IEM V Gamescom champion Germany Marcel "k1llsen" Paul has been interviewed in the lead up to the DreamHack Winter and MSi Beat IT tournaments which will take place later this week.

Responding to whether his Gamescom victory was lucky or not:
Was it lucky? I mean where was the luck factor there? I think I deserved that win and worked hard for it and in the end my work just paid out finally, after I was very unlucky at ESWC 2010 and DH Summer. BUT overall I would say yes of course it was, since you can't really push yourself to have a good day it's there or not.
