Here Are The Winners From Yesterday’s $500,000 Fortnite Summer Smash

Yesterday, Australia’s largest ever esports competition, the Fornite Summer Smash, took place at Margret Court Arena as part of the Australian Open. With a $500,000 prize pool, and $100,000 for the winner of the solo competition, the rivalry was fierce. Likewise, the afternoon’s Pro-Am, featuring a number of gaming personalities, sport stars and entertainers also saw plenty of action with participants competing for a share of the $100,000 to be donated to a charity of their choice.

In the solo competition, X2Twins Jesse, from the Renegades esports team, claimed the top spot in the points, nabbing three Victory Royales and a second place finish by out-healing his opponents in the final circle. His near-unstoppable strategy bagged him the points need to take and hold top spot so as to claim the $100,000 prize. Araki and NotNaapr place second and third in the overall standings, netting $50,000 each.

Another player on the Renegades roster, Mrfreshasian won the Pro-Am against competitors including DrLupo, Valkyrae, Vikkstar, Lachlan, Lazarbeam, Loserfruit, MrFreshAsian, Muselk, AlexAce and MrWoofless, as well as Dave Hughes and Nick Kyrgios. He won $50,000 for the charity of his choice in what was a dominant display from the Renegades team.

If you missed the action, the stream is available on the Australian Open Twitch archive.
