Tetris World Champion Crowned

This weekend in Los Angeles, Jonas Neubauer, a 29 year-old from Redondo Beach, California, took on all comers to become the Tetris champion of the world. Neubauer scored over half a million points in the NES version of the game, and that was enough to best his competition Harry Wong and take home the prize.

"I got a big-ass trophy," Neubauer said. "It's a three-foot tall trophy, bigger than any of my T-ball trophies."

 "I attribute my success to trying a speed-level that was beyond my capabilities. And I kept hammering at it. You have to take yourself out of your comfort zone if you want to be good." Neubauer said.

Neubauer, who holds the world record for NES Tetris at 999,999 points(See video below), hopes that a new challenger rises to test his ultimate Tetris superiority. He's completed two games, back to back, with a max 999,999 scores, but a skilled newcomer could perhaps go for three.
