pro100 beat HellRaisers to win DreamHack Delhi Invitational
Heading into the six-team event as the two highest-ranked sides, HellRaisers breezed through their group unscathed to take down Goliath in the semi-final, while pro100 progressed through Group A and overran Yalla comfortably on the other side of the bracket to set up the CIS clash in the grand final.
The best-of-three matchup kicked off on Mirage, the pick of HellRaisers, where Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow’s side looked well on their way to closing out the opener commandingly after storming to a 9-2 lead on the Terrorist side. The map was on course for a swift conclusion before a resurgence from pro100, led by an emphatic Mareks "YEKINDAR" Gaļinskis performance, saw a comeback materialise to force overtime, in which the Russian squad flawlessly secured four straight rounds to win 19-15.
With the first map under their belts from an impressive comeback, pro100 entered their own map pick of Train riding the momentum, with Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin’s AWP ripping apart HellRaisers’ defence to help his side surge to a 12-3 halftime lead. With defeat on the horizon, HellRaisers buckled down to secure a series of rounds to narrow the score difference, but multiple impactful kills from Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen ensured pro100 edged over the line to take the second map and emerge champions of the DreamHack Delhi Invitational.
