Fwwwwibib is ‘Taking Home the Gold’ in U.S. Tak Open
Fwwib has been a long-time member and top player in the Tak community. His second place finish in 2018 - coming up just short against NohatCoder - and his more recent second place finish in the COVID-19 Cup, solidified his position as a strong contender in this year’s tournament. He has maintained a top rank among human players on the unofficial rankings throughout recent years, and has been widely recognized as a high-level player. This is Fwwib’s first tournament since 2017* where he is taking home the gold. Or in this case, taking home a sleek stone Tak set.
NohatCoder has taken second place and, at the time of publication, third place is tied between Nqeron and Nitzel and will be decided by a blitz tie-breaker. That game is expected to take place sometime this week.
