|| In the fifth and final round of the 2021 Tak Open, the reigning 2020 Tak Champion Fwwwwibib continued his dominance of elite Tak play and showed why he is considered by many to be the current best Tak player. He swept his final match 2-0 against rising player Alion02, which secured Fwwib a 1st place finish with 37 points.
After a relatively easy start to the tournament, Fwwib took on tougher competition and split matches with Ally, Abyss, and ManaT. By taking a win and a draw in Round 4 against NohatCoder, he came away with one extra point than expected and more separation from his closest competitors.
Who will join Fwwib on the podium is uncertain as of this time. With only a single match to be played in the final round, Abyss is #2 on the leaderboard with 32 points, Ally at #3 with 31, and PlutoTheBrave, ManaT, and NohatCoder all within striking distance of a top 4 finish with 29 points each.
Fwwib is also the first Tak player to win the USTA Tak Open back-to-back. Retired player SultanPepper won the inaugural USTA Tak Open in 2016, followed by NohatCoder in 2018, and Fwwib in 2020.
