Nerchio to compete in Gigabyte Nvidia Invitational
Gigabyte Nvidia Invitational #1
Fresh from his recent victory at the Homestory Cup V, our very own Artur 'Acer | Nerchio' Bloch has been announced as one of eight players competing in the Gigabyte Nvidia Invitational #1. The tournament will feature top talent from Europe and Korea, competing in a best-of-five single elimination bracket for their share of 1,000 Euros in prize money.
Three other players have been announced so far: The Finnish Terran Absolute Legends Naama, Romanian Protoss fnatic NightEnD and Korean Terran TSL Polt. Four further players are set to be announced, along with the tournament bracket, on Thursday.
The tournament will be running on the 13th and 14th of July - that's this weekend, Friday and Saturday. The first round of eight match will begin at 1700 CEST, with the next match starting one and a half hours later. That means the day is expected to end at 2300 CEST, for a solid six hours of StarCraft II action. The semifinals will take place on Saturday starting at 1300 CEST, with the grand finals scheduled for 17:30 CEST. For the full schedule, check out the source link below.
Nerchio will be looking to prove his Homestory Cup championship was no fluke, and with his recent form even the healthy field of competitors from both Europe and Korea might not be able to stand in his way. It should be an interesting tournament, so definitely tune in and cheer on our Team Acer Zerg!
