You might try making sure you know all the rules and that you and all the people you are playing with are following them properly.

But other than that, not knowing what cards you're playing with or what decks you're playing against, all I can do to help is provide you to some potentially helpful links regarding the rules, learning to play, basic deckbuilding techniques, and some strategies that have been popular in the past that could give you ideas on ways to build your deck.

Rules as of the Next Destinies set: http://assets23.pokemon.com/assets/cms/pdf/tcg/rulebooks/bw_next_destinies_rulebook.pdf

Learning to Play Tutorials: http://www.pokemontcg.com/tutorials

Basics of Deckbuilding: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=275378

Some TCG Strategies: http://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-trading-card-game/pokemon-trading-card-strategy/

I hope this helps!

The only way to win is taking ALL six prizes.
Unfortunately Lost Zone never caught on =(

I agree with donavannj that you may need to check out the links provided to help you with learning the game and deck construction for tournament purposes.

I thought you could also win if
1) your opponent ran out of cards to draw
2) your opponent doesn't have any pokemon on the bench when you knock out their active pokemon?

Indeed, you are correct. Most long games usually go down to the final prize. Donks don't happen as often anymore due to EX Pokemon with large HP and other basic Pokemon with over 70 hp as starting. A donk is when you kill your opponents active on the first turn when they have no benched Pokemon.
Deck outs can still happen, but most experienced players will use a supporter called "N" in the late game to prevent this from happening, however it can still happen.
What I was implying with my first post was if he's not taking all of his prizes, then that's probably a reason why he is not winning XD
