R.I.P. Jonas Neubauer

Seven-time Tetris World Champion and Twin Galaxies member Jonas Neubauer passed away last tuesday. Two years ago a viral YouTube video named "Boom! Tetris for Jeff" got me very interested in the Tetris World Championship and I've been watching every competition since then.

Jonas was one of the most talented Tetris players in the world and a really nice guy, who inspired many players to play Tetris both casually and competitively. He is absolutely responsible for the Tetris community growth in the last years and he will be missed by many, many gamers and fans alike.

Him winning the World Championship seven times was a monumental achievement and he will remembered as the GOAT for one of the most popular and played games in the world. This is absolutely sad and I still can't believe it. Goodbye to the greatest Tetris player of all time.

    This is very sad news indeed. Also it's easy to forget just how profound of an impact Tetris has had on the global gaming community. A seven-time world champ is a titan. RIP Mr. Neubauer.

    Truly a shining example and positive influence in the Tetris community, gone too soon.

    There may be a new Classic Tetris Champion out there, but a character such as Jonas is irreplaceable.

    Wow this hits me like a ton of bricks. Jonas was very competitive but always exhibited sportsmanship of the highest order. Gracious is victory, magnanimous in defeat we could all take a page out of his playbook. R.I.P. Jonas Neubauer.
