DreamHack Summer 2011 Recap
This memorable weekend of fun, excitement and great games has come to an end. Thousands of spectators, both live at DreamHack itself and watching the free high-quality live streams, witnessed countless strong performances and exciting upsets that produced some of the best games to have ever been played in StarCraft II.
The dust has settled. The dreams of 47 top StarCraft II players were crushed; one stood above the rest to claim the title and the 100,000 SEK first prize. After a nail-biting final, which went to the fifth game and was a true display of psychological warfare, Canadian Chris “LiquidHuK” Loranger and his protoss forces managed to narrowly beat the zerg swarm of South Korean Jang “Moon” JaeHo. Congratulations to the newly nicknamed “DreamHuK”, who withstood the pressure and showed amazing skill and stamina to remain undefeated throughout the Championship.
