Cloud9 played two maps only in January and won one, in other words, they played two games and won one since both games were best of 1. In December they played five maps and won three, converted, they played the same amount and won the same amount because all those games were best of 1. In November they played 12 maps and won five, converted, they played 11 games and won five. In October they played ten maps and won four, in other words, they played 11 matches and won five.

OK, so Cloud9 is 2nd in Group A with two played maps, one win, one loss, a round difference of +2 and three points. fnatic is in the same group with two matches played, one win, one loss, a round difference of -7 and three points. As i said in yesterday's prediction Astralis will be first of course, and these two teams will clash for the second place but what i didn't add into the calculation was the fact that Cloud9 played a shit ton of best of 1 matches in recent weeks and months, and because of that they won yesterday. I don't know how i didn't take that into consideration, but it is good that we placed only a 1/10 bet there.
I believe C9 can win today again, their performance against Astralis was reasonably ok, and they look very decent in clutching crucial moments.
Good luck to all who bet, and don't forget to gamble responsibly!
