PGL WTT: Hoej to playoffs!

 

PGL Winter Tavern Tales 2015 fighting is going on! Yesterday the second group stage was played, and 32 players received a chance to continue competing over the title of the champion. Today we have seen the third group stage. It featured a huge number of amateur players who wanted to try themselves out in the battles against profesionals, so the groups ended up rather uneven. However, each professional player still had high chances to advance to the playoffs. 

 

 

Our guys Germany Sebastian "Xixo" Bentert and Denmark Frederik "Hoej" Nielsen successfully passed the first group stage and and moved on to the second one. The groups were quite convenient to perform well, since they haven’t featured any famous players apart from our guys. But as we all know, Hearthstone is full of surprises.

 

After the first two matches, Xixo was eliminated from the tournament. He lost 1:3 to International Evilahab in the first game, and then was defeated by Romania Alinro in elimination match. The list of achievements of this Romanian player includes only the victory at online tournament Go4Hearthstone Europe Cup # 10. Such a turn of events came as a surprise for many fans, since Sebastian has been playing extremely nice lately, and pleased his fans with many wonderful victories. But don’t be upset! Many big tournaments, where he’ll have a chance to shine, are still ahead.

After the elimination of Sebastian, all hopes of Ukraine Natus Vincere fans were pinned on Denmark Frederik «Hoej» Nielsen. He encountered his group rivals and overall did an excellent job, winning both games with a 3:1 score. He took the first place in group and secured a spot in the third group stage.

The third group stage was played today, and all our attention was focused on Denmark Hoej. The match day for him started from a loss against the very first rival, and he dropped into the Losers bracket, one defeat away from the elimination. We all were nervously waiting, since it would be very sad if the Born to Win would missed the playoff of such a great tournament. Denmark Hoej was perfectly aware of it, so he tried very hard to win. The remaining two matches were extremely intense: he has managed to outplay International Crimson with a close 3:2 score, and then took a win in a decider match against International Thepizzaguy (3:2), securing his well deserved place in playoffs!
