munkka win Finnish DH qualifier
munkka have been crowned champions in Finland, following their victory over Playzone in the Finnish DreamHack Winter qualifier.
Playzone recently made headlines when it became known that Aleksi "allu" Rundberg had decided to end his links with the team in order to rejoin his old squad, munkka.
Mending their loss, the team summoned former 4Kings ace Matti "SPIKEONE" Järvinen to act as a temporarily stand-in.
munkka started out by entering the Losers' Bracket, following a 16-7 loss to ColdSchool, but the team had seemingly no problems when it came to making their way back up to the grand final.

Playzone managed to overcome digifest 2010 winners aNimus in their opening match, and finished off ColdSchool in their following encounter by stating a scoreline of 16-2.
Despite being powered by names such as Järvinen and Jirka "jigetus" Ryhti, Playzone witnessed an old-fashioned steamrolling, as their Finnish rivals sealed wins of 16-4 and 16-3 on de_inferno and de_tuscan, respectively.
