It’s a hot season for the fighting games esports
Street Fighter V professionals continue playing in qualifiers for the upcoming tournament Capcom Cup 2020. Two weeks ago, we witnessed matches in the East Europe and Middle East region. And on September 19-20, the fighting games community enjoyed Capcom Pro Tour South East Asia 2.
There were 72 attendees at this online event. First, they fought in the starting pools and then in the Top 16 part.

Of course, the most interesting Street Fighter matches usually happen in the final stages of esports tournaments.
Kun Xian Ho entered the Top 8 part through the Winners Bracket. In the Winners Semi-Final, he defeated Tjie “Oswald” Wai kit (3:2). The Winners Final was easier for Xian - he won against Gavrel “Bravery” Saw (3:0). The Grand Final turned out to be much tougher! Xian again fought Bravery, who returned from the Losers Bracket. The first match ended with the victory of Bravery (2:3). Then, Xian managed to return to the top in the Gran Final Reset (3:1). Congratulations!
