Tokido sent to losers bracket by The Cool Kid at Final Round 2019 after eating three wake up Critical Arts

One of the best Street Fighter 5 players in the world, and a favorite to win any tournament he enters, has been sent to the losers bracket early at Final Round 2019. Rohto|Tokido was taken down by The Cool Kid on stream today in an exciting bout between Akuma and Abigail, respectively.

Today marks the first day and first event of the 2019 Capcom Pro Tour. With this being a CPT Premier event, there's a lot of pride and points on the line at this major tournament.

The clash between these two strong competitors was back and forth, ultimately ending up with one game a-piece in the third and final game. Cool Kid sat one round up in the last game as Tokido's offense appeared to be a good start to him turning things around.

Cornering the Abigail player, Tokido put the hurt on Cool Kid as he brought the giant close to stun and landed a big combo into Critical Art. Though things were looking good for Tokido, Cool Kid went for a wake up Critical Art, which punished Tokido's jab attempt and won him the set.

One clutch wake up super is great, but what makes Cool Kid's performance even more impressive is that he won two other rounds in this set the same way. He batted three for three on wake up Critical Art, tagging Tokido every time without fail.

Tokido and Cool Kid met in the winners finals of pool A1 — the first pool of the day. This year's Final Round is running a "three out" system where one player makes it out of their pool on the winners side and two competitors make it from losers.
