This is shaping up to be one heck of a year for Gambit Esports. Not only did they walk away from BLAST with another first-place tournament finish, they did so only dropping one map the whole time — Ancient to NAVI in the Upper Bracket Final.
As we mentioned, Gambit’s winning ways earned the team a cool $225,000 and a guaranteed spot in the BLAST Premier World Finals, taking place in December 2021. Not too bad at all for one week of CSGO.
