Making day 2 at a Grand Prix. Joshua made friends and talked about Magic a lot. He played a lot as well.
At his second Grand Prix, Joshua missed day two by one match. He misplayed and lost the game. Joshua learned when he's ahead he gots sloppy. So now, he takes a few more seconds to think.
Qualifying for his first Pro Tour.
How to meet and talk new people.
Players get sloppy and make poor plays. They make hasty plays and don't think of all the other options.
Self-reflection is key. Consider what you did right and what you did wrong.
Talk to Magic players as much as you can. Feel free to reach out to Joshua
