GSquared Jake has announced an online freestyle contest called “The People’s Showdown”, featuring a pre-selected group of players battling for a $500 cash prize!

In the bracket, each player will submit new tricks to face off against one opponent at a time in single elimination match-ups. (The top vote receiver from each pool will have a first round by in the bracket play.)
Winner of the tournement takes home $500 cash!
