California Teen Beats 7-Year Reigning Champion at Tetris World Championship 2018

The Tetris World Championship 2018 wrapped up in two extremely intense moments when Joseph Saelee, a 16-year-old from California, not only managed to beat a legend in the classic NES game, but also took the crown from seven-year reigning champion Jonas Neubauer.

Saelee, who only wanted to qualify for the tournament to meet his idol “Tetris” players, almost did not make it to the grand finals. According to Kotaku, he was faced with Japanese grandmaster Koryan in the semi-finals.
