This weekend the third Gwent Challenger takes place! From the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine, players will play for their share of the $100,000 prize pool, Crown Points and a ticket to Gwent World Masters in January 2019.
If you're looking for some new faces, this event has only a single one to offer: the qualifier winner "I_aPOROgise" from Australia. A regular at the top of the Pro Ladder leaderboard, but first time tournament participant.
He'll face tough competition with FreddyBabes, TailBot, SuperJJ, Adzikov, Kolemoen, Cmel and Hanachan all returning to the stage.
The event starts on Saturday, April 28th at 16:00 CEST and continues the next day!

Casters & Hosts
Casters for the event are the familiar bunch, this time supported by Swim and Jaggerous as analysts and Jesse Cox as host! Michelle Morrow was announced earlier as a second host but had to cancel due to a knee surgery.
CD Projekt Red compiled some interesting profiles about each of the players, featuring their past accomplishments and Pro Ladder performance.
We'll have all the decklists available here after the event is over!
The first day of the event with all round 1 matches starts on Saturday, April 28th at 16:00 CEST and continues the next day at the same time on the CD Projekt Red Twitch channel.
