Virtus.pro and Team Secret have edged one step closer to the Chongqing Major championship title.
The herd was culled as four teams moved on from the lower bracket best-of-ones and four went home.
PSG.LGD and Virtus.pro triumphed over their opponents, continuing to prove they are two of the best teams in the world.
On day one of the Chongqing Major Playoffs, Team Secret continued their impressive performance from the group stage, while Fnatic and EHOME slugged it out in a competitive and very entertaining three game series, which saw the latter team rise above.
Liquid even with a stand-in is still a team that should be feared, taking the top seed of their group while Fnatic managed to dominate their group with a clean score.
