StarCraft Pro Foiled By His Biggest Foe Yet: A Champagne Bottle

You might think the grand finals are the hardest part of any eSport tournament, but for some players that's not the case. Korean StarCraft II player TaeJa, who -- after winning 17 tough matches at Dreamhack -- got defeated by the champagne bottle. He was simply unable to open it.

And since it's not the first time something like this happened, a Twitter user called 'DreamHack Champagne' even tweeted about its fourth success.

This happens all the time. Sometimes the winners are lucky with the bottle, sometimes not. You could say this is the real final challenge at Dreamhack:
