Snax to replace Spinx at IEM Dallas

ENCE are going to the US with a stand-in.

News about IEM Dallas continue to appear, and this time ENCE reported about the problems.

ENCE announced that Lotan "Spinx" Giladi would miss IEM Dallas. The problem is still the same - the inability to apply for a visa. Spinx did not manage to get a visa to the USA, which is why he will not participate in the $250,000 tournament.

He will be replaced by Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski. The veteran has not performed on the tier-1 stage for a long time, participating in tier-2 and tier-3 events. Despite this, Snax is a former Major champion.

This substitution will hit the Finnish team hard. Spinx is the best player in the squad with an average rating of 6.8. The Israeli showed a particularly bright performance at PGL Major Antwerp 2022, setting a record for personal rating in a match with 9z - 9. At the same time, Snax performs more modestly, his average rating on the tier-2 and tier-3 stages is 6.1.
