DreamHack Open Summer is coming up this weekend and we have prepared a viewer's guide where you can find everything you need to know about the event.
Taking place as always in Jönköping, Sweden, DreamHack Open Summer will officially run from June 13-15 and offer $40,000 up for grabs. The start of the tournament's group A will coincide with the BYOC qualifier set to give out two spots for the main event.
