While relatively large fighting game tournaments were taking place in DreamHack Stockholm 2014 and WEGC 2014 this past weekend, the Vietnamese community also came together to put on an event of their own in Saigon Cup 2014. Held in historic Ho Chi Minh City, this event featured a number of notable names, including Razer’s Xian, GamerBee of AVerMedia, Canada Cup Gaming’s Humanbomb, Leslie, Marn, and more, in addition to more local talent.
As such, this Capcom Pro Tour tournament turned out to be incredibly competitive, and eventually only Xian and GamerBee were left to take part in the Ultra Street Fighter IV grand finals. Though he had handily defeated GamerBee earlier in the top eight bracket, Xian soon found himself on the ropes against the Taiwanese competitor’s smothering Adon play.
It was at this point that he revealed his trump card: Poison. Using Ultra’s newcomer, Xian was able to recover very quickly, taking advantage of the Mad Gear’s stifling offense and surging back into battle. Was he able to overcome GamerBee with his secondary character? You’re gonna have to check out the replays below to find out!
