The time has come for our twenty-sixth IGN Pro League Fight Club! This is a weekly king of the hill showmatch series. Basically, there will be a 1 vs. 1 best of 9 showmatch each and every week, where the winner will earn a $500 prize and a $100 bounty on their head. For example, if a player wins three weeks in a row they will have earned $1,500 and a $300 bounty. If a NEW challenger defeats him, they will earn $500 for the showmatch, take the $300 bounty home, and have a new $100 bounty placed on their head for each week that they win. (Similar to IPL Team Arena, but without the teams!)
StarTale Squirtle has already shown us that he is taking Fight Club seriously, taking out SlayerS`CoCa handily last week, a player that was renowned for his amazing record against Protoss. This week, VortiX, one of the recent stars of IPL Team Arena Challenge 3 and a TSL4 qualifier will take his turn in the challenger's seat. Will he be able to showcase some brilliant ZvP against this proven GSL powerhouse?

But he is playing against best PvZer in the world
I love Squirtle but he is far from the best PvZ in the world. Although Squirtle should win i expect VortiX to at least take a couple of games/make it close and would not be that shocked if he won. Probably the most underrated player in the scene atm

that's so sad I love vortix, but this is gonna be so hard for him. He shows flashes of brilliance sometimes, but (imo) he's nowhere near consistent enough to destroy Squirtle, who is like top 3 protoss right now Remember that daybreak game vs SaSe in a TSL4 qualifier? He killed all 3 nexus(es?), but he couldn't hold off the counter
Great opportunity for Vortix to tell the world that he's arrived and to demo the fruits of his training. Squirtle is an awesome PvZer no matter how you see it, and the map pool is excellent for the match up.

Well VortiX is qualified for TSL4 and did very well in IPL TAC3 but taking out Squirtle would easily be the outstanding achievment of his career. I highly doubt it though. Squirtle is one of the world's best players and very capable in PvZ.
