HLTV.org live from Beijing

HLTV.org is now live from Beijing, China, where we will be covering ESL's first stand-alone CS:GO stadium event in the country, IEM Beijing, over the next four days.

IEM Beijing is about to kick off with eight teams, including the top two in the ranking, Evil Geniuses and Astralis, who will be fighting for their share of a $250,000 prize pool, a spot at IEM Katowice 2020, and a point in the ongoing Intel Grand Slam season.

The tournament will start with a two-group best-of-three GSL stage during the first two days before moving on to a single-elimination bracket with two best-of-three semi-finals and a best-of-five grand final.
