Palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy. You’re not losing yourself in the music; you’re trying to not lose outright in the tournament. Tournament nerves are a real thing, and even the best in the world face it.

Echo Fox|Justin Wong has tackled that problem head-on, as he discussed with players at Red Bull Conquest — including Sanford Kelly, Chris G, LPN, and more — about how what pre-game rituals they have that help them to combat tournament nerves. Some of the answers range from interesting (such as always eating the same thing for breakfast) to zany (such as pre-tournament bathroom rituals).
