Strelok competed in many of the TLOpens to attempt to qualify for TSL3. His total points forced him into a tie-breaker situation against SeleCT where he surprisingly took the series 3-0 and attained the final qualifier spot for TSL3. In the round of 32, Strelok was matched up against Tyler and was taken down 2-0.
On May 13th 2011, Strelok joined imba.FXOpen.

Strelok was supposed to participate in the NASL Season 1 Grand Finals, but due to visa related issues, he could not go, so aLive replaced him.
