Gambit to playoffs over VP
Gambit move on in first place at DreamHack Master Las Vegas' Group B after defeating Virtus.pro for 16-10 in Cobblestone.
Gambit started off on T-side with a B execution in a back and forth round that turned out in their favor. The anti-ecos were fast and succeeded plays on the same bombsite. In the first gun round and the following one, Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko's team kept going B.
Gambit just executed B for eight straight rounds
The next two rounds had a slower pace, but the CIS squad insisted on the same exact bombsite. As they secured a seven round advantage, Virtus.pro managed to get the following four rounds. In round 11th, Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov and Rustem "mou" Telepov pulled out a 2v2 and got Gambit to a 8-4 scoreline lead. A triple kill by Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski in round 14th led the Polish team to win one more round, but first half finished 10-5 as their opponents won the last one.
Virtus.pro won the second pistol with a triple kill by Paweł "byali" Bieliński. Although they won the subsequent round, a save by Gambit let them win round 18th and the next two. The Polish squad got a four round difference after Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas's 1v1 against mou. Despite Filip "NEO" Kubski's team effort and semi-buy win, Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev and his teammates continued to control the match and have guaranteed their place at playoffs with a 16-10 scoreline.
Key moment: In round 17th, Gambit were able to save an UMP-45 and three kevlars. In the following round, Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko's opened it with a CZ kill, which turned into a 2v3, picked AK-47 and killed two more in B site, as the CIS team secured one of the most important rounds of the match.
