Early Challenge

Kevin has always been competitive and his play group was too. He watched his younger friends get really good he wondered why he wasn't improving. Kevin expanded himself by playing new decks and learning different archetypes. 

Magic Milestones

Kevin made top 8 at States in 2004.

Worst Magic Moment

At his first Pro Tour, Kevin built his deck the night before the event. He failed to make day 2 and was really taken aback by it.

Proudest Magic Moment

Winning a Grand Prix.

What Have You Learned From Magic

Math :). Magic also changes the way you think as far as values and risk.

Biggest Mistake Players Make

Caring so much that it pains you to lose. Young players tend to lose sight of the big picture and get torn up when they lose. To overcome this, your mindset / approach to Magic needs to evolve to where you enjoy the game and understand that it is a game and how lucky you are to fuel your competitive drive through a complex hobby.

Parting Guidance

Don't lose sight of yourself and don't let loses define who you are.
