I decided to try the Gwent tournament early in the game, despite that it was marked with a pretty high level. Unfortunately I found now why exactly a high level is recommended for this quest, and I'm stuck.
Finneas doesn't like to lose and starts a fist fight right after the game. As he's at a much, much higher level than me, I lost every time I tried it so far. I can't block all of his attacks, unlike with the much lower level opponents I fought so far in fist fights.
Any tips on fist fighting in general, or this specific enemy? I really don't want to abort the entire quest and reload due to this.
