Along with a excellent crew hosting and calling the event Matt Berkey and the Resolve for Why channel,” said Tapscott after the event wrapped. He also gave a shoutout to the MC’s of the broadcast. “Comedian Clayton Fletcher and WCP’s Associate Producer Alec Rome did a wonderful job.”
Joaquin ‘joaqqoo’ Monetto from Argentina came into the final table as the clear brief stack, and was the very first to fall. Changhyun then knocked out the United Kingdom’s James ‘jdyeti’ Yeatman to narrow the field to four.
