Joseph Saelee Wins The Classic Tetris World Championship

This evening, we have a new Classic Tetris World Champion as Joseph Saelee bested everyone else in Portland at the tourney to claim top honors. Technically a returning champion, he beat top contender Koryan in some high-speed levels in some really valiant efforts to take the title. As a special surprise to the winners, Alexey Pajitnov, the creator of Tetris, was on hand to witness the finals and congratulate the winners.
