Russel “Twistzz” Van Dulken is a 20-year-old Canadian CS:GO player who has been representing Team Liquid for over three years. In his career, he earned over $800.000 from the events. Recently, he earned ‘The Best Canadian Esports Player’ award.

In 2019, Team Liquid and Twistzz were living in a dream. They dominated the scene so long after the Astralis era that most of the people call it the Team Liquid era. But, the downfall started at the end of the year.

At the start of this year, they played at BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 Regular Season and lost against FaZe Clan with 0-2 scores. After a month, they tried to show their talent in Intel Extreme Masters XIV – World Championship.

However, the struggle continued for the Twistzz and his colleagues, and they lost against Natus Vincere in the quarterfinals without getting a map point. Despite these failures, they were hungry for the trophy and committed to showing it in the next tournament.

In April, Team Liquid reached out to the finals of ESL Pro League Season 11: North America and faced against one of the strongest teams in North America, Evil Geniuses. In the finals, Team Liquid didn’t lose a single map and won the trophy as well as $90.000.

Nevertheless, the poor performance started yet again and they got eliminated in the semifinals of ESL One: Road to Rio – North America against Furia Esports. Also, they lost the 3rd place match against Cloud9.

After this disappointing result, they wanted to step up at DreamHack Masters Spring 2020: North America and played really well throughout the playoffs, even though they lost against Furia Esports in the finals.

Because of these results, the captain of the team, Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella, stepped down from the active roster and Team Liquid added Michael “Grim” Wince while Jacky “Stewie2K” Yip became the in-game leader of the roster.

After these changes, Team Liquid started to perform well and played consistent in the next tournaments, even though they couldn’t get any victory from them, the players earned the respect of the community.

Twistzz and his colleagues reached out the finals of both DreamHack Open Summer 2020: North America and ESL One: Cologne 2020 Online – North America, and Team Liquid proved that they still got something to show the CS:GO scene.

Following these results from nine tournaments, Twistzz earned $47.600 so far in 2020. If they continue to perform well consistently, this number will rise dramatically for him like it did in the last year.
