Marcus "Thorzain" Eklöf came back from a 0-1 score against Polt to eventually defeat him 3-1, claiming the crown of Dreamhack Eizo Open Stockholm and the 70,000 SEK that go with it.
This is the second time Thorzain makes it to a DH finals as last year he reached the last round of Valencia Invitational but losing it 2-3 to DongRaeGu. This Sunday, however, sees a different outcome as the Swede ploughed through Cytoplasm, Socke, Monster and Polt in the playoffs and grabbed the Stockholm gold with a total of 15-2 in day two.
Thorzain is also the first ever Swedish player to win a DreamHack event and the first European champion since Naama's victory at Dreamhack Winter 2010.
Next on event's schedule is DreamHack Summer in June 16-19 in Jönköping, Sweden.
