There was tough competition.

Only a matter of weeks after claiming victory at the cs_summit, SK Gaming have secured another tournament win at the Intel Extreme Masters Sydney, earning themselves $100,000 USD in the process.

They faced another on-form team in the final, however, who were FaZe Clan, a team who only last month won the StarSeries S3, but SK Gaming managed to conquer them 3-1 in the grand final to seal their fate.

Another successful team, Astralis, fell to FaZe Clan in the semi finals of the competition too, as did OpTic Gaming to SK Gaming, so there was no shortage of talent on offer in Australia, making SK Gaming's win all the more impressive.

Danish side North will no doubt be disappointed to finish with a 1-3 record, as they're a side that are still finding their feet, but their win against OpTic Gaming will no doubt give them some confidence.

As for SK Gaming, it appears they've found some luck after a series of second place finishes, including the DreamHack Masters Las Vegas, but do you think they can continue this run?
