Today, in a principal battle for the semifinals, our guys met with fnatic, who twice already did not let Gambit go beyond the quarterfinal stage of the Major.
For the whole game the score on Train was pretty close. The teams took turns to win the chains of 3-4 rounds and the first half ended with a one round advantage for Swedes. Gambit managed to break ahead playing for T but by the end the opponent added the won rounds. Everything was decided on one match point of Gambit, which we, fortunately, could make work - the victory of our guys with a score of 16:14! On Inferno, fnatic's pick, our team started well and was 5 rounds ahead but further the Swedes managed to find their game and finish the half with their one round advantage. Fnatic tried to knock down Gambit's pace, which they acquired as T but the guys didn't let the opponent's comeback happen: in this even match we went over the Swedes 16:12!
Gambit managed to get even with fnatic: we won in the quarterfinals of Major with a score of 2:0! For the first time in history our team reached the sem final of Major! For the entire tournament, the guys did not lose to any of their opponents and at the moment they are the only representative of the CIS CS:GO at the main tournament. We are waiting for an equally exciting confrontation, where our guys will compete with Astralis for reaching the final of PGL Krakow Major!
