At his first Legacy GP, Adam played Affinity and in round one, his opponent blew him out. #feelbad.
At another event an opponent rules lawyered Adam and he felt bad about the situation.
Making it to the Pro Tour for the first time.
Frustrated at inability to control outcomes.
Rushing. A lot of players do thing too quickly without thinking of the consequences.
Ask yourself " Why am I making this play now?"
'The most important decision is keeping your opening hand.'
