History was made on Feb 2 in the largest Esport Typing Tournament in many years, with a prize pool of ~$2000 and a live stream viewer count of 270 max. It was a grueling and exhausting battle of the ages (literally). The age discrepancy between the youngest and oldest competitors was nearly 30 years, and you couldn't tell just from watching the typing. It pitted the upcoming Nitrotype Generation against the elites of 10FF and Typeracer - and we were not disappointed. Ultimately, the advantages of youth may have been a deciding factor.

The 16-year-old Chak fought back from 3 grueling sets down to wear down an exhausted Sean Wrona at 3:30am EST and claim the Championship. The viewing audience reached nearly 200 live viewers and averaged ~140. The final battle could have gone either way and both finalists should be proud.
