sh1ro earns career-third MVP at V4 Future Sports Festival
Gambit's star AWPer dominated the opposition in Budapest to secure the individual accolade.
Dmitry "sh1ro" Sokolov has been named the BitSkins.com MVP by HLTV.org of V4 Future Sports Festival on the back of a dominant individual showing throughout the tournament, which saw the AWPer lead Gambit to the title.
The 20-year-old was a menacing presence leading up to the best-of-five grand final especially, recording some astounding statistics in the group stage series against eSuba and the opening series in the playoffs against Enterprise and BIG, putting up three maps above a 2.00 rating and averaging a 1.67 rating overall.
Although sh1ro slowed down in the title decider, he still went on to kick off the title decider against Entropiq with another key performance on Vertigo, helping Gambit get off to an early lead in the series and withstand the attempt at a reverse sweep from their regional rivals.
With the award, the Russian AWPer has added the third MVP medal to his collection, having earned the previous two in Gambit's title-winning runs at IEM Katowice in February and at IEM Fall CIS in October.
