aizy & cajunb to HTC 2v2

North duo René "cajunb" Borg and Philip "aizy" Aistrup have been announced as the final team for the HTC 2v2 Invitational.

The North pair become the second Danish team confirmed for the tournament, following in the footsteps of Heroic's Jakob "JUGi" Hansen and Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen, who were announced as participants at the weekend.

Taking place this weekend inside PGL's studio, in Romania, the HTC 2v2 Invitational will see eight duos go head-to-head for the lion's share of a $50,000 prize pool.

aizy and cajunb will represent North in the 2v2 competition

The competition will feature a double-elimination format in both the group stage and the playoffs, with the map pool consisting of two retake maps plus one rifle map. 

The complete list of participants for the tournament looks as follows:

Too bad there's no one from Poland. Michu was 2nd in 1v1, so they could invite him with some kinguin teammate.
2017-05-09 22:20
MICHU wanted to go with SZPERO but they dont have time cuz of bootcamp and other things
2017-05-09 23:19
Imagine MICHU & Snax. Sheeeeeit

who cares about 1v1s and 2v2s in CS tbh, don't mean anything and are not entertaining there are excellent games for that, CS isn't one of them

wasn't it SmithZZ that had 99 and was really good at 1v1s? I remember shox saying that
2017-05-10 11:42
Smithzz was and he is still a beast in 1v1 ( trust me or not ) but it was uzzziii who beat shox in his 99 streak on ESL
