Esports News – Electronic Sports League (ESL) has recently released the four crowd-favorite teams for the upcoming ESL One event in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The invites and the winners from the online qualifiers will compete for a part of the $200,000 USD prize pool.
Team Liquid, SK Gaming, Faze Clan, and Mousesports have all received direct invitations for the said event which takes place from June 13th to 17th—containing the group stages and the playoffs. Leading teams of the online qualifiers from Europe, North America, and South America regions will be joining them in the playoffs.
It is no surprise for fans, however, that the four teams have been chosen by ESL organizers beforehand. They are the giants in CS:GO ever since. Team Liquid recently won the cs_summit 2 and Americas Minor Championship – Boston 2018, SK Gaming dominated two ESL Major events last 2017, Faze Clan emerged second in ELEAGUE Major: Boston 2018 last January, and Mousesports have been claiming first place trophies since they joined CS:GO tournaments in 2016.
In other news, the result of the online qualifiers has yet to be revealed since the first stages are currently on-going and the finals match on May 9. There will be two qualifying spots for Europe and one each for the two American regions. Participants are to undergo a two-step process from open stage to closed stage and will compete for a total of four spots. The finalists heading to the closed qualifier will battle under a double-elimination bracket.
The Group Stage takes place on June 13th to 15th. Each group will have 4 teams in a double-elimination format and best-of-three matches (BO3), but only two teams can advance to the playoffs on June 16th to 17th. The semifinals are also in BO3 format and the grand final is in BO5 format, but both has single-elimination bracket.
The grand event will be hosted in Mineirinho Arena, the biggest indoor sporting arena in Brazil with 25,000 seats. Organizers of ESL announced that they are currently working with the venue’s officials to secure the arena’s capacity and safety measures for the event.

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.
