Smasher:Vinnie

Vinnie is a smasher from Long Island, New York who mains Ice Climbers in Brawl and Sheik in Smash 4. Vinnie was originally known as PGN or 1337PGN back when he first started entering tournaments. He is currently ranked 4th and 5th on the New York Smash 4 Power Rankings and Tristate Brawl Power Rankings, respectively. In 2012, Vinnie traveled to Japan for an international tournament, Sun Rise Tournament, where he took Grand Finals to last game of the last set, barely losing to RAIN. He is considered to be one of the best Ice Climbers in the world along with 9B, NAKAT, and ESAM, and is also considered to be the top Mr. Game & Watch. Vinnie generally uses the word "Viva!" as his in-game tag (for VivaTheSaturn a fellow friend/Game and Watch main).

Additionally, Vinnie is one of the few players to have taken a set off of ZeRo, managing to defeat a combination of ZeRo's Sheik and Diddy Kong 3-2 in the first set of grand finals at PAX Prime 2015 (although ZeRo ended up winning the second set 3-1 using Diddy Kong).

He confirmed on January 2nd, 2016 that he will be quitting Smash 4, and that TGC 6 will be his last major tournament, but will still be attending locals. However, on April 13th, 2016, he claimed he would fully return to the competitive scene. He is still competing at the national level as of January 2017.
