Clutch Gaming sits at 8-9 with one game left in the 2019 LCS Summer Split. Despite today being the last day of the split, 5th and 6th seeds for the 2019 LCS Summer Playoffs have yet to be decided. CG sits tied with OpTic Gaming and Golden Guardians, the latter of whom is its final regular season opponent.
While Cody "Cody Sun" Sun has done an admirable job in stabilizing the bottom side of the map for Clutch Gaming, the teams wins still come largely in part from Top Laner Heo "Huni" Seung-hoon. It seems that the way Huni goes, Clutch Gaming goes, and lately, Huni's been succeeding in a lot of winning matchups on the top side in the final weeks of the split.
If OpTic Gaming is able to defeat Cloud9 at the beginning of the day, then Clutch Gaming and Golden Guardians' final regular season showdown will decide the final 2019 LCS Summer Playoffs team. If OpTic Gaming loses, then the winner of CG vs. GGS will be the 5th playoff seed, and the loser will play OpTic Gaming in a tie-breaker for the final playoff seed.
Regardless of circumstance, Huni is putting a lot of pressure on himself after missing North American playoffs for the first time in his career last split. Huni sat down with Inven Global's Nick Geracie to talk about Clutch Gaming's new Dignitas hybrid jerseys, his responsibilities as a team leader, and his confidence against Golden Guardians on the final day of the 2019 LCS Summer Split.
