An interview with our local champion

Luis Scott-Vargas has been on quite a run, with two GP wins and a Pro Tour win in the last few months, in addition to a standout performance at Worlds. This weekend, he’s had a crushing performance at Pro Tour Kyoto 2009, with an 11-game undefeated streak before Matteo Orsini-Jones finally took him down in round twelve.
The day before the PT started, Rich Hagon channeled James Lipton and did this nice little interview with Luis:

Luis looks to be playing in the top eight tomorrow while our area PTQ – which he’d be helping judge any other day – will be nearing its own top eight.
