[POJO] What do you like best about the PokeMon TCG?
[SG]   I like the simplicity of the game how it is easy to learn and fun to play, yet it still requires thinking to make a good deck

[POJO] What do you dislike about the PokeMon TCG?
[SG]   The only thing I dislike about pokemon is the fact that some players think Im too old to play and what not, but in my store we have a age range from about 6 - 40

[POJO] Do you find casual play or organized competition to be more fun?  Why?
[SG]   I find competitive play more exciting because its kind of a do or die situation and I normally handle those better than my opponents because they are intimidated by my rank, I try to tell them Im just here for fun and to let it go though so it will be a better game

[SG]   I normally get to play once or twice a week

[POJO] What was you most thrilling victory?

[POJO] What was your most crushing defeat? 
[SG]   I cant really recall ever having a defeat too crushing, if they won they deserved it

[POJO] Who is your toughest competition?  Why?
[SG]   I would have to say a couple of my toughest competitors are Sam MacLean and Eric Cooke, because they are top players and they know how I play my decks.

[POJO] What is your favorite card?  Why? 
[SG]   I would have to say one of my favorite Pokemon is Electabuzz because it has 2 really strong attacks and my favorite trainer is Professor Oak because it lets me replenish my hand 
[POJO] What kind of deck to you dread having to play against? 
[SG]   I dont really have any decks I dread playing against other than a deck that my current deck is weak to

[POJO] What does it mean to you to be ranked as one of the best PokeMon TCG players in the world?

[SG]   It really caught me off guard when I saw I was #7 in the world after only 4 weks of playing, Ive only been around playing pokemon for a couple months now so i take being a top player with pride

[POJO] Do you play the PokeMon video game? 
[SG]   I have played the pokemon gameboy games but I finished them easily and moved on to the actual cards  

[POJO] Do you watch the PokeMon Animated Series?
[SG]   I have seen all the episodes released in my area

[POJO] Do you have a collection of PokeMon toys? 
[SG]   I do not collect pokemon toys but I have gotten some for my sisters

[POJO] Is there anything else youd like to say?
[SG]   I just want all who read this to know it is not impossible to be a top layer, just train hard and think about what you are going to play against in your environment, and make a deck that would do well there. If anyone wants they can email me ..
