Cards lay strewn across the table in the Bradner family’s home, their glossy fronts facing upward revealing symmetrical symbols and names like Joltik, Gardevoir and Darkrai.
They thrum in the air, arcing between the fingers of mile-a-minute talking Isaiah Bradner, 13, as he shuffles the numerous stacks he has compiled in front of him.
Though he has only been playing the Pokemon Trading Card Game (TCG) competitively for a year, Isaiah, who plays in a senior division comprised of 11 to 16-year-olds, is currently ranked 10th in the world and seventh in North America, as of Monday.
