Kai Budde is a semi-retired professional Magic: The Gathering player, who holds the record for Pro Tour victories, and for a long time held the records for earnings and lifetime Pro Points. He has won five individual Pro Tour titles and two Team Pro Tour titles (alongside fellow Germans Marco Blume and Dirk Baberowski). Budde won the 1999 Magic World Championship in Tokyo and he has also been awarded a record four Player of the Year titles: 1999, 2001, 2002, and 2003.
Budde also won the 2001 Magic Invitational tournament in Cape Town. His prize was the rare opportunity to design an actual card; the result was Voidmage Prodigy. In 2007, Kai Budde was inducted into the Pro-Tour Hall of Fame.
