Masters Tour Orgrimmar’s Champion is Crowned!
Masters Tour Orgrimmar reached its thrilling conclusion as Gabriel “Gaby” Jeanne defeated Torben “Viper” Wahl 3-2 to walk away with $25,000 (USD) in prizing! With this stunning victory, Gaby became the youngest Masters Tour champion, outplaying 402 players from over 45 countries to walk away with 22 Masters Tour Points towards promotion to Grandmasters Season 2.
After going 7-2 in Swiss Rounds, Gaby secured his spot in the Top 8 after defeating European Grandmaster David “Frenetic” Neila Quiñones, 3-2. Day 3 started strong, with a 3-1 Quarterfinal victory over Liu “RNGLys” Shuda before a strong 3-1 win against European Grandmaster and former two-time Masters Tour winner Zakarya “xBlyzes” Hail. The final went the full five rounds, as Viper and Gaby traded off wins until they were forced into a Rogue mirror to decide it all. Gaby proved this weekend’s stronger player in an emotional victory.
The first season of Grandmasters continues next weekend where players battle it out for their shot at heading to the 2021 World Championship while avoiding the pitfall of Relegation. There is one Masters Tour left before the top Masters Tour Points earners in each region become eligible for invites to Grandmasters Season 2, when we head to Dalaran June 18 – June 21.
