Best photos from ESL One Cologne 2019

Take a look at some of the best moments captured by our photographer Josip "brcho" Brtan during the six days of ESL One Cologne 2019.

The sixth edition of the iconic event saw Vitality fight their way through the lower bracket of group B and Liquid dominate their opposition in group A, with the two sides meeting in the grand final after exciting playoff games.

In the end, it was Liquid that claimed the title, chaining four Big Event wins in a row to also secure the $1,000,000 Intel Grand Slam prize. Scroll below to see the best photos from the tournament, or jump over to the galleries to see the full selection.

The full ESL One Cologne 2019 gallery is available here.
