Video: AdreN - MVP of PGL Major Krakow
To celebrate Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev's MVP worthy performance in Gambit's PGL Major Krakow win, our moviemaker Anton "Molen" Koev compiled the best plays the 27-year-old pulled off at the tournament.
Gambit's run to the Major title started by going 3-0 in the group stage, where the CIS team took down mousesports, G2 and Virtus.pro to secure playoffs with pretty comfortable wins. Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev was crucial in those matches, averaging a 1.67 rating over the three maps.
The 27-year-old cooled off a bit in the match against fnatic, but still picked up above average ratings in the two maps they played, only to put it into a higher gear against Astralis, where he was one of the main factors of Gambit's success—alongside Rustem "mou" Telepov who had an insane game on Overpass.
Coming into the grand finals, AdreN looked out of it, having a horrible game on Cobblestone which he finished with only five kills. After going down 0-1 in the series, AdreN was able to bounce back and continue with the form he showed earlier in the tournament, earning himself a 1.35 and a 1.51 rating on the last two maps—helping Gambit win the series and lift the PGL Major Krakow trophy.
