It's been over half a year since the Christmas themed 8th Cup in which AKAWonder made it to the semi-finals and he's eager to finally take the trophy home. For Dalesom, it will be his first appearance and he'll be looking to get far into the tournament and leave a great impression which could score him another invite in the future.
