Team Liquid win DreamHack Masters Dallas and Team Secret win ESL One BirminghamPosted on: Jun 03, 2019 By smartlaunch in News and trends,
DreamHack Masters Dallas: Team Liquid are the champions of DreamHack Masters Dallas after defeating ENCE yesterday 2-1 in the grand finals. They won USD 100,000 and scored their second point toward the Intel Grand Slam, which gives USD 1 million to the team that wins four out of 10 ESL, DreamHack, or IEM tournaments this year.
Team Liquid and ENCE are arguably two of the best teams in the world behind Astralis, who’ve been sitting on top for more than a year. Both of these teams have now put a little more pressure on Astralis. The Danes lost their last two tournaments and will probably play against Team Liquid at the ESL Pro League season nine finals on June 18.
ESL One Birmingham: Team Secret shook off a messy start at ESL One Birmingham to climb all the way into the grand finals and win an incredible five-game series against Evil Geniuses yesterday.
After reclaiming the top spot in the Dota Pro Circuit with a victory at the MDL Disneyland Paris Major, Team Secret came into Birmingham as the early favorites to win the whole thing. Team Secret were crowned the ESL One Birmingham champions and this is the fourth ESL victory for Team Secret.
The StarLadder ImbaTV Dota 2 Minor is the next big event on the horizon, running from June 12 to 16. That event will decide the final competitors for the last Major of the season, the EPICENTER Major later this month.
