Press Release: Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Origins Crowns Jake Phinney Champion of Main Event and Dragon Duel Winner Zach Taylor

This past weekend, Columbus, Ohio, was the epicenter of Dueling as the Yu-Gi-Oh! CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES (YCS) Origins crowned two winners. Jake Phinney found that he had outpaced the competition in the Main Event to earn himself the coveted spot of YCS Origins Champion. Additionally, young Zach Taylor made a name for himself as he won the Dragon Duel Championship.

Held during the Origins Game Fair, this two-day premier level event, presented by Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KONAMI), players of every age and ability showed off their impressive Dueling skills round after round. Phinney from Blanch, North Carolina played his Phantom Abyss Deck to propel him into Sunday’s Single Elimination. Then, after several rounds of Single Elimination, it came down to an exhilarating playoff with Aaron Furman from Linwood, New Jersey playing a Kozmo Deck.

In addition to the title of YCS Champion, Phinney returned home with a stellar set of prizes that included a YCS Championship Trophy, an Ultra Rare YCS Minerva, the Exalted Lightsworn Prize Card, a PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and an invitation and paid travel to his 2016 World Championship Qualifier (WCQ) tournament!

The Dragon Duel Championship, an event for Duelists born in 2003 or later, was no less exciting as Aurora, Illinois’ Taylor used his Sealed Deck then switched to his own Kozmo Deck in the finals. He had all the right moves to beat Eli Buckwatter who played a Battle Pack Assorted Deck in their head-to-head playoff. Taylor picked up some great prizes too, including a Dragon Duel Championship Trophy, a 2016 Regional Game Mat, a Dragon Duel Medal, a Regional Deck Box, a Super Rare set of the YCS Darklord Prize Cards, and an invitation to the 2016 Dragon Duel World Championship Qualifier tournament to be held during his WCQ.
