The first map was Dust 2 and it was picked by Virtus.pro. Both teams were competitive on this map. Virtus.pro and Gambit were showing spectacular gameplay on the T side and that led to the overtime, where Virtus.pro were stronger and finished this Dust with a score of 19-15.

The second map was Vertigo and both teams are traditionally strong on it. And it was proven in the game. Virtus.pro seized an early advantage on the strong CT side. Gambit tried to come back and were near success but “bears” denied this attempt winning the map with a score of 16-14 and finishing the match.

Gambit fall to the lower bracket, while Virtus.pro are waiting for the winner of the BIG vs GODSENT clash to battle for the spot in the semi-finals.
