Sam’s friends didn’t go to play competitively. From game one, Sam knew he wanted to go big. Since his friends didn’t want to play at that level, Sam turned to MTGO and played a lot on that platform.
Worst Magic Moment
Sam played at a team event and did very well. The team wanted to go to another event in Seattle but delayed in booking the flight until it was too late. He let his team down and felt terrible. He learned so much from this experience.
Proudest Magic Moment
After Hour of Devastation comes out, Sam had over 800 live viewers. This was huge for him.
Getting his first check after a Magic event. Getting 100 viewers on Twitch.
