FaZe Clan's Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken believes he is the best Counter Strike: Global Offensive player in North America right now.
In the ongoing CS:GO IEM Dallas, FaZe Clan are 2/7 to beat ENCE, who can be backed at 5/2 to win on Wednesday.
It has been a brilliant year in CS:GO for FaZe Clan, who won the PGL Major Antwerp earlier in May, defeating Natus Vincere in the final.
And they are going strong at the current IEM Dallas, having won both of their opening matches in Group A in the upper bracket.
The Clan have so far seen off Encore ESC and Team Vitality and can seal their spot in the playoffs with victory over ENCE.
They will then need to prevail in three more knockout contests to take the IEM Dallas title and the $100,000 prize money for first place.

It would be no surprise to see this team do exactly that given the strength they have shown on the CS:GO circuit this year and "Twistzz" has spoken about where he thinks he ranks in the region right now and how he wants to claim a Grand Slam for his teammates.
Replying to commentator James Banks, who asked if he considers himself the best player in the NA region right now, "Twistzz" replied: "If you go of pure achievements & relevance, it would be me right now yeah.
"I'm definitely hungry for the second Grand Slam, not only for myself but for my teammates to have their first one."
