100 Thieves were not without difficulty, but they defeated Swole Patrol in the first fight with a score of (2:1) on the cards. “Thieves” played poorly on Train, but Vertigo and Inferno showed their best performance. The most successfully played as part of jkaem, which was able to issue 75 kills with 54 deaths.

- 100 Thieves lost in the year before the fight
- 100 Thieves chose Overpass as their first choice and this is repeated in every fight. Unsuccessfully, they perform at Inferno, where they have only 25% of wins. The cards with the best success are Nuke and Dust2

Evil Geniuses vs 100 Thieves Prediction
The match will be held in an equal fight and, most likely, three cards will be played. Evil Geniuses last time didn’t play the best against the Australians, but before that they had consistently proven their superiority. Given the fact that the “thieves” hesitantly played in the opening match, we bet on Evil Geniuses win.
