Billy Bernacchia’s team wins the CSP Brasil
Any trip that starts with a first class upgrade on a ten-hour flight to Brasil is certainly a good start. I knew it was going to be a great trip, but then again when isn’t going to South America a good time… My team started off well by winning three of our four preliminary matches (4-0) and tied the other (2-2). This put us tied for first with Mercenarios and allowed us to move on to the next round of the tournament.
We drew the Jungle Boyz in the semifinals, who were playing at a high level during the prelims. My team ended up beating them by a single point in an extremely tough match! From there we moved on to the finals in a matchup against the home team Mercenarios. They had my good friend Ryan Greenspan guesting with them and I knew it was going to be a great game. It turned out to be an epic battle that we barely won in overtime. This gave us the well-deserved win and the first place hardware.
South American teams have been steadily improving and stepping up there game, which made this win very difficult. I just want to give a shout out to Dye for my wonderfully reliable NT that shot amazing all event! Also I would like to compliment the Jungle Boyz who gave us such strong competition and then of course the Mercenarios!
Hope to see you all in Chile!!!
