The next best of one between Cloud9 and oNe resulted in the sole upset of the day as the Brazilians claimed a close 16-12 win on Nuke. Cloud9 began their CT-side in strong form, winning the opening pistol round and climbing up to 4-1. However, the match's momentum began to shift in the favor of oNe following a deagle ace from Pedro "Maluk3" Campos, after which oNe claimed four rounds to trail 6-9 at the half.
After switching sides, oNe mounted a near impenetrable defense on their CT-side, only allowing Cloud9 three more rounds before taking the map. Maluk3 was oNe's standout player, with the 30-year old veteran ending Nuke with a 1.44 rating.
