Snax: "The victory tastes very good"

We caught up with the MVP, Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski, after Virtus.pro came out victorious at DreamHack Masters Las Vegas to get his thoughts on his and his team's journey to the title.

Virtus.pro began the grand final with SK with a loss on Cobblestone, but a strong showing on Train evened out the series. It came down to Mirage, where the Poles climbed back from a 8-12 deficit to clinch the title.

After the final, we grabbed Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski, who received the HLTV MVP by ZOWIE award, for an interview about the series.

I legit never hear him speaking before this event.
2017-02-20 09:02
looks like he never was confident to do interviews but he's got fired in this event, getting better in each interview.
2017-02-20 09:05
Haha Finally a Snax interview. Everyone on the VP roster is such a character. Love them and SK.
2017-02-20 09:04
he did in this tournament one, then he twitted he wont do anymore because people laugh at him. Im glad he did! VP x Snax <3

I usually root for NA teams like optic, liquid, c9. But VP put on a hell of a show. I've been a huge fan of these players since 1.6 when taz and neo were up and comers with pentagram. They are true legends in this game. Always fun to watch. Unbelievable how clutch they are when they are under pressure
2017-02-20 10:11

They deserve so much. OFC i was rooting for SK, but if there is any team that deserved this, it was VP. Its nice to see those guys together for so long and in such a high lvl of play. VP will allways be the final boss of CSGO.
2017-02-20 13:17
gg but if SK won this thread would've been full of BR saying "hello VP fangays" or 'mom SK is cheating Kappa' or anything like that. I don't have anything against you as I am speaking in general.

The CSGO community is filled with childs. The majority of it. That is not exclusive of brazilians. You can look at other comments (above and below) and you see it's all the same... OFC my team of heart is SK, but VP deserves this more than anyone.

Keep Snax out of food for two days then play Major EZ
