Virtus.pro [16:6] Team EnVyUs onTrain

3 kills by NEO during the pistol round on the CT side

byali clutches a 2 v 2 situation
During the 5th round, Pawel “byali” Bielinski and Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski were left in a 2 v 2 with the planted bomb. It wouldn't be that bad if not for their HP pools: 19 HP for byali and 46 for Snax.
Despite that, and the fact that opponents were alerted of Pawel's position, he was able to outaim Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom, and then easily outnumber the remaining EnVyUs player.
TaZ и Snax win a 3 v 3 situation
The penultimate round of the first half of the match was topped off by a classical Mag-7 backstab by Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski in the popdog area. Exploiting enemies' confusion, Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas was able to outmaneuver them from the CT spawn
Great sense of teamplay from byali and Snax allowed Virtus.pro's captain to take opponents by surprise and claim the round.
4 kills by Snax bring victory to Virtus.pro
Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski became the MVP of the match's last round by grabbing 4 kills while attacking a closed plant.

Virtus.pro [16:10] Team Liquid on Mirage
The right to advance to ESG Tour Mykonos' 2017 playoffs was decided between Virtus.pro and Team Liquid. Before that, Team Liquid won against German team BiG (16:14 on Overpass).
Polish players made a comeback from a 3:6 score after the first half and claimed victory over the American team.
4 kills by byali in the pistol round on the T side
Fast bombsite A rush, covered by flashbangs – rather risky tactic on Mirage, especially on the pistol round. Due to the lack of a bodyarmor, enemy can simply outnade the main positions on retake.
That is unless one of the players plows through the CT spawn, demolishing all enemies in sight. Pawel “byali” Bielinski, proud user of such technique, claimed 4 kills by the end of the round.
TaZ's B site triple entryfrag
In the 10th round, polish players decided to execute a fast B bombsite rush. Classic scheme with attacking players dropping from windows ended successfully – thanks to three swift entryfrags by Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas.
This victory allowed polish guys to restore the economy and swap to CT with a score of 7:8.
pashaBiceps makes quick work of three players in the connector
One of the most highlighted moments from the Team Liquid match. Enemy attempted to split attack the A bombsite, but to no avail: pasha's superior positioning allowed him to notice and decimate his opponents when they were crossing the connector.
Last shot deserves a special notice – pashaBiceps managed to get a calculated wallbang kill on nitr0.
