One of the fan-favorite moments of the match was when TenZ pulled off an absolute shocker. Going into the first round of Haven, the first map of the game, Sentinels looked really strong. They had the map control with smokes and flashes at all the right places. Unfortunately, Cloud9 got two early picks, getting a man advantage over its opponent.

It was time for TenZ to show how goated he is. Going against his former team, Sentinel’s wild card player rushed in with the Ghost. Peeking the right angles at the right time is something TenZ is extremely popular for. Using his cracked skills, TenZ manages to get a sensational pistol ace in the first round.

They took too long…The only info that mitch got was that TenZ pushed short A. They didn’t get info he died. If they did, they would have been inside 20 seconds ago.”
