Could we finally see a Chinese CSGO team make a run?
<div><p>This Beijing tournament is a bit of a peculiar one. It has somehow attracted six of the top ten teams in the world while only holding a $250 000 prize pool AND being on the otherside of the globe. Of course $250k is nothing to scoff at, I am merely pointing out we don't see a lot of top teams competing in Asian CS tournaments at the same time and when we do it is usually for more than $250k. That being said, the likes of Astralis and Evil Geniuses will not be in action again until Arlington, and Vitality, Faze, and 100Thieves are not seeing action until December so...why not!</p><p>No matter how you slice the match-ups in this tournament almost any team can and will beat any other. I say almost because, as usual, there are the likes of some lowlier teams such as Tyloo and Vici in attendance. I am thinking back over the past year and I believe the Katowice Major and London Major of September 2018 was the last time these two made any sort of mark. My point really is that it has been awhile. They have the advantage of being acclimated to a Beijing timezone already, however it has not helped the Chinese teams lift their own trophies before so don't overvalue the 'homefield' factor here.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;🇨🇳 &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/IEM?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#IEM&lt;/a&gt; Beijing-Haidian gets underway tomorrow with the following opening matches!
