Esports News – The fusion of the largest continent and biggest esports tournament in the world is not something CS:GO fans would want to miss. Perfect World, a Chinese esports organization, is pleased to announce that Asia will now experience the biggest CS:GO tournament at Pudong Shangri-La Hotel in Shanghai, China starting today.
Perfect World is the same host of the Asia Minor Championship for PGL Major Krakow 2017 and the main distributor of CS:GO in China after buying the intellectual rights from Valve in 2016. It’s the only company that allowed Chinese players to sign-up for a CS:GO account and enter low-latency Chinese servers and instant Prime matchmaking status. It is then safe to say that CS:GO Asia Summit is not just a competition, but a bridge connecting Asia-Pacific esports players to the world.
The best teams in Asia-Pacific region are rivals for the $60,000 prize pool of CS:GO Asia Summit. Perfect World has directly invited 4 CS:GO teams in this one-day event, namely: TyLoo, Grayhound Gaming, MVP PK, and B.O.O.T-dream[S]cape. Most of the participants are Asia’s local favorites. Tyloo recently won the Starladder ImbaTV Invitational Chongqing 2018, and B.O.O.T-dream[S]cape bagged 3rd place in the WESG 2017 Asia Pacific Finals.
Individual players, two players from each team and two invited guests, will first compete under the banners Asia CAS Howl and Asia CAS Lore for best-of-one (BO1) showmatch. Benjamin “moxie” Kou and QiFang “Karsa” Su will team up with Hansel “BnTeT” Ferdinand of TyLoo, Sean “Gratisfaction” Kaiwai of Grayhound, and Hyun-Pyo “XigN” Lee of MVP PK for the CAS Howl. BingYuan “tb” Li will team up with Ke “Mo” Liu of TyLoo, Benedict “Benkai” Tan of B.O.O.T-dream[S]cape, Ollie ‘Dickstacy’ Tierney of Grayhound, and Keun-Chul “solo” Kang of MVP PK.
All the team matches are in best-of-three (BO3) format, and a single-elimination bracket will entirely be used for the one-day tournament. The prize pool is spread among the winning teams in three divisions: $30,000 for the first place, $15,000 for the 2nd place, and $7,500 for 3rd-4th place.

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
