ESL One Berlin Major results

Gaimin Gladiators have emerged as the Berlin Major champions following a perfect run through the Playoffs, claiming 2-0 victories over the likes of Team Spirit, OG and 9Pandas.

And that incredible run led Gaimin to face off against Team Liquid in the Grand Final, who had worked their way up through the Playoff's lower bracket. And despite Team Liquid's best efforts, Gaimin Gladiators were able to claim a decisive 3-1 win. Gaimin's victory was aided in particular by a sterling performance from Anton "dyrachyo" Shkredov, who helped his team get their hands on the Berlin Major trophy.

With their victory, Gaimin Gladiators have been awarded $200,000 out of the $500,000 prize pool, alongside 500 Pro Circuit points. The overall prize pool split is as follows.

Place Team Prize Money DPC Points
1st Gaimin Gladiators $200,000 500
2nd Team Liquid $100,000 450
3rd 9Pandas $75,000 400
4th Evil Geniuses $50,000 350
5th-6th Tundra Esports, OG $25,000 300
7th-8th Team Aster, Talon Esports $12,500 200


It's an incredible result for Gaimin Gladiators, made only more impressive by the fact that this is their second Major win in a row. Gaimin previously emerged as the champions of the Lima Major - where, coincidentally, they also faced off with Team Liquid in the Grand Final, claiming a 3-0 victory. They are now the fourth team in Dota 2 history to win two Majors in a row - joining the likes of OG, and PSG.LGD.

Time will tell if they can keep up their winning streak at the next Dota 2 Major. The Bali Major is due to take place from June 29-July 9, and will close out the DPC before The International later this year.  And you'll be able to follow along with every match of that, and everything else in Dota 2, via our Dota 2 match schedule.
