Watch some of the world's best Tetris players 'speedrun' The Grand Master

One of speedrunning's best spectacles happens today

One of the highlights of speedrunning marathon event Games Done Quick is watching other people play Tetris with superhuman skill. At this year's Summer Games Done Quick, which runs all week long, some of the world's best players will show off their block-clearing talents during a Tetris: The Grand Master Series exhibition.

If you've watched Arika's Tetris: The Grand Master games being played at previous Games Done Quick events, you probably have a good idea just how spectacular these exhibitions are. If you haven't, you're in for a mind-blowing treat.

Summer Games Done Quick 2016's Tetris: The Grand Master Series exhibition will feature players aperturegrillz, Poochy.EXE, EnchantressOfNumbers, Qlex and KevinDDR (who you may remember from this world-class Tetris: The Grand Master 3 - Terror Instinct performance, a feat eight years in the making).
