Seven-time winner of the Classic Tetris World Championship in Portland, OR, Jonas Neubauer took second-place at the competition this past weekend.
As reported by Kotaku, Neubauer was bested by 16-year-old Joseph Saelee, who won in three-game streak during a best-of-five series.
“The kid played with pure heart, the most clutch Tetris that we’ve seen from anyone,” Neubauer said. “He just really had the ability, had the natural ability, and let it shine as bright as he could in his first tournament.
truly an honor to pass the torch to the new generation of Tetris players.”
