FaZe Clan professional Fortnite players Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore have won the seventh running of the KEEMSTAR ‘Friday Fortnite’ celebrity tournament.
The pair beat out popular YouTuber ‘Avxry’ and Team SoloMid content creator and former Gears of War pro player ‘HighDistortion’ in the Grand Final to claim the $10,000 grand prize and become the first two players to win the competition three times.
Having already beat Avxry and HighDistortion to win the Winners Bracket, Tfue and Cloak needed to only win one match in the Grand Final to secure the championship, whereas the other pair needed two.
In the first game of match one, the FaZe duo managed to build a 20-13 lead, meaning that their opponents needed at least 7 more kills in the second game to stay alive.
However, despite racing to a 6-0 lead in the second game, Avxry and HighDistortion both got eliminated, giving FaZe the 20-19 match one victory and the championship.

The victory meant that Tfue and Cloak were the first players to win Friday Fortnite for an unprecedented third time, while no other players have managed to win it more than once.
On the other side of the coin, it was heartbreak once again for Avxry, who has gone deep in nearly every tournament, including a Grand Final appearance in Week 1, but has not managed to secure a championship.
