Merlin Schumacher

Hi, my name is Merlin Schumacher. I’m 23 years old and I live in Dortmund (Germany). I’m currently studying Economics and Business Administration. I’ve started playing Yu-Gi-Oh! When the first Yugi & Kaiba Starter Decks were released in German back in the days, I used to play a lot with my friends in school but only started to play competitively in 2007 after I participated in my first Premier Event (German Nationals).

I love Yu-Gi-Oh! and have never regretted that I stayed in the game for so long. Looking back I can’t imagine where I would be right now without all the people I got to know through this game and all the places I was able to visit thanks to the game. I travelled to all European YCS-Events and a couple US-YCS-Events as well, and all those trips have been unique and amazing experiences each on their own. If I go to an event I always try to make the very best of the whole trip, by spending a couple of days before and after the event sightseeing, (food-)shopping and partying!

Apart from Yu-Gi-Oh! I spend my free time studying, playing basketball, or hanging out with my friends from Uni.
