament. We were both close to tears. I think from then on, it can only get better!
[/p][p]
[b]What are you looking forward to the most at the World Championship?[/b] I have a lot of friends that will help me prepare for the tournament. This will definitely be lots of fun, but I’m afraid the Japanese girls might turn out to be a litte distracting.
[/p][p]
[b]What’s your favorite Deck of all time?[/b] I played an Anti Meta Deck in 2010 and it helped me to make it all the way to the Semi Finals of the European Championship 2010, so I could go to Worlds thanks to it!
