On the other hand Ismailcan “XANTARES” Dörtkardeş was on another level today as he clutched some very important rounds for his team and took the half time score to 8-7 in favor of Vitality.
The second pistol round was also won by Vitality and that gave them a good boost to recover all the lost rounds in the first half and the rest of the job was done by ‘Zyw0O’ who finished the map with a 23K-19D and Vitality secured the map 16-11.
The third map of the game was Dust2 and BIG was not ready to give up so easily so although losing the pistol round, they did a force buy on the second round and that worked for them and they were quite dominant on their T side and secured the half 10-5.
In the second half Vitality did try to make a comeback by winning the pistol round yet again but again losing on the force buy rounds and then eventually losing a few clutch situations and BIG finally taking the map 16-10 in their favor and equalising the series 2-2 and taking to the fifth and the final map of the series that was Overpass.
