In the finals of Sunday's PTI event, Jose Lau faced off against Shao Hong to emerge victorious. Jose is known locally as 'Betrayer Lau'. Earlier this year, he declared he was bringing Rhinar, his main, to the Calling: Singapore, but showed up with Iyslander, also playing her in Nationals and the World Championship. This time, after deciding on Iyslander for the Battle Hardened, he showed up with Rhinar for both events at the last minute and took out the PTI event.
