Av3k wins GameGune 2008 in a 4 overtime thriller

ImageThe three day GameGune 2008 Quake 3 tournament has came to a well deserved end, with the Polish wonder boy Av3k taking the first place and RazerJ second. Both earning 3000 and 2000 euros respectively.

The boy wonder Maciej 'av3k' Krzykowski made himself an "easy" path for the victory as he defeated his opponents in the upper bracket. In the Grand Final he met the Chinese super rocket Zhibo 'Fan Zhibo' Fan.

This wasn't their first match-up in the tournament as they both had the honour to meet each other in the winner bracket finals, but the not-so-young anymore Pole took the upper hand and secured him the easy part of Grand Final with a 2:1 victory.

But when it came to the Final match of the tournament, RazerJ surely made an impression that he will win it. He destroyed his opponent in the first set of BO3 with 16:5 on ZTN3Tourney1 and 21:11 on pro-Q3DM6.

However things changed in the second set. The first game of this set could be one of tournaments must see as the first map lasted for 4 scoreless Overtimes. In the end Av3k broke the silent spree and won the map with the score 8:7 (ZTN3Tourney1).

In the second map Av3k seemed to have gone berserk as he didn't want to give his opponent a single frag and even kept him on a negative score for a while. And only when it was sure that the Pole has secured himself a win, RazerJ got 5 frags and finished the game with 4:22 (pro-Q3DM6).

The results of the tournament can be found here.
