Sharks, Imperial through to DH Open March SA upper bracket final

9z and Liberty will fight for their tournament lives in an elimination match on Friday.

Sharks and Imperial are through to DreamHack Open March South America upper bracket final following victories over 9z and Liberty, respectively. The two Brazilian teams will face off Thursday for a spot in the grand final of the $30,000 tournament.

Sharks, who were coming off a defeat to Paquetá in the grand final of the WESG Brazil Finals, were in control for the majority of the series and didn't let their opponents hit double-digits on either map. Raphael "⁠exit⁠" Lacerda was in fine form throughout the series, with Romeu "⁠zevy⁠" Rocco, who took the AWP from Jhonatan "⁠jnt⁠" Silva following his addition to the team, leading the charge on Mirage.

exit posted solid numbers on both maps against 9z

Liberty took the lead in the series with an Overpass victory following a great display on the CT side, where Alexandre "⁠ALLE⁠" Santos shined with a 2.17 rating. Gustavo "⁠SHOOWTiME⁠" Gonçalves and Arthur "⁠f4stzin⁠" Schmitt came to Imperial's rescue on Nuke in a back-and-forth affair, with the team completing the reverse sweep on Dust2 after shutting out the Liberty offence once again.

They have a lot of money indeed, it's a new org but I assume that they have a lot of investors. They're building one of the biggest gaming facilities in Brasil. And about hltv, they made one because it's an important tournament I guess

Wouldn’t call it important but it’s a DH event so that actually explains a lot

It's important for SA, I don't know if you follow this scene but we don't have a lot of tournaments with spots to another bigger tournaments. The winner of this event qualifies for IEM Extreme Masters Summer

It might be important for SA but hltv is focused on Big international CS but what you said does make a lot of sense, it’s a DreamHack event which Always have at Least a bit of prestige with a decent price pool and changes to go to bigger events.

It will be a huge domination by Sharks, Imperial will get like 10 rounds in the whole series most likely.
