Smash Summit 7 Melee Finals – Hungrybox vs Leffen
The Smash Summit 7 Grand Finals for Melee came down to a battle between two of the absolute best Smash Bros Melee players, Juan “Hungrybox” Debiedma and William “Leffen” Hjelte.
The two took fairly different routes to the finals. Hungrybox went undefeated in the Winner’s Bracket, taking out Zain (3-2), Wizzrobe (3-1), and Mang0 (3-1) along the way.
After beating Bananas (3-2) then losing to Mang0 (2-3) in the Winner’s Bracket, Leffen fought his way through the Loser’s Bracket. He beat Axe (3-1), Wizzrobe (3-0), and got his vengeance on Mang0 (3-2) to face Hungrybox in the Grand Finals.
However, Hungrybox took the final matchup with ease, beating Leffen’s Fox with Jigglypuff 3-1 to become the Smash Summit 7 Winner.
