Gambit Esports Defeats Virtus.pro to Win IEM Katowice 2021

Gambit Esports claim the IEM Katowice 2021 trophy after an action-filled series against their CIS opposition Virtus.pro. The team who was known as ‘Gambit Youngsters’ up until a few months back has now made a name for themselves internationally.

Gambit Esports came all the way from the play-ins stage and eliminated teams like G2, Team Spirit, and Na’Vi to reach the grand finals.

Gambit defeated Virtus.pro 3-1 in the finals to claim the USD 400,000 prize pool. The actual finals series was quite one-sided, with Virtus.pro taking the first map, before Gambit proceeded to put on a dominant showing, winning the next two maps 16-6 and 16-4. In the final map, Gambit closed it out 16-12 to take home the tournament.

The next event in the CS:GO calendar year will be the ESL Pro League Season 13, which will test again whether Gambit can replicate such a performance.
