Gambit defeat VP; qualify for Major playoffs

After a rough start on Train, Gambit was able to take control of the game against Virtus.pro and secure a win that got them into the PGL Krakow Major playoffs.

Virtus.pro got the advantage early into Train, picking up a 5-0 lead as CT's, but a single round win from Gambit forced the Poles to eco, showing how close the previous rounds were. Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko's side used that opening to swing the momentum back in their favor, with Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev being their main main early into the half.

After tying the score at 6-6, Gambit took the lead by cleaning up another anti-eco and managed to finish up the half with an 8-7 lead.

Gambit is the first team to secure a spot in the playoffs

Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski' 3K on the first buy round unlocked the B site defense and get Virtus.pro back into the match after losing the Terrorist pistol round.

The game was tied at 10-10 when Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov's double kill put the stop to the B site push from the Poles, starting a series of rounds wins that lead to Gambit closing out the game 16-11.

bo1 heroes strike again, lol xD Btw Zeus was the problem ;-) I wasn't sure if VP were back to T1 and I was right. 2-3 is coming? Looks like nobody can challenge SK at this tournament, and it's just sad. P.S. Does pasza eat adderall for a lunch or what? He was so slow 2 years ago!

FaZe sucked at the previous event too, Idk how you haven't noticed that. Gambit may get lucky to play against some chokers like G2 or any NA team or some T2 team, but once they play against SK - they will get raped as hard as possible.

vp will qualify for sure, and wont play gambit in 1/4 so gj for both
2017-07-18 22:09
yes i am proud that my 4th favourite team did manage qualify (gambit), but I am sure that Gambit would've done it 3-1 or atleast 3-2. In VP terms I am not quite sure a 3-0 would be much cooler, but thanks for the good words :-)
2017-07-18 22:14
bro taz neo and pasha are the absolute veterans of cs and are loved by everybody. i've been going to kindergarden when they won the major and im 21 now :D the hype will help them go 3-1
