Just a note, but Jamie is the player who I met at GenCon and was constantly
praising. Watching him play is both humbling and inspiring.
Imagine just for a moment how many times you re-read text on your own cards,
and/or ask to see an opponents cards. Jamie can not do any of that. Now
factor in that Jamie has only played for less than a year. *THEN* consider
that he got second at two Koteis and just barely missed the cut at the end
of Saturday ay GenCon. Getting the picture?
So you all know, he is on this list and frequents DragonStrategy. He is the
guy who got the ruling for us on Palm Strike/Kansuke/Hoshi. He is an
amazing player and an even more amazing guy. I even had lunch with him one
day (You still owe me Jamie :)), and can not wait to see him at the next
