Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME CHAMPIONS PATRICK HOBAN AND BEN LEVERETT ARE HEADING TO LAS VEGAS TO REPRESENT NORTH AMERICA IN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
El Segundo, CA (July 22, 2013)
– Besting more than 2000 Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG)
players in highly competitive and at times, nerve-wracking
play, Patrick Hoban achieved the top prize of being
crowned the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG North American Champion, at this
past weekend’s North American World Championship Qualifier
(WCQ) in Chicago. Additionally, Ben Leverett made a name for
himself, by claiming the title of North American Dragon Duel
Champion! Duelists traveled from across the United States
and Canada to this premier-level event hosted by Konami
Digital Entertainment, Inc. (Konami) for a chance to earn
the right to represent North America at the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG

Amid a sea of Yu-G-Oh! TCG Duelists and spectators, the halls of Navy Pier were buzzing with excitement and nervous energy as players from all corners of North America were anticipating their next pairing and weighing their chances for advancing to the next round of play. However, by Sunday afternoon, all eyes were on the two biggest match-ups of the weekend, the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG North American WCQ Final Round and the North American Dragon Duel (open to Duelists born 2000 or later) finals.
Seated across from each other for the North American Dragon
Duel Championship finals were Ben Leverett from Winston,
Georgia and Oliver Tomajko from Croton-on-the-Hudson, New
York. Both of these very talented young players gave it
their all and were truly an inspiration to all Duelists,
young and old! Leverett turned toward his reliable
Dragon Ruler Deck as he confidently completed each move.
Though Tomajko also played deftly with his own Dragon Ruler
Deck, he couldn’t stave off the force of Leverett’s cards
and was defeated, leaving Leverett to proudly raise the
North American Dragon Duel Championship trophy amid the
