In what can only be described as ‘genius’, 19 year old s1mple_300_350CSGO player Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostylev pulled off the perfect distraction to claim an unlikely win during Natus Vincere’s semi-final round against Team Liquid. Kostylev used his own sniper rifle to cause opponent Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella to focus towards the wrong spot above him, allowing a simple pistol shot to end the round.

Yup, genius.

You can check out that entire game below, along with the third that Natus Vincere would eventually claim over Team Liquid, 2-1, and later the overall title at the ESL One New York championships with 2-1 victory over Virtus.pro. Congrats to the team, but clearly the winner here is Kostylev.
