Player Bio
Zen Takahashi qualified for his first Pro Tour when he was just 13 years old, winning an Extended PTQ with Elves. At the age of 15, he competed in his first Grand Prix where he finished 11th. He then used those winnings to attend Grand Prix Sydney in 2013, where he made Top 4, beating reigning Pro Tour Champion Stanislav Cifka in the Quarter Finals to qualify for Pro Tour Dragon's Maze.

Most recently, he has made Top 8 of three of the last four Australian Grand Prix. He currently boasts a 72% win rate on the Grand Prix circuit, with 4 Top 8s in 15 lifetime appearances. He also has one of the highest Draft win rates on the Grand Prix circuit in the world, with an 83% win rate. He is currently a Silver Pro for the 2016 - 2017 season, and is just two points short of renewing it for another season!
