gav, formerly known as Nova, is an American smasher. He began playing on Kaillera in 2009 when he was completely new to the game, but over time he learned and improved greatly. He is not a very technical player but makes up for it with his good spacing and the ability to read his opponent well. He is currently ranked 2nd on the Georgia Power Rankings. In 2018 at console tournaments he took sets from ReefyBeefy, Birra, B33F (who would go on to be ranked 56th in the 2018 64 League Rankings) and the controversial Studstill, among others.
