Tayson Defas is a highly skilled Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite competitor who has a couple of secret weapons for staying focused during stressful tournament matches. He’ll meditate between games, sometimes even stepping away to sit on the floor. Also, he has a boyfriend, fellow fighting game player Sebastian “Sol” Oliva, who has been known to give him a quick good luck kiss.

This past weekend, these adorable tactics resulted in a big win for the Marvel player.
