Lovelychook wins the CN vs EU Ferrari California
Yesterday, Newbee's Zhang "lovelychook" Bohan managed to win the biggest prize ever given in a Hearthstone tour by walking away with €20,000 and a Ferrari California worth $162,000.
The way to victory seemed easy at the playoffs where he won against both Breath and SuperJJ with a 3-0 score, but in the finals, Kolento gave him a hard time. Kolento managed to win their first match-up with his Paladin against Lovelychook's Shaman. That Shaman, however, took a revenge by winning against Kolento's Rogue in the next game and drawed the score to 1-1. Next game, Kolento's Valeera managed to beat Lovelychook's Mage and get the 2-1 lead, setting himself only one win away from the championship. Nevertheless, in the last matchup of Kolento's Hunter vs Lovelychook's Mage, a lucky Yogg-Saron summoned an Elemental Destruction, clearing Kolento's side on the board, sealing the win for Lovelychook, who would then proceed to win once again against the Ukrainian's Hunter and end the series with at a close 3-2.
Despite losing, Kolento still walked away with €10,000 as a runner-up. In the third place decider, Ostkaka won over SuperJJ with a score of 3-1. So after this third event, the score in the CN vs EU series is 2-1 in favour of EU, and the Chinese showed that they are not to be underestimated. Everyone is definitely eager to see how the fourth event of the series will turn out, and if China will be able to win once again over Europe to even out the series score.
