Greg pulls a Hartung.

"Well fought. I concede."
—Rexxar, the Hunter hero in Hearthstone.

"Pulling a Hartung" is an in-joke for fans of Scotch and Smoke Rings, essentially meaning to concede in a game of Hearthstone. It is a reference to long-time fan, Federo Gregoro, often conceding to Oxhorn in the game when he knows he has lost. This is polar opposite to Ox who never concedes to an opponent.
