hooch: "Satisfied with my team"

HLTV.org interviewed Gambit's Dmitry 'hooch' Bogdanov following his team's victory over Renegades to qualify for the MLG Columbus Major.

Gambit were underestimated perhaps by some as the CIS region team came into a stacked Group D and were the first to advance out of it after victories against Cloud9 and Renegades.

We spoke with Dmitry "hooch" Bogdanov of Gambit, who is himself a longtime staple of the Russian Counter-Strike scene, and discussed various sundry topics.

Upcoming interviews and other videos from the MLG Columbus Main Qualifier will be found over at our Youtube channel.

*2001 , he had big break tho at 2002 i think
2016-02-28 09:27
The first time he was at a major tournament was in 2003 at CPL Copenhagen with a russian/danish mix due to visa issues.

yes :( someone told me vp. but no i mean mYm.what was the team with AdreN ? UNiTED? was hooch there?
2016-02-28 13:49
hooch was in the legendary VP with Aleksey K aka LeX back in 2004-5.
2016-02-28 15:00
i know.
2016-02-28 15:18
yes, UNiTED AdreN, N1ck3L, Hooch, ROMJkE, F_1N but they play together not for a long time
2016-02-28 16:01
Hoochr the Hoochie... give it a couple of years and he'll be the next Dosia

2016-02-28 03:01
depending on the group they get Gambit could possibly get to ro8 imo unless they suffer HR problems still
2016-02-28 03:02
vs LG and Astralis ?? no way...

The best group they can get is FaZe, VP, Gambit and probably like Cloud9/Renegades. I can see this happening with such group. Even to beat a tier1 team is possible, cuz of bo1 format. We all remember the LG win against Fnatic
2016-02-28 03:32
it seems that at least LG can win .. because currently fnatic are not losing a single game.. haha.. but yeah maybe gambit can beat on a md1 vs the others..

You know that LG can't be with Fnatic in one group right?

People really underestimated them because they hadn't gone to any LANs appart from the minor, but Gambit really has a great lineup
2016-02-28 03:06

2016-02-28 13:13
nope, hooch, real adren and dosia are amazing players of course people expect them to deliver.

Well done uncle Mitya. I am pretty sure that even if they will be unable to go pass the group stage, they will give a solid performance and top teams might struggle against them
