Baber 'Tekken Guru' Abbas is back at the top.

Baber 'Tekken Guru' Abbas (Knights Mind Sports Club) at MSSA's 2018 South African National Championships .
Baber Abbas has participated in many of Mind Sports South Africa's championships over the years. It was therefore not surprising to see Baber at MSSA's annual South African National Championships held on 2 December 2018.

As usual, Baber was only there to contest the Tekken 7 esports period, and contest it he did.

None could stand up to Baber as he waltzed through all of his opposition. Baber won all 5 of the rounds of the Swiss System Championship which left him on a perfect score. As such, Baber walked away with first place as well as South African National Federation Colours.

All of his opponents expressed the view that they had learnt much from having played him, and Baber was quick tto give advice to his opponents. It is Baber's opinion that in order for him to improve, he has to help his opponents improve as they will then be able to push him harder so that he can reach even greater heights.

Baber's results have thus placed him at the top of the rankings, and have made him the man to beat.

However, it is extremely exciting that 
Chiney Wallace (HTS Sasolburg) who won the female division is now ranked in 5th place overall.
