Rdu wins DreamHack Summer 2016
DreamHack Summer 2016 concluded yesterday and Dima "Rdu" Radu of G2 eSports is the winner of the event, cashing $8,000 and 15 HCT points.
Rdu managed to win the whole thing after making his way through the 16-man playoffs. Firstly, he faced Kobe "Guukboii" Van Schepdael, a lesser known Belgian player winning him in just a close 3-2, proceeding to the top 8 where he would win with a 3-1 against Torpedo Gaming's Geroge "BoarControl" Webb. Rdu had a hard time in the semi-finals against Na`Vi's Frederik "Hoej" Nielsen managing to slip away once again with a close 3-2. The finals seemed a bit easier for Rdu, winning with a score of 3-1 against Frank "Fr0zen" Z., a player that used to play for Hearthlytics until their disband.
With this win Rdu is the only two time DreamHack champion for Hearthstone and this also puts him in the club of players who have managed to win repeat franchise victories, with Firebat's Gfinity trophies and ThijsNL's European Championships.
