FaZe Clan professional Fortnite players Turner 'Tfue' Tenney and Dennis 'Cloak' Lepore have won the ninth running of the KEEMSTAR 'Friday Fortnite' celebrity tournament.
The pair beat out the TeamSolomid pro duo of Ali 'Myth' Kabbani and Darryle 'Hamlinz' Hamlin to secure the $10,000 grand prize and win the competition for an unprecedented fourth time.
Having already beat Myth and Hamlinz in the Winners Bracket finals, Tfue and Cloak needed to win only one match in the Grand Final, whereas their opponents needed two.
The first match started off quickly in FaZe's favor, as they managed to grab a 23-12 elimination lead after the first game.
The 11 kill deficit proved to be too steep to overcome for TSM as a rather evenly played second game allowed the FaZe boys to maintain their lead and secure the championship.

The victory meant that Tfue and Cloak improved to 2-0 vs TSM in the Grand Finals and became the first players to win Friday Fortnite for a fourth time, while no other players have managed to win it more than once.
Week 4 winners Myth and Hamlinz had a chance to join them as multiple time champions, but were not up to the challenge.
