Virtus.pro claim the top spot at ASUS Summer 2009, as they defeated k23 16-14 on dust2 in the Grand Final.

The Russian team had the upper hand in the Grand Final, as they only needed one map win, while k23 would need two to win overall. The playground to kick it all off on should be dust2. Virtus.pro started as attackers, where strong defense by k23, several times put a great stop to their attacks. The Kazakhstanis could secure a 9-6 score at halftime.

Virtus.pro should then put up strong CT play, helped by a lucky defuse by Denis "diNGo" Kolomenskiy, in a 1v4 situation. k23 took rounds but so did Virtus.pro, which evened the match out several times. Virtus.pro should however secure a win, when taking the 30th round of the match, winning 16-14.


Broken tag



This secure Virtus.pro first place at ASUS Summer 2009, while k23 will have to do with second place. The Russians hereby secure their first win since they topped Arbalet Cup #3 in mid-July. The final standings for ASUS Summer 2009 go as follows.

I really thought k23 had dust2 locked down, but VP just came strong as CT. Well played both, can't wait for Arbalet Cup Ukraine and Europe.
2009-08-29 23:53
Haha, your favorite team lost =) In the begining of the match many thought that k23 will take dust2 - VP buying berettas etc... =)))
2009-08-30 00:37
k23 is not my favorite team, I do however cheer for them when they play.

unlucky k23!! really hoped they would win the finals too... Neways, VP have become too strong!!! Nikita is so sexy...(i mean his style)...xD btw the name Nikita in Asia is regarded as a female's name..
2009-08-30 02:39
so as in portugal. any name that ends "a" is a girl name.
2009-08-30 13:38
No - it is even more common for to give this name for a male, than a female.
2009-08-30 14:23
wtf is wrong with DTS they should be better than all those teams there...
2009-08-30 02:51
