RUSH: "We choked against Gambit"

Will "RUSH" Wierzba talked to HLTV.org after OpTic's win over Fluffy Gangsters on day two of the ESL One Cologne Main Qualifier.

On day one, OpTic failed to deliver against Gambit, who came back from a 4-11 score to win 16-14 on Cobblestone.

Day two gave them another CIS team, the Minor winners FLuffy Gangsters, whom the North American team faced on Train and won 16-9 despite a great performance from Anatoliy "liTTle" Yashin.

We conducted an interview with William "RUSH" Wierzba to get an idea on how confident the team was going into the qualifier, what their chances are, and we also got his thoughts on the two matches.
