PREMIER EVENT: Taipei Major 2019

Taipei Major 2019, held in Taipei, Taiwan from June 8th through 9th, is in the books and Japan's FUDOH|Fujimura has taken 1st place! Fujimura made it all the way to Grand Finals through the Winners bracket after defeating Japan's RED BULL Hx|Bonchan in Winners Finals 3-1.

CYG BST|Fuudo, also from Japan, was put into Losers bracket in a 1-3 loss to Fujimura in Winners semi-finals. Fuudo would eliminate Taiwan's XGEAR|YoYoTai (3-1), Japan's legendary ROHTO Z!|Tokido (3-2) and finally Bonchan (3-1) on his way to meet Fujimura in Grand Finals.

Fuudo, who in previous seasons used R.Mika primarily, has added a formidable Birdie to his arsenal while Fujimura used his tried and true Ibuki. The battle between the two went as you would expect with players of this caliber. Fujimura would use Ibuki's ranged kunai attacks and mix-ups while Fuudo's Birdie got a lot of mileage out of EX headbutt and other big damage attacks. Fujimura took a 2-1 lead but Fuudo, no stranger to the pressure of a Premier Event Grand Finals, tied it up 2-2. The final match was a thrilling one with both players having bursts of momentum and clutch moves. It came down to the final round of the match to decide the winner, with Fujimura using an instant overhead to finish off Fuudo and win the event.

This is Fujimura's first Premier Event win of the season. His previous best was a 7th place finish back at NorCal Regionals in late March. He did have a Ranking Event win prior to Taipei Major with a 1st place at the FV x SEA Major also in late March. This win gives Fujimura 700 valuable points on the leaderboard standings. Congratulations to FUDOH|Fujimura on his big win at Taipei Major 2019! Now let's take a look at the full Taipei Major 2019 results for top 48!
