The sixth Online Tournament is over and Trelleborg was able to go home today with one more gold medal. The final match against Valtra was a solid 2:0 which was very close for both teams but in the end, the team from Sweden saved their spot in the 1st place.
The tournament opened with Astragon going against Bednar, both teams with players that can't be dismissed and after two close games, Astragon moved onward into the half-final.
In the second game, we saw champion Trelleborg defeat Hörmann, ensuring that they would go against Astragon in the half-final.

This would be Krone against mYinsanity, a close set of two matches which the swiss eSports Team decided for themselves.
The first half-finals match was Astragon against Trelleborg.

On the other side of the half-finals, Valtra took up the challenge of mYinsanity. Here, Martin from Valtra has shown to consistently deliver 139 points First Bales without seeming to break a sweat. mYinsanity managed to hold their ground but once the dust settled, Valtra moved on to their match against Trelleborg.
Where in the last tournament, Valtra fought against Corteva and won, this time they had to content with Trelleborg, the other #1 of the League. Would they be victorious too today? Or will Trelleborg assert themselves?
Both teams did their best, two amazing matches, with ups and downs. Martin from Valtra broke his 139 First Bale Streak. They gave their all but once the 15-minute timer reached 00:00 for the second time, the winner was clear: Trelleborg snatched another golden medal and secured their top spot in the ladder, with Valtra becoming the clear 3rd.
