Not departing from the Major

Banks wish to remain at PGL Major Stockholm. "I've had losses before, but nothing like this." I'll stick with the Major since it's what she'd want and there's nothing I can do back home. "All I have to do now is wait and keep myself occupied," he writes beneath his first tweet. He's also appreciative for all of the help he's gotten.


Everyone at PGL have been incredibly supportive. I've dealt with losses but nothing like this. I will continue on with the Major, it is what she would of wanted as there's nothing I could do back home...just have to wait and keep myself busy.
