Lowly performance in elimination loss
July 6, 2018
Snax finished mousesports' 2-0 loss against ENCE on Wednesday at ESL Cologne.
ANALYSIS
It looks like Snax will need a bit more time to adjust to his new teammates, as he lagged behind a bit in this loss. He had a few nice moments, such as a 3k in Round 6 on Mirage, but he didn't bring the heat enough to help his team pick up the win here. He had the lowest KD in Game 1 on Inferno and was better but still negative on Mirage in Game 2. He had an encouraging start at 19/15 when mouz beat Gambit on Tuesday, but he's looked a bit off since and now mouz's run in Cologne is done.
Gets himself plenty of snacks in this loss
October 30, 2017
Snax finished Virtus.pro's loss against SK Gaming in the grand finals of EPICENTER with a 102/104 KD.
ANALYSIS
Snax almost managed to get his team a big win here against SK Gaming. He was on it with the pistol and any other weapon that he got his hands on through the entirety of this game. This helped his team start off with a 1-0 lead and then force a Game 5 in the end. They may have come up just short in double overtime in that final game, but it was a much better showing than we've seen from them in quite some time.
Dull with loss to Renegades
September 1, 2017
Snax picked up an even 16/16 KD on Day 1 of DreamHack Masters Malmo with a loss to Renegades 16-7.
ANALYSIS
Snax had a very poor start to the first half on the defense, unable to play his usual way of holding down the bombsites. However, his Round 11 hold on the B-bombsite with the AWP earned the team's only round win in the first-half loss 14-1. Snax then started the second half with an A-bombsite entry and a post-plant hold to secure the pistol. From there, Snax picked up a few entry kills to secure a 3-0 start. Snax came back with an anti-eco round win in Round 22, but the celebration ended with a 16-7 loss in the following round.
Loses all his snacks in loss
August 30, 2017
Snax only managed a 7/16 KD in Virtus.pro's loss against Na'Vi on Day 1 of DreamHack Malmo.
ANALYSIS
Snax was unable to do much in this game against Na'Vi to open DreamHack Malmo. From start to finish, the opposition seemed to simply have more to give. Snax was no exception in this, as he didn't pick up a kill until Round 3. While he did tally another two kills in the following round to give his team a win in the first gun round, he didn't do much else for the rest of the 16-4 loss. After finding three kills in the first four rounds, he only found three in the remaining 16 rounds of the game.
Unable to finish strong in loss
July 6, 2017
Snax posted an 18/19 KD on Tuesday in a Virtus Pro loss to Immortals at ESL Cologne.
ANALYSIS
Snax, along with his team, had a smooth start to the defensive side of Cobblestone, silencing Immortals with a 3-0 start. Snax is known to be aggressive and often unpredictable; however, Immortals had him on the run in the mid game of the first half after a Round 4 mishap. Snax managed to hold off for one more round, but the economy depleted and resulted in a loss of rounds and the first half lead. However, Snax earned his stripes in a miniature comeback with a Round 13 quad kill on the A-bombsite retake that eventually led to the 7-7 tie late. Snax ultimately fell short, but still kept the team in the game down 8-7 at the half. The second half was a slower start on the offense, though Snax did manage to pull together a few rounds. Immortals went on to win 16-12. Despite the quick start and the short comeback, Snax posted a low 66.2 ADR in the loss.
Unable to stop G2 in loss
June 9, 2017
Snax posted a 46/40 in Virtus.pro's 0-2 loss to G2 Esports on Thursday in the ECS.
ANALYSIS
Even though his team wasn't able to pick up the win in this series, Snax was the only reason they were even close to victory at any point. He led his team in KD in both games, and was strong in terms of damage as well. Game 1 started off well enough, with Snax picking up six kills in the first four rounds. He managed to touch the AWP early on, which undoubtedly led to their being able to hang with G2 for most of the game. They managed to keep it close early but were easily handled in the second half of the 16-10 loss. It took him awhile in Game 2 to find a multi-kill, but his 3k in Round 10 gave his team their second win in the lopsided first half. While he sometimes does his damage on the AWP, his team's economy was in the gutter all game long, so he didn't get much of a chance to even touch the weapon. They still managed to bring the game all the way to a 30th round, but G2 prevailed to secure the sweep.
Solid performance in draw
May 13, 2017
Snax earned a solid 46/34 KD in Tuesday's 1-1 draw with GODSENT in Week 4 of ECS Season 3.
ANALYSIS
Snax has a solid performance on the defense to start the series on a high note taking the first half up 11-4. Snax quickly took the early advantage with the aggressive plays to put VP ahead. The second half was a bit slow to start, but Snax picked up the kills throughout the half to hold off on the post plants and open his way into the bomb sites for a 16-11 win on Train, posting a solid 23/13 KD and 76.6 ADR. In Game 2, Snax remained consistent on the offense to keep a steady lead in the first half with his Round 12 1-vs-2 clutch on the post-plant to complete the ace for an 8-4 lead. Snax helped the team keep pushing to a 10-5 lead going into the second, but the tides turned in the second half as Snax was unable to hold off the offense of GODSENT for a 16-13 Game 2 loss.
Disappears in Game 2
May 11, 2017
Snax put up a 30/33 KD in Virtus.pro's 1-1 series split with Team EnVyUs in the ECS on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
It was a tale of two games in this series with EnVyUs, as Snax had a great showing in Game 1 before falling flat on his face in Game 2. He started Game 1 with a double and bomb plant in Round 4 for a VP win. He then had another double in a Round 10 loss that saw VP bungle the post-plant situation. From then on, he was very consistent with his frags to keep his team in things. Then in the second half, snax went on a nice run to pick up the 16-12 win. Game 2 was a completely different story. Outside of a double entry frag with the AWP in Round 9, he had nothing to give in the dismantling by EnVyUs. He ended up with just five kills in the 16-2 beating that EnVyUs put on them.
Big plays despite series loss to FaZe
April 26, 2017
snax posted a 25/37 KD on Tuesday in a series loss to FaZe Clan 2-0 in the ESL Pro League Season 5.
ANALYSIS
snax had a slow start in Game 1 of Inferno, picking up only a handful of kills in the early 4-0 deficit. With a couple of rounds put together, snax managed to get a third in for Virtus.pro in Round 9 with a double kill on the B-bombsite to hold off the push from FaZe, cutting the lead in half down 6-3. Then in Round 10, snax broke free for another double-kill hold on the A-bombsite to allow his teammate to defuse and secure the round. snax helped the team even the score at the half down 8-7. However, in the second half of Inferno, snax had another slow start but managed to pick up both Rounds 22 and 23 with a double kill and bomb plant to secure two rounds for Virtus.pro. snax was closed out 16-11 and posted a 16/22 KD and an 83.7 ADR in the Game 1 loss. Game 2 snax managed to pick up a few kill for the defense, though, facing a massive 11-4 deficit at the half. The second half was nothing to show for snax or for Virtus.pro, as the Poles lost five straight for the 16-4 loss on Nuke and snax earned the team a 9/15 KD and 66.6 ADR.
Quiet through 0-2 loss to LDLC
April 11, 2017
Snax posted a 31/39 KD on Tuesday in a tough 0-2 loss to LDLC in the ESL Pro League Season 5.
ANALYSIS
Snax faced a tough battle on Nuke during the Game 1 performance contributing to the first round won, planting the bomb on the A-bombsite on the anti-eco for Virtus Pro after an 0-2 deficit. However, LDLC stole the show from Snax shutting him down wherever he tried an entry or clutch for something in his favor, though they still ended up down 2-13 at the half. Snax contributed to the three rounds won on the defense by holding off the ramp area as well as the pushes into the A-bombsite, but fell within three rounds for a 16-5 loss. In Game 2, Snax looked hungry to start off the first half of Inferno with a huge 7-1 lead in the first half. Snax picked up a few kills and assists holding off the A-bombsite rushes. However, the lead quickly came back to LDLC's favor as Snax was caught off-guard a couple of rounds to allow the A-bombsite to be manageable for an 8-7 lead at the half. The second half got off to an ugly start as LDLC dominated early on the defense, though Snax got a couple of entries that gave some hope for Virtus.pro. However, Snax couldn't find anymore kills to close the half with a tough 16-13 loss, posting a 19/22 KD and 79.9 ADR.
Uncharacteristically off performance in loss
April 5, 2017
Snax tallied a 12/16 KD in Virtus.pro's one-sided 16-2 loss to SK Gaming on Day 3 of the StarSeries Season 3 Finals.
ANALYSIS
While Snax is normally a stalwart for VP when they hit the stage, even he couldn't dig his team out of the massive hole they put themselves in against SK. From start to finish, there was nothing at all that anyone on the team could do to not get pushed all over the map. It's never a good sign when you lead your team with 12 kills, and this game was no different. VP can't let this happen again or else they could be on their way to a swift exit from this tournament.
Consistency the key in big VP win
April 5, 2017
Snax finished Virtus.Pro's win over MVP Project on Tuesday with a KD of 17/9.
ANALYSIS
Snax had a solid enough first half on the T-side of Mirage, picking up good kills as all of Virtus.Pro shined. Snax didn't have much of an extraneous impact throughout the first half, leading to an 11-4 VP lead heading into the second half where Snax showed his considerable CT-side skills. Picking up a quadra kill in Round 18, Snax posted a KD of 17/9 in the win.
Monster performance in series sweep over mouz
March 26, 2017
Snax posted a 44/26 KD on Thursday in a 2-0 series win over mosuesports in the ESL Pro League Season 5.
ANALYSIS
Snax started the day with a huge showing in the first half of Game 1. Though Snax was off to a slow start in the first half of Game 1, his consistency showed as he held the line in Round 6 with a triple kill on the B-bombsite to cut the lead in half 4-2. Snax's efforts sparked the defense to hold off mouz for ten rounds for an 11-4 lead at the half. With one round given up in the second half, Snax capitalized on an impressive anti-eco ACE to win Round 19, eventually taking Game 1 16-5 on Inferno. Game 2 Snax's offense was tested early against the mouz defense on Nuke for a tough 9-6 deficit at the half. However, Snax and team came back on the defense in the second half to hold off for 10 round wins while only allowing two rounds against for a 16-11 Game 2 win. Snax posted a second-best 20/17 KD followed by 77.7 ADR.

Consistent play leads to win over SK
February 19, 2017
Snax finished up Virtus.pro's 2-1 win over SK Gaming in the grand finals of DreamHack Las Vegas on Sunday with a 59/53 KD.
ANALYSIS
Snax was at the bottom of his team in the first half of Game 1, as he couldn't find his opportunity to break into the game. He only had one kill in the first 7 rounds of the game. He got his first clutch in Round 8 when he won a 1-vs-1 against coldzera. After this, they were forced into too many saves and couldn't stand up to the strong rotations from SK. He closed the half with a ridiculous 4k on the AWP to end things on a bit of a positive note. That ended up being the single consolation prize for VP here as they were unable to do much of anything else in the second half. Sure, they found three round wins, but you never thought they there was a real chance that SK lost this game. He opened up the pistol round of Game 2 with a 3k to get his team off to a nice start. Despite getting a 3k to start Round 2 nicely, coldzera clutched a 1-vs-2 to take the round and start a run from SK. He was an absolute monster for VP in the first half, ending with 20 kills to give his team a 9-6 lead at the half. He continued to add in timely kills here and there to help his team come up with the 16-11 win to force Game 3. Snax once again was playing extremely well from the start in Game 3, picking up a 3k in Round 2 to put VP up 2-0. His play ended up falling off a bit in the later rounds, but this time he got support from his team. Both TaZ and pasha came in clutch when it mattered to help lock up this win.
