294: Play to the End with Laszlo Poroszkai
Laszlo Poroszkai is from the North-Eastern part of Hungary, a small city without an LGS. He first started playing around 2000 and stopped when Counterspell was not reprinted. He came back in Zendikar and has been to a lot of Grand Prix since then. He’s semi-competitive but mostly plays for fun (and counterspell). Laszlo lives in Onga, Hungry.
Laszlo thought he was a good player but realized he had a lot to learn. At first, he blamed luck but then he saw the problem was him. He got better by making friends and traveling and playing with them.
