In their first game of the tournament, the Danes of Heroic faced the Russians of forZe. The map choice fell upon Overpass, a map both teams have great statistics on.
forZe got off to a good start on the T-side, winning the pistol round, and converting the second. After that point, the favorites of Heroic took over completely. "cadiaN" won the AWP-duel versus "zorte" by a large margin, and "TeSeS" was allowed to do whatever he wanted, which made it very hard for the Russians to really threaten the Danes. At halftime Heroic led by 11-4.
The second half did look a little better for the Russians as they were able to make a dent in the Heroic armor, but the lead of the Danes was just a tad too large, and Heroic picked up the win at 16-9.
