Congrats on the very nice article and of course the early completion of your New Year's Netrunner resolutions, @Ajar!
That "Critical Turn" piece you linked to is also one of my favorite recent strategy articles. Cheers for that.
Lots of really good points here, but something that hit really close to home and which I can definitely improve on is not letting a couple of bad beats get into my head. In a room full of above-average to genuinly great players, you need the luck on your side, sure. But staying level-headed in a case of misfortune is maybe the most important feature to have as a tournament player and I know it has cost me countless of games before.
