Snax joins GamerLegion
Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski makes a return to tier-one competition after three and a half years in the lower echelons.
GamerLegion have announced the addition of Snax to the Counter-Strike roster. The 30-year-old Pole joins the team to take over in-game leadership after the organization parted ways with Sanzhar "neaLaN" Iskhakov on Thursday.
Best known for playing as part of Poland's most storied and successful team, Virtus.pro, Snax has mostly competed for local teams on the lower echelons of Counter-Strike for the past three and a half years.
Since he departed his long-time home in 2020, the four-time top-20 player's only appearance at a big tournament was at IEM Dallas 2022. Snax stood in for ENCE at the American event and helped them make a surprise run to the grand final.
This earned him praise from Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer, who not only said ENCE would pick Snax up had they had a permanent spot on the team at the time, but also gave the Pole a serious consideration when they were looking for a replacement for Lotan "Spinx" Giladi a few months later.
It has taken over a year for Snax to reappear on the radar, but now he joins a tier-one team again at a time of great change in the scene with the shift to Counter-Strike 2 underway.
