During the Overpass rounds, the polish was still going aggressive, while the danish went for a more defensive play style, which did lead to a close win with a score of 16 to 14 for Astralis, but only after Kjaerbye won a 1v1 against Snax.

And finally, during the deciding rounds on Train, there were a bunch of comebacks from the Danes. VP had a strong start, which leads to Astralis have an uphill battle, with a very low economy state, But in the end, Astralis won with a 16 to 14 and winning the pot of $500,000 USD.
