The first series of the day was hotly contested as Swole Patrol managed to edge out Inferno against ATK 16-12 following a 10-1 start of their CT-side.

Following Inferno, Ricky "floppy" Kemery led the way for his team in a close win on Mirage. ATK won their CT-side 8-7 before climbing up to 12 rounds on their T-side. Swole manage to break down ATK's lead as they found seven out of the next eight rounds before ATK claimed the last three to narrowly take Mirage 16-14.

Unfortunately for Swole Patrol, before the start of the third map Jason "neptune" Tran had to step away from the game resulting in Daniel "fRoD" Montaner taking his place on Dust2. Even with the veteran coach filling in for the youngster, Swole Patrol played admirably almost taking the map before ATK rallied to force overtime before winning the map 19-17.

The next series saw Divine impress against the Brazilian-Argentinian squad of Sharks. On Nuke, Erik "bul" Penny led the server in kills, paving the way for his team to force overtime. However, a strong performance from Ignacio "meyern" Meyer was enough for Sharks to overpower their MDL opposition and take the map 19-17.

Moving onto Inferno, Divine were not ready to be counted out as Daniel "roca" Gustaferri rolled back the years, helping power his squad to a convincing 16-11 win on the map. 

With the series all tied up, Divine started Vertigo in the lead as they won the CT pistol and the following three rounds. However, once Sharks got rolling, they chewed up Divine, maintaining a narrow lead for the remainder of the map, closing out Vertigo and the series with a 16-9 win.
