Gambit’s AWPer topped the competition in Budapest to win the individual award.
Dmitry “sh1ro” Sokolov has been declared the BitSkins.com MVP of the V4 Future Sports Festival by HLTV.org, following a spectacular individual performance that saw the AWPer lead Gambit to victory.

Although sh1ro decelerated in the title decider, he nevertheless went on to kick off the title tiebreaker against Entropiq with another vital performance on Vertigo, assisting Gambit to get off to an early lead in the series and overcome Entropiq’s attempt at a reverse sweep.
