Liquid beat TyLoo in overtime
Liquid have picked up their first win at the Major Main Qualifier after a nail-biting 22-19 victory over TyLoo on Inferno.
TYLOO started out Inferno as Terrorists and opened up the pistol round with two frags. Liquid were then able to kill four before Hui "DD" Wu almost pulled off a 1v3 clutch. After winning the anti-eco, the North Americans lost the subsequent three rounds.
Liquid were then able to pick up the following round after Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski found three in the B bombsite. In the next one, this time on the other side of the map, it was Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken who found a trio of kills to help his team secure a 4-3 lead.
Liquid kept increasing their lead despite only rarely finding opening kills. However, in the 11th round, the Chinese squad managed to win a semi-buy, setting them up for a three-round streak.
DD opened up the half with two kills to help TYLOO grab the pistol. Following the anti-ecos, the Chinese men reached the ten-round mark before losing the next two. Liquid eventually took control of the game and reached map point, but TYLOO picked themselves up and won the final three rounds to take the game to overtime.
The first overtime failed to determine a winner as both teams picked up two rounds on the CT side. In the next one, Liquid managed to take four rounds, locking down the map at 22-19.
