EnDerr rules SEAG Starcraft II as AK falls to Thai in Tekken

The Philippines continued its medal rush in the 30th Southeast Asian Games esports on Tuesday evening.

Caviar “EnDerr” Acampado dominated the StarCraft II competition, capturing gold to add to Sibol’s stacked campaign at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan City.

Acampado fended off Thomas “Blysk” Kopankiewicz of Singapore, wrapping up the best-of-seven championship series in five games.

Meanwhile, Sibol’s Alexandre Gabrielle “AK” Laverez could not overcome Thailand’s Nopparut “Book” Hempamorn in the gold medal match of the Tekken 7 event.

Playing on the wrong end of the Fighters Gaming Club (FGC) rules, Laverez — who came from the losers’ finale — was faced with a twice-to-beat disadvantage against the Thai.

Despite the handicap, Laverez was able to draw first blood in an Akuma mirror match against Hempamorn, 3-2, to go up with a 1-0 series lead.

Another Akuma mirror match ensued in Game Two, but this time, the visitor swept Laverez to even the scores at 1-1.

Both players picked Akuma once again, as Hempamorn went on to take Game Three.

With his back against the wall, Laverez summoned his best pick in Shaheen in Game Four. It ,paid dividends as the Filipino Tekken star evened out the series only to drop Game Five, 1-3, and surrender the gold to Hempamorn.

Filipino Andreij Hosea “Doujin” Albar — whom Laverez defeated to earn his slot in the finals — completed the podium.
