The final rounds of the ESL One New York Counterstrike: Global Offensive tournament were held last night. You’ve already seen someone toss their gun at another player in the semi finals. Here are some other amazing plays from the final match between Natus Vincere and

NaVi defeated Virtus in a three round contest, taking home a $125,ooo prize. An initial steamroll by Virtus on Cobblestone was answered by strong play on Train and Mirage.

Here are some of the best plays, as collected by the ESL. Keep a particular eye on Virtus’ Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski as you check out these clips. He pulled off an amazing 1v4 pisol clutch that stole the show, even if his team lost in the end.


The match ended with a sneaky defuse as Ladislav ‘GuardiaN’ Kovács steathily made his way through the smoke at Mirage’s bomb site A. It was a bold move that paid off, ending an energized finals with some guile. It was a great match all around. Well played to both teams! You had us on the edge of our seats the entire time!
