He wins the second tournaments of this series in a row
On January 23, we had a chance to enjoy Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fights of the esports tournament Smash the Router #4. It had a $1,000 prize pool and was available for players from North America.
DashFight has a post about Smash the Router #3 - so please, check it out. However different the battle for championship was in July, the final result is the same, and Gabriel “Epic_Gabriel” Romero is a two-time router smasher now.
In the Finals, R.O.B. of Epic_Gabriel successfully defeated Ike of Yez, Sheik and Zero Suit Samus of Sharp, and Pikachu of ShinyMark. That was quite a series of win rounds! In fact, Gabriel lost only one round during the whole event - in the starting pools.

Could pro players have divide their zones of interest? For example, BestNess has occupied the Get Clipped events and wins them one after another.
