Virtus.pro over Liquid to finish day one

Virtus.pro passed Liquid comfortably 16-8 on Mirage in the first match of round three at the end of day one in New York.

Virtus.pro kicked off the last match of day one, the first of round three, with several comfortable rounds, leading 6-0 as they found entries time and time again while Liquid were unable to trade.

Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski's triple put his squad on the board, but Liquid couldn't string more rounds together as the Poles went on to pick up four rounds in a row. EliGE and Josh "jdm64" Marzano each found a couple of doubles over the next three rounds, while Virtus.pro picked up the last round in the half for an 11-4 lead.


NEO put up another great performance

Winning the final 1v2, Spencer "Hiko" Martin then saved a solid 2v4 attempt from Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski, helping Liquid lower the deficit to five rounds. However, after slow play in the second anti-eco from the Americans, Virtus.pro out-rotated their opponents and secured the round.

Jacob "Pimp" Winneche's triple in an A execute and a 1v2 clutch in the anti-eco afterwards put Liquid on eight rounds, but it was all for naught as the Polish roster won four in a row on the back of great plays from Filip "NEO" Kubski, Snax and Paweł "byali" Bieliński.
