Gambit win PGL Major Krakow after dismantling Immortals

1
After a remarkable turn of events, the previous legends of Gambit Esports prevailed in the grand final of PGL Major Krakow. The newly crowned Major champions have overcome their Brazilian counterparts in a 2-1 victory (Cobblestone 4:16; Train 16:11; Inferno 16-10).

More Cobblestone drops? Not really

Immortals started on the T side on their map pick by winning the pistol round glided to a 3-0 lead. Danil "Zeus" Teslenko got three in the first gun round and put his team up to 3-2 with the help of his Kazakh friends.

The Brazilians, however, impersonated SK Gaming - each of they players had plays worthy of a Major Grand Final - first it was Vito "kNg" Giuseppe, then Lucas "steel" Lopes, and finally Henrique "HEN1" Teles with a quad kill and a 1-on-3 clutch in the eighth round. Immortals embarked on total domination to win nine rounds and losing only one, closing the half 12-3.

Lopes denied Gambit once again in the second pistol round with three USP-S headshots, and Immortals rallied on to map point. Thanks to Rustem "mou" Telepov, Gambit were able to win one force buy before the Brazilians hit the last nail in the medieval coffin.

Welcome to Gambit Railways

Proven to be comfortable on Train, the remains of Gambit that were destroyed on Cobblestone managed to collect and form quite an offensive on the attacking side.

Securing the pistol round and responding to the reset that they were put in after losing the second round, Gambit displayed confidence throughout the earlier half as they racked up a total of 6 rounds before facing opposition from the Brazilians.

The double AWP setup from Immortals was quickly adapted on the losing end.
Unfortunately for Immortals, Telepov managed to respond with the polar opposite giving Gambit a successful way to breach the Brazilians and secure the last rounds for a total of 9 as the first half concluded.

Immortals used the same dynamic play as in previous Train games to overthrow the Gambit defense and secure the second half triplet. However, once the guns were out, the men of Teslenko found themselves superior as they had successfully predicted they play of the Brazilians.

Despite trying to retain the control, Immortals won a round at 12-10, which proved to be decisive for Gambit who responded with a complete control of the opponent's economy as they reset the Brazilian side.

With no money left, Immortals were pushed out of Train as Gambit closed the game at 16-11, placing the third map as a decider.

Inferno to decide

On Inferno, Gambit set up a great defense, taking off to winning another triplet on the defending side. Continuing to placing themselves in great positions, the Kazakhs looked promising ahead of the gun round.

Pulling out the guns yet again, Gambit converted the first gun round to secure a 5-0 lead before Immortals could snatch their first round and successfully overthrew Gambit on the A site. Fortunately for Gambit, the Kazakhs could respond in the coming round by shutting the doors to the B site and reset the Brazilians.

Capitalizing on their momentum, Gambit saw themselves in the driver seat for the entire half as Abay 'HObbit' Khasenov and mou continued to put up huge numbers, ending the half 11-4 in favor of the previous Legends.

Eager to crawl back into the game, Immortals bruteforced their way to secure both the pistol round and the three incoming rounds to settle the score at 11-8. Luckily, Khasenov came through in the heat of the moment as he swung back on the Brazilian side to replenish the energy of Gambit.

A magnificent performance by HObbit made it clear that Gambit were set on to the winning grounds. Completely demolishing the Brazilian side, HObbit found himself clutching out the last half with over 26 kills on Inferno as Gambit went on to crown themselves the PGL Major Krakow 2017 champions.
