At this point I just hope he finds his happiness in his future endeavors.
As for who I'm rooting for in the tournament, I'm torn between Daut and Viper. I want both to do well and would be equally happy with either taking it home. Maybe a bit more if Daut did because that's rarer.
Voted for MbL. He's always been near the top, I strongly believe there was a period of time when he was the closest to Viper of all players but he was always short of individual championships, often due to simple oversights, especially in drafting process. He has the skills to win tournaments and I'd love it if he finally proved it. Especially to himself!
