Daniil Dubov – a.k.a. Scary Surprise – won the Monster Mystery Tournament last night, securing a $500 first prize and the title of most convincing scary clown ever to play online blitz.
Staying true to his costume by wildly bobbing his head throughout the final match, Dubov took down Gawain Jones, a.k.a. Plague Doctor, with a perfect score.
But Dubov wasn’t the only one to win – users tuning in to guess the identities of the players also scored some tricks and treats this Halloween.
