fnatic wins SEC 2008

Sweden has done it again. Second year in a row, the gold at Samsung European Championship goes to Sweden.

fnatic represented Sweden, while Sweden and Poland once again made it to the final at Samsung European Championship, just like last year. Last year SK Gaming represented Sweden, while PGSPokerStrategy represented Poland. Present time. fnatic represented Sweden and once again the same Polish team represented Poland, just with a new name, MYM.

Since MYM came from lower bracket, they had to win two maps, while fnatic only needed one, to secure the Samsung European Championship gold. Starting off on de_nuke. fnatic as CT, but they really did not play the dominating CT side they use to. MYM was able as T to win first half 8:7. Second half fnatic really had to play a very consistent T side in order to win. MYM was able to secure a tie with the score 7:7 and only needed last round to win first map. MYM did take the last round, even with famas and no nades.

Second map should be de_inferno. The map MYM did not want to play fnatic on and I can tell why. fnatic started off as T. They got the momentum back in the game and MYM really had close to nothing to put up against fnatic. fnatic winning 11:4. Securing the gunround, fnatic was only 4 rounds away from the victory at Samsung European Championship. Fnatic pulled the remaining 4 rounds, raised their hands and can be crowned as Samsung European Champions 2008. MYM and Poland will second year in a row place second at Samsung European Championship, while third place go to the WCG Champions from McPoker.emL.

Error in the main post: If fnatic is in lead 11-4 they don't need 4 rounds to win, they need 5?
2008-03-09 13:39
Read again. They secured the gunround (thats 1 round) lacking 4 more (5 in total).
