NRG secure overtime win over Kinguin in Malta

NRG have moved on to the SuperNova CS:GO Malta Group A winner's match by beating Kinguin 19-16 on Train.

The second best-of-one match of the day was played on Train, where Tsvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov deflected an otherwise convincing A hit by Kinguin by taking down three in the first pistol round. NRG easily fended off anything the Poles had in store for them and quickly cruised ahead to seven rounds won before Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas' men could respond.

Kinguin won a pair of rounds before Jacek "MINISE" Jeziak and Vincent "Brehze" Cayonte found themselves in an intense 1v1 post-plant situation which the former won by no-scoping the American on the B site to put his team to a 3-7 deficit. The Poles would further crawl their way back in the match on the back of several multi-kill rounds by MINISE and reached six rounds to NRG's nine at the break.

CeRq topped the scoreboard with 33 kills

Now on the attacking side, Jacob "FugLy" Medina and co. won the second pistol round, which featured a knife kill from Karol "rallen" Rodowicz. NRG would further expand their lead and reach a 12-6 score before Kinguin finally put themselves on the board again by defusing the bomb on the B site.

CeRq would answer back quickly, as the Bulgarian managed a quad-kill with the AK-47 to put his team on 13-7, but NRG would botch the following round against a shoddy buy from their Polish opponents. Kinguin slowly crawled back in the match after the North Americans reached 14 by winning a string of rounds to bring themselves to 12.

NRG then reached match point with a succesful bomb plant, but TaZ' troops had other plans and secured overtime with three round wins in a row in spite of a Ethan "Ethan" Arnold getting a triple-kill in the 30th.

Each team took one of the extra rounds each before Damian "daps" Steele' troops finally secured the win by taking three rounds in a row and close out the match 19-16.

Well, they are pretty stable games. At each tournament there are interesting strats. except for the fact that some players have a bad individual form (not nahtE and Brehze). The main thing to keep the roster. P.S. Sorry for my English. He is very shitty
