SK defeat Astralis; go 2-0 up

SK picked up their second win of the PGL Major Krakow, beating one of the favorites for the tournaments Astralis 16-8 on Inferno.

Rounds were traded back and forth at the start of one of the match between Astralis and SK, but it was the latter team that managed to started stringing rounds together first. Playing on the Terrorist side of Inferno, SK looked indominable, going 8-1 up before the Danes managed to reply with a round of their own.

A followup round was needed from Astralis for them to get back into the game, but a 2v2 situation on B was resolved by Marcelo "coldzera" David, giving them a massive advantage in the economy. The #1 player of 2016 did the same thing two rounds later, this time closing out an A site afterplant to make the score 11-2 in their favor.

coldzera was once again the man of the match for SK

coldzera finished the first half with 23 kills and only 3 deaths, with his team being 13-2 up before the switch. As CT, the Brazilians weren't able to get to the flying start, Astralis secured a pistol and then the second round anti-force with a clean A site execute. Nicolai "device" Reedtz started waking up in the second half, with a great example of that being his quad kill with the AWP in round 20, which made the score 13-7.

Despite Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen's missplay in the following round, that came down to a 1v1, Astralis bounced straight back as Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye got all three kills in a 2v3 B site afterplant. Astralis' CT side run was stopped then and there, with coldzera once again doing he imposible, picking up three Deagle kills to allow his team to secure a eco round win that was followed up by an A site lockdown that won SK the game.

majors? majors are valve sponsored events and the first major happened on csgo, say "big lans" not majors.
2017-07-18 18:37
You are dumb as shit, 1.6 had major titles as well also NEO did it on his own the Polish scene has always been shit, cold is playing with some of the best players in the world on his team, NEO had no one you can't even begin to compare them NEO is literally a million times better than cold.

"Cry is free" is one constantly used sentence to users who are complaining about something. But what most don't know, is that this sentence is actually a huge lie. As far as we know, tears consist of water and 0,9 gram salt per litre. And both of these ingredients are not free. Here I listed the price for 10 litre tears for the countries of the G8. I used the following formula (price is in US Dollar): (Price 100 gram salt/100)x9 + (Price 1 cubic litre water/100) = Price for 10 Litre Tears France: 0,20 $ Italy: 0,17 $ Germany: 0,19 $ United Kingdom: 0,22 $ USA: 0,18 $ Canada: 0,18 $ Japan: 0,18 $ Russia: 0,16 $ That means Russia has the cheapest cry. Thank you for reading.

Coldzera is by far the best player who ever played CS GO. It doesn't matter if SK will become champion again or not, it's just a matter of fact. Close to Coldzera, there's no Olof, Shox, KennyS, Snax or any other.

2017-07-18 09:44
Coldzera is a monster and when the rest of team are delivering SK is unstoppable
2017-07-18 00:00
Where are all those analysts saying Faze Astralis or even G2 are strong contender besides SK. SK are on whole another level recently, clear favorites to win another major.
2017-07-18 00:19
Well to be honest, SK said themselves that that they feel G2 are only ones who have a real clue how to play against them.Even a respectable bo3 won by baguettes.It's just that they are too inconsistent, and unpredictable.
