Fact or Fiction

Early Challenge

Playing at a very competitive store. Kyle formed friendships with players close to his ages. From there they played and traveled together and started talking to the better players.

Worst Magic Moment

2011-the whole year. Kyle had great success in 2010 and all the benefits rolled over to 2011. However, he did horribly all year long. It was tough to have so many people follow him and then not do well.

Proudest Magic Moment

Winning GP Cincinnati in 2014. It was his first top 8 after coming back and it was a win so it was a big deal.

What Have You Learned From Magic

Kyle has been able to work hard out at something and see tangible results.

Biggest Mistake Players Make

Players don’t understand side boarding. People over the sideboard. Have a focused game plan in game 1. Then, post-sideboard, you can be more targeted.

How to Effectively Prepare for a Big Event

For Limited, Kyle plays as many sealed events as he can because he recognizes that’s his weakness. He talked a lot with friends about his pool.

Parting Guidance

Everyone has different goals when playing Magic. What are your goals? Know them and operate within that.
