Team EnVy pro player ‘KingRichard’ and Team SoloMid streamer ‘Aimbotcalvin’ have won the tenth running of the KEEMSTAR ‘Friday Fortnite’ celebrity tournament.
The pair beat out the 100 Thieves pro player duo of ‘Kenith’ and ‘Parallax’ in the Grand Final to secure the whopping $10,000 first place prize.
Having won the Winners Bracket, KingRichard and Aimbotcalvin came into the Grand Final needing to only win one match, whereas Kenith and Parallax, who were coming from the Losers Bracket, needed two.
However, things did not get to that point as Richard and Calvin were able to take care of business across the two games in the first and only match.

The victory secured the first ever Friday Fortnite championship for both players, and must have been extra sweet for KingRichard, who had previously made it to a Grand Final while playing with ‘Ninja,’ but lost to four-time winners ‘Tfue’ and ‘Cloak.’
Despite coming up just short, Parallax and Kenith have every right to hold their heads high. The pair, playing in their first Friday Fortnite together, took home $7,000, managed to beat defending champions Tfue and Cloak twice, and secured the second best finish ever for 100 Thieves, after content creator ‘NICKMERCS’ won the whole thing in Week One.
