This may not be a tournament you have heard of before but, given the talent, is well worth checking out this weekend!
<p>Much has been made about the fall of Polish CSGO over the past two and a half years. The Major-winning squad of five years ago dismantled and, like the Dragon Balls, seem to have scattered across the planet. Pashabiceps has been relegated to streamer/DHL deliveryman [if you caught Cologne], Neo is currently struggling to get Faze back to the top, Taz has been fielding a gritty Kinguin into Devils.one into Aristocracy Polish core, Snax trialled with Mousesports before returning to captain Virtus Pro, and Byali has disappeared entirely. Most recently Polish counter-strike saw two promising orgs, x-kom and AGO, blow up their national scene...as if it was not struggling enough.</p><p>A Polish team has won one international tournament in the past two years; Kinguin at Dreamhack Montreal last September. If featured a VERY similar level field as what we will see this weekend. Additionally it should not be overlooked that this is the first international LAN in 2019 being held in Poland featuring some hometown heroes.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Excited for our first tournament with &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/denniscsgod?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@denniscsgod&lt;/a&gt; 😎&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;See you in a few days! &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/YOeUeFppbh\"&gt;https://t.co/YOeUeFppbh&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— ScreaM (@ScreaM_) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/ScreaM_/status/1148955115371552768?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;10 de julho de 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><p>Based on interviews from the only active members of the former 'Golden Five' [Taz and Neo] the entire experience has been humbling. In recent months we have finally seen Virtus Pro and Aristocracy still hovering around that 'maybe they could do something soon' level. However I think this is a prime lan for Polish CS to make a playoff run with only one clear favorite attending; G2. The French have been boot-camping in preparation for the full summer swing of tournaments and post-player break Berlin Major. That said we saw a very hot-and-cold Tricked lose a 3v1 on match-point against them in the ESL New York Qualifiers, this past week so they are certainly susceptible. They showed improved tactics and teamplay on t-side train and Dust2 continues to be their stomping ground.</p><p>My following plays are based on two things; an undervalued Polish scene which just competed in a Polish LAN this past weekend and only one team that is ahead of the field but not as clearly as the market suggests.</p><p><strong>To Reach the Final:</strong></p><ul> <li><strong>Virtus Pro at 5.50 (9/2) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Bet365 &amp; Start Playing Today!">Bet365</a></strong></li> <li><strong>Aristocracy at 5.50 (9/2) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Bet365 &amp; Start Playing Today!">Bet365</a></strong></li></ul><p><br /><strong>To Win Outright:</strong></p><ul> <li><strong>Virtus Pro at 12.15 (223/20) with <a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&amp;a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Pinnacle</a></strong></li> <li><strong>Aristocracy at 12.22 (561/50) with <a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&amp;a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Pinnacle</a></strong></li></ul>
