Cloud9 beat G2 at DH Austin
Cloud9 have beaten G2 16-10 at DreamHack Open Austin 2017.
G2 and Cloud9 faced each other in the second opening match of Group B. The map was Cache and the French squad started on the CT-side.
Richard "shox" Papillon and Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro won the pistol round with a 2vs4 post-plant clutch and G2 took the game to 6-0 until Cloud9 could answer. G2 reset Cloud9's economy by winning the following round but the North Americans returned the favor to make it 2-7.
Cloud9 managed to tie the game at 7-7 with five exquisite rounds in a row but Kenny "kennyS" Schrub showed up in the last round of the half, getting a triple kill after lurking and winning the round (8-7).
Cloud9 won their first match in Austin
Cloud9 started the second half strong by winning a 2vs2 in the pistol round. After winning the anti-ecos and leading 10-8, Cloud9 lost a 4vs3 in the first buy round.

G2 were able to win their tenth round after losing three in a row but Cloud9 made the score 14-10 after a successful retake. Cloud9 won the game 16-10 and will play Immortals in the winners' match. G2, on the other hand, will play Liquid tomorrow in an elimination match.
