r1seCup reaches semi-finals

Four of Brazil's strongest teams will face off on Saturday in São Paulo at the offline finals of r1seCup.


The Top Run Arena, in São Paulo, will play host to the offline finals of r1seCup, an eight-team invitational tournament with 1,300 BRL (approximately $400) on offer.


Keyd Stars, who managed a top-eight finish at ESL One Katowice last month, are heavily favoured to win the cup, but Dexterity, boasting players like Arthur "prd" Resende and Henrique "hen1" Teles, are expected to give the former KaBuM side a run for their money.

Dexterity, on the other hand, will take on Rampage Killers in what is expected to be a clean sweep for Resende's men.
