To celebrate Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken's ESL One New York 2018 MVP award by HLTV.org and betway, our video editor Anton "Molen" Koev has put together a compilation with some of the player's best moments.

The 18-year-old earned the first MVP medal of his career after a great display at ESL One New York, where he boasted the highest rating of the tournament at 1.36. Even though Liquid could not beat mousesports in the grand final, Twistzz topped the scoreboard with an impressive 1.34 rating.

My friend listen up. U have to look deeper then just the stats. How many times did Elige or nitro get killled trying to run to the site that taco was holding and got ran over on. Way to many. Naf yes had bad series but then again he hold b with taco on some maps. Poor guy had no backup cuz taco was dead already.

2018-10-17 18:57
He is not nr 1 in the World like Device, he is still in top 5 in the World, nice Young player.
2018-10-17 18:57
device 1? 0/8
2018-10-17 19:12
I mean...he's #2 after s1mple, but to argue that the second-best player could be #1 is hardly 0/8. 0/8 would be something like...suggesting Coldzera is #1 at the mo or something.
2018-10-17 19:27
No it’s 0/8 because even if he is second he isn’t close to being the best player in the world
2018-10-17 19:41
and whos saying device is top1? ROFLMAO

No one's gonna talk about how bad that frag movie was? Is whoever made that a new editor? It really doesn't match with HLTV's usual very professional style.
2018-10-17 22:25
Whoever made that video needs to adjust his brightness / contrast settings on his monitor. Isnt it the minimum required for a video maker ?
2018-10-17 23:19
colours are awful... wtf great event for twistzz though dam!
