Have you ever been in a match and everything seems to be going the way you planned it? Then out of no where in a matter of one turn things are not going the way you had planned. All of a sudden you are the one looking for a way to come back. Has your YuGiOh mindset just changed?
The YuGiOh Mindset is a set of attitudes that every YuGiOh player should try to master, regardless of their level of playing, limits, or technical skill. There are realities to be aware of and attitudes to adopt to succeed at YuGiOh over time.

Have you ever been in a match that you put your opponent in a situation that they will lose on your next turn? They may have some cards in their hand but don’t have any type of board presence. You are feeling real good. Then they draw their card and BAM!!!! You are all of a sudden running for your life.
I’m sure you are like me, I hate it when that happens. You played the match perfectly then all of a sudden you are the one that is losing. That shouldn’t happen!!! But I seen it and experienced it several times personally. I’m sure you have too. READ THE FULL ARTICLE >>
