Jason Klaczynski after winning the 2008 World Championships
Jason Klaczynski, born October 10, 1985, is the only player of the Pokémon Trading Card Game to win two World Championships, once in 2006 and again 2008. In addition, Klaczynski won the 2000 Tropical Mega Battle in Hawaii at the age of fourteen.
Notable tournament performances
Klaczynski has played professional poker for over five years. He also spent time studying to work in law enforcement.
- Mew is his favorite Pokémon, because many Mew cards "have a unique ability that adds to the depth of the game."
- Klaczynski does not participate in any aspects of Pokémon outside of the TCG. He used to enjoy the games when he was younger, but moved away from them as his schedule tightened.
- Klaczynski has met his three best friends through the TCG.
- While performing exceedingly well at smaller tournaments and World Championships, he has had a noticeable lack of success at the U.S. National Championships. He attributes this primarily to bad luck.
