Gambit are off to a great start at cs_summit after defeating GODSENT on two maps (19-15 on Cache and 16-5 on Cobblestone).
The series kicked off on Cache, which began with Rustem "mou" Telepov almost pulling off a quad kill before being taken down by Joakim "disco doplan" Gidetun in the decisive 1v1. After getting their economy in order, Gambit put together a string of rounds and eventually took the lead. GODSENT came close to winning the next two rounds, but Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev went huge in both cases and single-handedly won the rounds for his team.
Down 3-7, GODSENT found a lifeline as Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson clutched a 1vs5 situation with a Desert Eagle. That one round shifted the momentum back in GODSENT's favor, with the Swedish team winning five rounds in a row before the end of the half to take an 8-7 lead.
The second half began with GODSENT taking the pistol round with a quad kill from Lekr0. Gambit hit back with a force-buy and won six of the next eight rounds, jumping out to a 14-11 lead.
GODSENT refused to throw in the towel, however, and tightened up their defence, taking the game to overtime, where Gambit would prove to be far too strong for their opponents as they won four rounds straight to take the map, 19-15.
Map two, Cobblestone, was a complete blowout for most of the first half, with Gambit storming to a 7-1 lead on the Terrorist side. It was only when they were down 1-10 that GODSENT would finally be able to hold back their opponents, with the half ending in an 11-4 scoreline.
Gambit piled more misery on their opponents by taking the first four rounds on the CT side, hitting match point. disco doplan then kept GODSENT in the game with an ace during an A execute, but Gambit took the next round to lock down the map, 16-5.
