The third China vs Europe Championship is over, and the Ferrari promised for winning is finally in the hands of one of the Chinese players. Team Newbee's Ruoji (also known as Lovelychook) beat Kolento 3-2 in the final, to become the first Chinese winner of the event. The format was best of five Conquest, with a ban.

As previously reported, the European lineup for the event was incredibly strong, leading to most people to believe that China did not have much chance of winning. Heading into the semi-final stage, not many had changed their minds, as Lovelychook was the sole Chinese representative left in the event. Europe's remaining players were SuperJJKolento, and current World Champion, Ostkaka.

Lovelychook beat Superjj 3-0 to reach the final. Kolento beat Ostkaka 3-2.

In the final, Kolento, who won this event last time around, banned Rogue, while Lovelychook banned Shaman. Lovelychook opened up with his Face Shaman in game one, while Kolento chose to start with N'Zoth Paladin. Kolento went down to 2 life, but managed to stabilise with Forbidden Healing, and took a 1-0 lead. Lovelychook stayed with the Shaman for the second game. Kolento queued up Rogue, which is a bad matchup for him, and the scores were soon level at 1-1.

Kolento stayed with Rogue for game three. Lovelychook played his Tempo Mage, which included Cabalist's Tome,  and Yogg-Saron, Hope's End. Kolento got a removal heavy start to clear up the early threats. In turn six he cycled Fan of Knives into his Gadgetzan Auctioneer, and was able to turn that into a 2-1 lead. In game four, Lovelychook managed to get control of the early board with his Mage against Hunter. He did have to rely on Yogg-Saron to clear the board near the end, but his position held to set up a final game. The final matchup was his Anyfin Can Happen Paladin against Kolento's Hunter. The Paladin deck barely missed a beat, and Lovelychook became the first Chinese champion of this event. His record through his five matches was an impressive 15-3.

Lovelychook took home the $22,000 first prize, and a Ferrari CaliforniaT valued at around $162,000. This puts him above Firebat as the top prize winner of all time. He will, however, need to get his driver's license if he intends to show off his new prize!

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week! Its name is Spellbook Duel.
      For this Brawl, you choose your class and then you pick 10 different cards to fill your deck. Instead of drawing cards each turn, you Discover a copy of a card from your deck. If you use card drawing mechanics, like Arcane Intellect, you don't actually draw from your deck. You will, in fact, get a 1-mana spell called Peruse, which again allows you to Discover a copy of a card from your deck.
      Obviously, there are a lot of possible deck combinations you can use to tackle this new Tavern Brawl. The first things that pop into mind are anything that contains Reno Jackson and Kazakus, as well as Jade Druid to extend the possibility of getting these precious Jade Idols. Once again, Mage is the clear winner of this Brawl with cards like Sorcerer's Apprentice, Arcane Intellect and Flamewaker.
      Bear in mind that some cards are not recommended, since they remove cards from your Discover pool. Examples are Fel Reaver and Tracking. Moreover, cards that put another card directly into play, like Mysterious Challenger and Mad Scientist, will also make your Discover pool smaller. Lastly, according to a Reddit user, Renounce Darkness won't deduct 1 mana from the cards you discover throughout the game.
      There are already a lot of disgusting decks for Spellbook Duel out there. We are waiting for your suggestions and any other useful info in the comments!
