The Silverback Open Championships ’16
took place on October 8th and 9th 2016 at the YSC Sports complex outside of Philadelphia as part of the 2016 Pro Breaking Tour’s Champions Series. The event was organized by Silverback Bboy Events and paid $100,000 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 Prague, Czech Republic for the 1-on-1 Open winner. 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 happened 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 its well deserving victors in every category. In the 1-on-1 Open battle, Thesis (Knuckleheads Cali) took first place over Issei (Found Nation), in the 3-on-3 Open it was Kuzya / Sunni / Pocket who took first over Super Crew (Ben Stacks, Lil G, Ronnie), and for the Bgirls it was Narumi (Body Carnival) over Bgirl AT (Flomo) in the 1-on-1 Bgirl final.
