FURIA hammer North, advance to DreamHack Open Anaheim semis
Any worries FURIA might have had about starting 2020 on a slow note like several others were certainly unwarranted, as the Brazilian side have started off their run in Anaheim in incredibly dominant fashion, first blowing out Endpoint in the opening match before putting on another clinical performance against the Danish side en route to the playoffs.
The Overpass affair was in their hands from the get-go, as North's early attempts towards the B bombsite were met with a forceful response that saw Andrei "arT" Piovezan's men get off to a great start unanswered.
It wasn't until 4-0 that the Danes had a chance with a halfbuy, but Yuri "yuurih" Santos saved the day with a 1v1 clutch, and another similar situation went FURIA's way a few rounds later, this time courtesy of Henrique "HEN1" Teles.
North found themselves unable to break through more than once in the half, which paved the way for a quick closing in the second half, where FURIA lost the pistol round but quickly regained control in the first couple of gunrounds, coming out victorious at 16-3.
