Hungrybox becomes three-time Summit champion after winning Smash Summit 9

For just the second time in nine tournaments, one player has claimed a third Smash Summit title. Juan “Hungrybox” Debiedma took home a close grand finals set against Justin “Plup” McGrath at Smash Summit 9 today.

The only other player to win more than two Summit events was Adam “Armada” Lindgren, who won the first four Smash Summits and took second at two others before retiring and returning to commentate the event. 

And not only did Hbox get even closer to reaching Armada’s record, he also became the first player in Summit history to go 15-0 in pools, not dropping a single match to some of the best players in the world. That didn’t last long into the main bracket, however. He dropped at least one game to each opponent he played after that, but it was still a dominant performance.
