Gaimin Gladiators hard support Melchior “Seleri” Hillenkamp remains in awe after his team kept its Riyadh Masters 2023 dreams alive following a grueling win over BetBoom in the lower bracket quarterfinals.
The three-time Major winners lost the opener in a lopsided manner before Anton “dyrachyo” Shkredov took over in the next two games to complete Gaimin Gladiators’s massive bounce back attempt.
Seleri said in a tweet that it’s pretty hard to believe that his team is still alive in the tournament. This is why he vowed to make the most out of the experience and expressed his belief that his team can come out of the tournament as champions.
“Hard to believe that we are still in it. Will keep on believing and enjoying the moment,” said Seleri.
