After a small break that our team required to acquire necessary visas Gambit CS:GO is back to practicing with our new head coach Andrey "Andi" Prokhorov. This month our guys have two LAN events and will begin competing at ESEA Premier 26 and World Cyber Arena 2017 EU Qualifier.
On October 6 - 12 we'll be boot camping in Kiev and will play our first games at ESEA Premier 26. The winner of this league will qualify for the next season of ESL Pro League. Among others, we'll be competing against the likes of Virtus.pro, Space Soldiers and FlipSid3.

On October 13 Gambit will depart to Germany to participate at ROG Masters EMEA. The tournament takes place this weekend in Krefeld. Eight teams will be competing for two spots at the main event that's going to be held at the end of this year in Asia. We'd like to remind that last November in Krefeld Gambit won its first title after the acquisition of Abay "HObbit" Khassenov and Daniil "Zeus" Teslenko.
