IMT & Astralis pick up wins in round 3
The third round of group A at IEM Oakland have resulted in Immortals smashing G2 16-4 on Cobblestone and Astralis decimating Liquid on Train 16-1.
The battle between G2 and Immortals was set on Cobblestone and it was the Brazilian side that picked up the pistol round on CT-side and though they lost the first gun round, Henrique "HEN1" Teles and company could buy straight back and reset, thanks to succesful anti-ecoing with their SMG's.
Even when back on rifles the Frenchmen were often looking in need of a tour guide as they could barely move in to bombsites. The Samurai were being locked out of the castle and Immortals had thrown away the key.
The G2 that won versus Astralis was absent on Cobble
Switching up the approach to the A-site did help Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro's team eke out three more rounds to make it 4-11, but as Cobble is very much a T-sided map, things were looking very bleak for the Black-Red.
The blowout was looming fast after Immortals steamrolled the A-site on the pistol round, and entried fast as well in the first gunround to shut out all but any chance for G2 to mount a comeback. 16-4 it ended in favor of the iBP Masters champions.

Meanwhile on Train Astralis were looking to pick up their first win over Liquid and we were witness to another Fort Knox defense being put up by the CT side, courtesy of the Danish side as Nick "nitr0" Cannella and company had clearly not bought a ticket for boarding.
14-1 half lead for the Danes and as they clinched the pistol round on T-side the American side had reached the end of the line. 16-1 for Astralis.
