Last weekend was the grand final of the PGL Major of Krakow 2017. The Russian set Gambit faced the Brazilians of Immortals in a best-of-three maps series. Both the teams had a goal of getting the large prize of one million dollars.
The final kicked off with a previous show followed by a show match two against two to encourage the atmosphere. Then began the center of attention of all the spectators, the grand finale of the Major. This intense confrontation was followed by almost 600,000 spectators on the official Twitch channel, in addition to those present in the arena.
The first map chosen was Cobblestone, a favorite of Immortals. So they impressed by leading 12-3 at halftime and finishing the map with a forceful 16-4. But Gambit had not come this far to give away a final. They picked Train as the second map and clenched their teeth to the maximum, winning the map and tying the competition.
The score would have been more comfortable had it not been for the improbable retakes of Henrique “HEN1” Teles. He was armed with his inseparable AWP, winning rounds that for many seemed lost. After the change of side, Hen1 tried to continue with its magic.
However, from the Terror side, the dominance of the AWP is smaller. This was the reason why the boys of Gambit took the second map by 16-11. They drew the final and forced the champion to decide the third and last map.
The third map was Inferno, a friendly map for both sets. But it was a series of phenomenal plays never seen by the Russian squad from the CT side. The big plays allowed them to take a crucial advantage by starting the map with a 9-2 run. The boys of Immortals did not give up and fought to the last breath.
However, Gambit with their duties done and looking very sure of themselves, kept the Brazilians at bay by closing the map 16-10. As we already know, you cannot judge a team by a map but by a complete domination.
By this logic, the boys of Gambit were superior to Immortals in the last two maps and became the champions of PGL Major Krakow 2017.
Team Gambit lost only two matches throughout the tournament and defeated many big cannons, thus earning the title in resounding fashion.
