Dear Alois/Jeff,

I have an amateur tournament tomorrow, and this is my first. I have done much practice, but I am still quite nervous about tomorrow's results.

FYI, I am playing in a team of 4 against other relatively strong contenders.

Not asking much about the strategy and technique here, but may I know any tips to boost my mindset or maintain a sense of Zen and sanity before and during the competition. Thanks in advance!

 Hi Ryan,

Good to hear you are playing.

I think the most important thing is to go in with a mindset of learning and doing your best.

The most nerves happen when we get scared about losing.

Try to maintain focus on playing well and executing skills well.

When you start to get nervous, everyone does, take a deep breath to calm yourself and then put your focus on your strategy for the next point.

If you can maintain that rhythm you will find yourself coming out at the end of the day with good knowledge and a good feeling about the day.

Good luck. Let us know how you get on.
