Maurice "KheZu" Gutmann (born April 27, 1995) is a German player who last played for Quincy Crew.


Heroes of Newerth[edit]

KheZu made himself a name in Heroes of Newerth as one of the more experienced suicide (offlane) players with many tournament wins over the years. Khezu's first notable team was DmSn/KD which him, INsania, Caspae, Malle and SmackDonald created in 2011. After that he played in teams like Blackfade, Team its Gosu, Gary Johnson 2012, stayGreen, Too much sugar and Sync eSports.
In 2014 KheZu was awarded "Most Valuable Suicide",[1] he likes especially farm-heavy, carryish heroes and he was the first person to ever reach 2100 MMR in HoN.[Citation needed]

Achievements in HoN:

  • Dreamhon European Qualifier Winner
  • DHS 12 3rd Place
  • DHOSC 12 3rd Place
  • Destination Dreamhack 12 1 out of 3 Winners
  • Garena Star League 2013 Winner
  • Hontour Season 1 Winner
  • DHS 15 3rd Place

Dota 2[edit]

KheZu switched over from HoN to Dota 2 in late 2015 and was highly sought after in the roster lock period before the Shanghai Major 2016. He was first rumoured to be playing with 7ckngMad, Kebap, miCKe and iNsania, but ended up registering with Demon, jk, Zyzzy and Kebap, a team that disbanded after Kebap joined NO-VASELINE.

KheZu joined Eskillz, Steffstyle, Pablo and Ash on the new team COOKISS after roster locks, but was unable to find much success with them. In the post Shanghai Major shuffle, KheZu joined syndereN's new team No Diggity. The team was signed by Escape Gaming shortly before The International 2016 and managed to qualify as the final wild card slot. Escape had a lackluster group stage however, finishing 2-12 before being eliminated by Fnatic in the first round of the lower bracket.

After Escape failed to qualify for the Boston Major 2016, KheZu joined Team Secret, replacing Forev.[2][3]


  • KheZu is the second highest earning HoN player of all time; only iNSaNiA has earned more.[4]
  • He would work as a chef or massage therapist if he was not playing professional Dota 2.[5]
  • His main hobby outside of gaming is football.[Citation needed]
  • Reached 10,000 MMR on June 8, 2020.[6]
  • Reached 11,000 MMR on February 9, 2021.[7]


  • Had the highest average assists per game (17.94) during Season 2 of the 2021 DPC WEU Lower Division.
