Crokeyz Forks Punz

Crokeyz showed that he's a top contender, easily getting both wins against Punz. 

In game one, Crokeyz played the Queen's Gambit and found a great tactic with his queen to win Punz's bishop. Then only a few moves later he found a deadly fork to win the Minecraft streamer's queen.

A confident checkmate quickly followed, marking down the first win of the day in Crokeyz's column. 

Punz showed much stronger play in game two, winning multiple pawns early in the game and getting a strong position. But again, his queen fell to the MTG pro after he had left it on the explosive c4-square for too long. 

Another textbook checkmate followed, giving Crokeyz the full three points for the match. 

Boxbox Wraps Up Harry Mack

Boxbox, performing as expected in this matchup, took down rapper Harry Mack in both games. 

In game one, boxbox got his double "frappuccino" setup, but Mack played way above his level, finding a killer skewer to win boxbox's rook.

Harry was heading for a stunning upset when he blundered his own rook to boxbox, and the League of Legends pro snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. 

In game two, Harry got the white pieces and opened with the Italian, but the story was much the same. Boxbox flexed his higher rating and got a quick checkmate. 

Harry still has the upper hand in rap!

MrBeast Ends The Game For JakenbakeLIVE

MrBeast displayed his endgame prowess, winning both games in king-and-pawn endgames.

Jake, showing his new time management skills in the first game, stayed even or ahead on the clock for the whole game. Talking a little trash, MrBeast sent Jake messages in the chat saying, "Surrender!" 

The players took it to a king-and-pawn endgame with less than a minute on the clock each.  MrBeast's bullet skills gave him the advantage, and he checkmated Jake with a pawn promotion.

The next game looked like Jake was going to take it to tiebreak, but he blundered a rook under time pressure. The king of YouTube once again was able to bring the game to a winning pawn endgame, promote to a queen, and get the checkmate—all with barely over a minute on his clock. An endgame beast!

Can MrBeast win the consolation bracket?
