SK beat VP; to ESL One NY semi-finals

SK have become the second semi-finalists of ESL One New York after defeating Virtus.pro 16-8 on Train at the end of the fourth round.

SK and Virtus.pro were pitted against each other on Train in the last match of the fourth round. The Poles kicked the match off with a pistol round win as CT after an inner retake, but a double-AK forcebuy from their opponents tipped the scales in SK's favour, who went on to grab four in a row.

A smart flank from Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski after a few trades then gave VP an eco round victory, but their economy got reset once the Brazilians won a round just before the timer ran out.

With a couple of comfortable rounds, Filip "NEO" Kubski's side clawed back to 6-6 as they decided to go for a triple-AWP buy and managed to keep two for most of the four rounds won.


SK grab a semi-finals spot over Virtus.pro 

Epitacio "TACO" de Melo then won a 1v2 clutch thanks to good game sense and another close 2v2 situation went SK's way before Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo closed out the half at 9-6 after besting Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski in a 1v1 with sneaky positioning.

The second pistol round went the Poles' way after Snax picked up a triple kill in aggression, but they got picked apart in the following anti-forcebuy and SK went on to extend their lead to 12-7 after two clean anti-ecos.

Snax and Paweł "byali" Bieliński then combined for five kills in a disadvantageous situation, but their effort was for naught as SK won three afterplant situations in a row and secured their semi-finals spot at 16-8.

With the fourth round coming to an end, only two matches remain. The standings are currently following:

Not all, just fer got WH, maybe 1 time they will get camera on his hands, and youll see hotkey to take WH on, they play well, got nice aim, timing etc, but without that WH they will not be champions. Its just sad they dont wanna check how good they are withput WH.
2016-10-02 02:22
actually fer uses WH , aimbot , silent aim and the list goes... but we BR are too sneaky for valve and ESL so no chance

EZ guys, virtus.pro needs bo3 for win with everybody :P They play very good on 1cbble, 1mirage, 2cache and 2overpass, i think they shouldn't play train with the best teams. My prediction is like - if they win next match they will win the whole tournament :P
