Team Secret provided Dota 2 fans with one of the best plays of The International 2019 but it was not enough to save them from defeat by a determined Evil Geniuses.
The amazing teamfight came at the end of the second game in the upper bracket round-one match at TI9 in Shanghai as Puppey's men battled back to make it 1-1.
It thrilled the thousands of fans watching in the arena in Shanghai and delighted those watching via live streams at home.
Things were looking good for Secret 15 minutes into game three, with a 92 per cent win probability.
But it came in vain as EG played superbly in game three to upset the odds and progress to the upper bracket second round, where they will face defending International champions OG. OG had beaten Newbee earlier on Wednesday.
Secret - among many fans' and pundits' favourites to take the TI9 title - find themselves in the lower bracket second round and will fcae Mineski, who beat Natus Vincer in lower bracket round one.
