The Red Bull Kumite 2016 Street Fighter V event ended yesterday April 24th with Seonwoo 'Infiltration' Lee taking it at first place, yet another major Street Fighter V event under his belt alongside NorCal Regionals and Final Round 19. But one of the "standout players" of the event as Red Bull eSports puts it was Adel 'Big Bird' Anouche, a young Algerian Street Fighter player living in Abu Dhabi. The day before on April 23rd, Big Bird had to compete against 255 players in the qualifying rounds, and managed to get past them all, proving himself one of the best Ken players right now in the international scene.
But on the big day of the event, Big Bird managed to defeat Alioune, but was then knocked to losers by Bonchan. At losers, Big Bird managed to defeat Xian, then Gamerbee, before finally getting knocked out by Kazunoko and round 4 of losers. Congrats to Big Bird for reaching such a high ranking at one of the bigger Street Fighter V events.
