Congratulations to Gambit, the winners of PGL Krakow 2017! They take home $500,000 of the $1,000,000 prize pool. This is their first Major title.
Gambit came from behind to claim victory over Immortals. They lost Cobblestone(4-16) but then rallied to win on Train(16-11) and Inferno(16-10). If you missed any of the matches or want to watch the highlights, you can download all the games from the PGL Krakow 2017 tab in the WATCH menu.
We’d like to thank all the teams, everyone at PGL , and most of all the Counter-Strike community for making this tournament possible.
The road to the finals has seen its share of legends go down in flames. Astralis were overwhelmed by Gambit. Immortals stunned with a commanding win over Virtus.pro. Both teams will now battle to see who can win their first Major Championship.
With 8 teams left, legends old and new will battle on the road to the Finals.
Can the home crowd rally Virtus.pro to victory over North? Will Gambit continue their dominance from the group stage or will Fnatic stop them in their tracks? Who will survive the epic matchup between SK Gaming and Astralis? Immortals and BIG clash to see who can advance in their first Major. Watch all the action starting Friday at 6am EST (12:00 AM CEST) on the official Twitch stream.
And remember to make your Playoff picks for the Pick’Em Challenge before the matches begin on Friday.
