Esports News – Team HAVU Gaming, one of Finland’s top-tier representatives in the international CSGO circle, won the recent IESF World Championship 2018. They took down the Swedish team Flow and secured the title after a 3-0 victory in Dust2 (16-6), Cache (16-4), and Train (16-8).
The IESF World Championship 2018 was held in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. It introduced 26 CSGO teams from all over the world to battle the title and prize pool out in an “Olympic Style” gaming. In here, teams could only get players from one country, and only one team should represent that country in the competition.
The tournament began with a round-robin stage featuring Best of One matches. Surprisingly, many notable teams faced elimination at this stage such as Vietnam’s Revolution, Switzerland’s Berzerk, Denmark’s AaB Elite. These teams also carried some of the most popular CSGO players in the world, Cong “crazyguy” Anh Ngo and Manuel “SolEk” Zeindler’s Berzerk.
The dominating teams at the event, such as HAVU Gaming, Nexus, Flow and FrostFire advanced to the playoffs. Flow eliminated SCARZ Absolute shortly after and managed to reach the grand final by taking down Ground Zero and Beyond.
Meanwhile, the winning team HAVU went through difficulties after facing two strong contenders, Giants, and Nexus. Some maps took more than 10 rounds, but HAVU managed to close each and every round before the grand finals.
The victories of HAVU Gaming and Flow brought the tournament to a Nordic grand final. The two faced each other in a Best of 5 format, but it actually ended in three rounds because of HAVU’s undefeated run.
It all started on Dust2 when HAVU turned their 10-5 CT side into a 16-6 lead with a near-flawless T side before heading to the next map, Cache. In here, HAVU’s Rifler Jesse “zehN” Linjala executed an impressive performance in 28K-11D, securing a 16-14 victory for HAVU. The third and final map was Train, the decider round for Flow. HAVU still dominated half the round and finished the T-side with a 9-6 lead. In the end, the winning team closed out the game with 16-8.

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.
