The 2018 Silverback Open Championships
took place on October 27th and 28th, 2018 at a new venue named 2300 Arena, based in South Philadelphia. Nearly 850 breakers from 50 countries battled to get into the final rounds on a main stage and two cypher stages with three giant video screens run by and8 from Germany scheduling the breakers during the preliminaries and final rounds.

A panel of seven judged the 1-v-1 Open, 1-v-1 Bgirl, 3-v-3 Open, and 1-v-1 U14, with two alternates available in the event a judge happened to be in the same crew as a competitor, which brought the total judging panel to nine for the weekend.

The Silverback Open is a Champions Series level event on the Pro Breaking Tour and is organized by Silverback Bboy Events. The 2018 event was the fifth Silverback Open – the 1-v-1 Open is one of the most challenging breaking events in the world, given the depth and quality of the competitive field, featuring scores of past winners of leading international breaking competitions and Pro Breaking Tour events, many of whom do not get past the preliminaries.

As with all competitions, there can only be one first place winner in each category, and the Silverback Open had its well deserving victors in every category. In the 1-v-1 Open battle, Victor (Squadron / MF Kidz / Red Bull BC One All Stars) took first place over Stripes (Main Ingredientz / Flipside Kings); for the Bgirls, 15-year old Logistx (Underground Flow) prevailed over Jilou (Jimakeno Crew / Nin10do Crew); in the 3-v-3 Open, Plan B (Menno, Hong10, and Vero) took first over Navi Crew (Lussy Sky, Beetle, and Shigekix); and, in the U14 category, Lorenzo (born in 2005) took first over Kid Dynamite (2010).

Results of the final rounds are available on the and8 website.

took place on October 10th and 11th 2015 at the YSC Sports complex outside of Philadelphia as part of the 2015 Pro Breaking Tour’s Champions Series. The event was organized by Silverback Bboy Events and paid $90,150 in cash prize money, plus trips for several winners to the Freestyle Session World Finals in Los Angeles, as well as a trip to compete at Undisputed in Marseille, France for the 1-on-1 Open winner. The 1-on-1 Open and 1-on-1 Bgirl winners also received a Mackie Freeplay Portable PA Speaker with the optional lithium ion battery allowing for 10 hours of continuous music. A panel of seven judged the 1-on-1 Open, the 3-on-3 Open and the 1-on-1 Bgirl with two alternates in case a judge happens to be in the same crew as a competitor.  The preliminary battles expanded the judging panel to five judges for each cypher.

Like all competitions, there can only be one first place winner and the Silverback Open Championships had it’s well deserving victors in every category. In the 1-on-1 Open battle, Victor (MF Kidz) took first place over Issei (Found Nation), in the 3-on-3 Open it was 7 Commandoz (Hong10, Wing, Skim) who took first over Polskee Flavor (Kleju, Yarko, Thomas), and for the Bgirls it was Narumi (Body Carnival) over Macca (360 Flava) in the 1-on-1 Bgirl final.
