This past weekend saw DreamHack Summer 2011, Sweden’s largest StarCraft II Tournament and LAN party. Progamers from around the globe gathered in Jönköping to try their luck at the 100000.0 SEK (~$15600 USD) prize pool. Almost everyone was betting on the Koreans to win, and with names like July, MC, Moon and Bomber there who could blame them. Shattering everyone’s predictions, it was Team Liquid’s Chris “HuK” Loranger who took home the prize money after beating Moon in the finals with a score of 3-2.
CompLexity’s own Darthozzan (on site working for DreamHack) was able to get a few minutes with the champion.
Congratulations to HuK who had a phenomenal run taking down players like PredY, Socke, July and ultimately Moon.
