  • They eliminated Eternal Fire and G2 Esports on their way to the finals. In the end they defeated FaZe Clan 2-1.
  • For some players, the $100,000 was a huge boost. The 19-year-old Ukrainian Wonderful was able to double his prize money tally with this victory alone. He had previously earned “only” $92,000 with Counter-Strike, now he has earned $192,000 (via esportearnings).

Who made more money? Reaction streamer and commonly known as Gambler Félix “xQc” Lengyel has won $842,137 and 42 cents from Natus Vincere's win by placing a sports bet, as shown in his stream.

This means he can make up for his losses from the quarterfinals, where he bet $200,000 on MOUZ, which lost to G2: That was the game in which a spectator stormed the stage and broke a trophy.

This is what lies behind it: xQc is on a strange path In 2021, he was always annoyed about his susceptibility to gambling and explained here how much money he lost and that he wants to get away from it:

He had stayed away from gambling for years because he knew how susceptible he was to these addiction mechanics. He never wanted anything to do with “gambling” and swore to his viewers that he would never do it:

In the last few months, xQc has apparently turned to the dark side when he took the millions from the online casino Stake to promote Kick, and is now publicly indulging his gambling addiction on a large scale.
