After top-six finishes on the first two days, the German duo of "OVA scout" and "OVA Zeston" surged to claim first place on the final day of the Gamers Without Borders charity Fortnite tournament Thursday.

Representing Ovation eSports, the team of OVA scout and OVA Zeston finished with 405 points, narrowly outpacing the Copenhagen Flames duo of "Flames Deqzyy" and "VHV Shadow" (401 points) for the $300,000 first prize.

That money will go to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), Ovation's chosen charity, to aid relief for the coronavirus pandemic. The team had already earned $35,000 for UNICEF after finishing sixth ($15,000) and fifth ($20,000) on the first two days.

All prizes were doubled Thursday for the final day of the event -- which featured six matches per day -- adding up to a total of $2 million for charity.

Team Singularity, made up of the Danish duo of Sebastian "Trippernn" Sommer Kjaer and Thomas "Th0masHD" Hoxbro Davidsen, finished in the top three for the third straight day Thursday, posting 400 points. They took second place on Tuesday and third on Wednesday, earning a total of $250,000 over the three-day event.

Rounding out the top five on Day 3 were British team DannySMZ ("hardfind" and "SRN AstroSMZ") with 317 points and windeen ("CaptainWind" of Denmark and "srn marteen" of the Czech Republic) with 299 points, as both teams finished in the top five for the second time this week. DannySMZ took fourth on Wednesday, and windeen were fifth on Tuesday.

CPH Flames earned $200,000 for Thursday's runner-up finish, benefiting Gavi, The Faccine Alliance, while Singularity won $100,000, DannySMZ $50,000 and windeen $40,000. Each of the latter three teams are giving to UNICEF.

The Russian duo of Kirill "VP kiryache32" Grishin and Mark "Gambit Letw1k3" Danilov, collectively known as gamvp, finished with just 34 points -- good for 39th place -- after winning each of the first two days comfortably.

The tournament was part of Gamers Without Borders' $10 million International Elite initiative for charity, raising money for coronavirus-relief foundations. Of the 50 two-man teams, 40 were from Europe, with 10 from the Middle East and Africa.
