Name: Alvar Dürr
From Helsinki, Finland
Alvar “Vardu” Dürr is the youngest Hearthstone player in the Helsinki REDS Hearthstone lineup. His love for Hearthstone was originally born of his love for strategy games – when he was younger, he played a lot of chess and Pokémon TCG. He was drawn to esports due to his competitive nature. Vardu was the Finnish champion for Hearthstone in 2017 as well as in the top eight in Dreamhack Winter 2017. He sees his young age as an opportunity and an asset: to him, it just means he has more time to learn and hone his skills.
