Leffen winner at DreamHack Winter

Posted on: Dec 03, 2018 By smartlaunch in News and trends,

On Sunday, some of Europe’s finest players took the stage at DreamHack Winter 2018 in Jönköping, Sweden. And though top seed William “Leffen” Hjelte primarily used his secondary Falco during the tournament, the Team SoloMid-sponsored Swede still took first at the event, defeating Spanish Peach Álvaro “Trif” García Moral in a hard-fought grand finals.

Leffen’s path to victory was far from easy. Trif, who in February defeated Leffen’s secondary Marth to win Phoenix Blue, took the Swede to the brink this time as well, defeating his Falco with a decisive 3-0 in the first set of the grand finals. To gain his berth in the winner’s side of the grand finals, Leffen went on a winner’s bracket run through Matthias “RedBlaze” Ohlsson, Jacob “Daydee” Stenberg, and Trif, who he defeated by 3-1 in the winner’s finals.

For his own run to the winner’s finals, Trif defeated Andreas “Jadde” Henriksson before overcoming Christopher “Humpe” Falck, who had defeated Trif’s countryman, the Sheik main Roberto “Overtriforce” Iglesias, in order to make it into the winner’s semifinals. To Overtriforce’s credit, the Spaniard made a prodigious loser’s bracket run, defeating Jadde, Daydee, and Niklas “Poppmaister6000” Hallgren (who defeated Humpe in the preceding round) to make it into the loser’s finals, where he fell to Trif for a third-place finish.
