Poker Stars to compete in HS at BlizzCon
Soon will start the Hearthstone World Championship. 8 of the best players in the world, including our Sebastian “Ostkaka" Engwall, will compete for the world title. The tournament organizers have also prepared a little surprise for all the fans and spectators.
As a special gift to the audience, two series of demonstrative games will be organized at BlizzCon, in order to have some moments to rest between the competitive games. Both the series of games can be watched on Friday November 6th, on Twitch.
In the first series of demonstrative games we will meet two real masters of poker: Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier will face Daniel “Kid Poker” Negreanu to find out who is the best also on this gaming table.
This is not the first participation in a professional tournament for ElkY, in fact in the past he has been a successful Starcraft player. Then he switched to poker and has managed to achieve the “Triple Crown of Poker”, which consists of winning a poker title in the three major poker events: The World Series of Poker, World Poker Tour and European Poker Tour. He loves to cause untold suffering to the enemy, playing with his golden Warlock.
In turn, Daniel Negreanu had the honor of a place in the “Hall of Fame” – he leads the amount of money won in competitions. In addition, Daniel was awarded twice the title of “Player of the Year” during the World Series of Poker and once in the World Poker Tour. Daniel prefers to tear opponents to pieces with powerful spells using his golden Mage.
ElkY and Daniel have been regular customers of the Hearthstone tavern by long time and now they are eagerly waiting the opportunity to test their skills in front of the visitors and spectators of the BlizzCon. You shouldn’t miss these games!
The second series of demonstrative games is a special version of the Challengestone tournament. During the game it will be possible to evaluate the skills of the participants, that will have to make their decks by following unique and very strict rules. Each player will have a limited time to prepare their deck in accordance to the rules to beat the opponents.
