With a sweet $5,000 on the line during the open bracket, PNDA Gaming outlasted the competition and will leave St. Louis with $3,000 guarenteed. It's baffling how the team of Ryan "RyaNoob" Geddes, Faisal "Goofy" Khan, Scottie "Cloud" Holste, and Gabriel "Gabriel" Funes-Soto came in ranked #27 in the open bracket, but nevertheless, they ran the table here.
