Zehua "Huyahanachann" Zhao has won the March GWENT Open tournament!
Over the weekend, the highest ranked players of GWENT’s Pro Ladder season battled for their share of the $25,000 prize pool and GWENT Masters Crown Points. Huyahanachan managed to reach the Final after winning with two GWENT Masters debutants: Damorquis in the Quarterfinal, and lbdutchboy in the Semifinal.
His opponent in the final best of five was TailBot, who eliminated Adzikov and Kolemoen after a series of intense games. His impressive skills made him a fan-favourite, which showed in the results of the final Twitter poll — over 75% of voters expected him to win the tournament. However, that was not the case — Huyahanachan managed to come out on top with a 3:1 victory, even with his Greatswords Skellige deck being banned after the incredible showing on Day 1.
The final standings for the tournament are as follows:
Zehua "Huyahanachann" Zhao (China) — $9,650
Damian "Tailbot" Kaźmierczak (Poland) — $4,750
