Monaco Aces kicked off their 2019 GCL campaign in determined style combining speed and pinpoint accuracy to take the lead going into Saturday’s showdown.
Ten out of the 16 teams jumped double clears as it quickly became clear the new GCL teams had more strength and depth and motivation is at an all time high to win the championship.
The fresh Aces duo of Jos Verlooy and Marlon Monolo Zanotelli, teaming up for the first time after transferring from other teams, were almost three seconds faster than Hamburg Giants who finished in second place ahead of Shanghai Swans in third.
