Posted by cmsadminGG November 26, 2017

The one-day CS:GO tourney BLAST Pro Series: Copenhagen 2017 CS:GO has just ended, and Brazilian squad SK Gaming defeated home team Astralis 2-1 to claim the championship. BLAST Pro Series was an unorthodox tourney; not only was it completed in just one day, it also featured the BLAST Pro Standoff show match. The Standoff featured five 1v1 aim duels between the third-place team and an opponent of their choosing.

Though before the standoff and the finals, the single round-robin group stage was first played between the six participating teams. Hometown favorites Astralis took the top spot with a 4-1-0 (W/D/L) record, while SK Gaming settled in at 2nd place with their 3-0-2 record. As it was a one day event, the top two teams proceeded to the Grand Finals.

The BLAST Pro Standoff was played right after the round-robin, and it featured 3rd place team FaZe Clan against their chosen opponents North. Each of their players then had a 1v1, with the first player to reach 10 kills winning the round. North’s valde had a great start, as he won the round 10-7 against FaZe’s rain. FaZe answered in the next rounds as Niko and olofmeister won their close matches against aizy and k0nfig. Karrigan then sealed FaZe’s win in round 4, as he won 10-4 against North’s MSL. FaZe’s win in the show match gave the team an extra 20,000 USD in prizes.

For the Grand Finals, Astralis started out strongly to the delight of the Copenhagen crowd as they won the first game 16-11. SK bounced back in Game 2, as they quickly took the win 16-8. The deciding Game 3 was a BLAST! Astralis took nine straight rounds to open the game on Cache, but SK regained their composure to end the first half 9-6. The game’s second half saw SK bounce back even more to force overtime.

In Overtime, it was SK that took the win 3-1, which meant that the Brazilians won Game 3 with a score of 19-16, and the Finals 2-1.
