How did you spend Thanksgiving weekend this year? Did you have time between eating all sorts of tasty stuff for watching fighting esports events? No worries, DashFight got you covered - we always keep an eye on interesting tournaments and inform our readers about everything worthy of your attention.
Let’s take a look at the SSBU event Get Clipped #5 - Thanksgiving Special. It took place online on November 28 with 512 attendees. Quite a few prominent personalities of Smash Ultimate esports participated in the tournament, so it was a pleasure to watch them fighting.
Enrique “Maister” Hernandez won all his matches in the Top 64 part and entered the Top 8 one through the Winners Bracket. He defeated Erik “Erik” Haugen in the Semi-Final (3:0) and Tohru in the Winners Final (3:1). His opponent in the Grand Final was Tanner “SKITTLES!!” Jordan.
For SKITTLES!!, the road to the Grand Final of Get Clipped #5 was tougher. After the initial pools, he fell into the Losers Brackets and needed five victories in Top 64 and four wins in Top 8 to reach the Grand Final. SKITTLES!! defeated Will “DKwill” W. in Round 1 (3:2), Kiyarash “Kiyarash” Younessi in the Losers Quarter-Final (3:0), Spencer “BestNess” Garner in the Losers Semi-Final (3:2), and Tohru in the Losers Final (3:0).
Both players in the Grand Final battled their best and both had a chance for winning. Still, Maister demonstrated a bit better game and won 3:1. Congratulations!
