The first season of Intel Grand Slam is moving on with another huge CS: GO tournament just behind the corner. Needless to say, I am referring to ESL One New York 2017 which has everything it needs to captivate the audience from all over the world… not just fans but people who enjoy eSports betting too – this will be a safe haven for them to invest their money. Furthermore, with 6 top-tier invited teams and 2 which made their way through NA and EU qualifiers, the stage is set and finely poised for spectacular matches.
Besides prestige and honor, players will also battle for a whopping $250,000 of the total prize pool for this tournament. Obviously, Brooklyn's Barclays Center is going to be packed with eSports fans from all over the world, eagerly waiting for the tournament to start. Luckily, the waiting period is nearly over as there are less than 10 days (from the time of writing this article) till the official start of ESL One New York 2017. With that said, there's plenty of information regarding it. So, why don't we take a closer look at it and see what exactly can we expect!

As far as the tournament format is concerned, things have not yet been formally disclosed. However, if we are to take guidance from last year's ESL One New York 2016, the tournament will be divided into 2 parts – group stage and playoffs. The group stage will see the 8 teams seperated into two groups, from which the two highest placed teams will advance into the playoffs. The group stage games will be played in Best-of-One. If a decider match is needed it will be played in Best-of-Three. Starting from the playoffs all games will be Best-of-Threes and feature a single elimination mode.
