|YU-GI-OH! DUELING TIP|
If you set up a strong defense by having a powerful monster on the field, be careful not to create a hole in your defense. If you have "Giant Soldier of Stone" on the field (DEF 2000), then your opponent needs a monster with higher than ATK 2000 to damage you. Unless your opponent has a card that can attack your Life Points directly (like a Toon Monster), they will not be able to inflict Battle Damage to your Life Points. But if you then Summon a weaker monster this creates an opening for your opponent to attack you. He/she can get at your Life Points by attacking through the weaker monster. Even if you Set the monster in Defense Position, your opponent can damage you by using an effect like "Fairy Meteor Crush". So be careful not to put holes in your defense! - click here for another Dueling Tip.
