Esports day-by-day: PSG Talon in Mid-Season Invitational action

An intriguing and varied week of Esports lies ahead with key tournaments taking place in Dota 2, League of Legends and Counter Strike: Global Offensive.

The week begins with more action in the Dota 2 ESL Berlin Major while on Tuesday and Wednesday the Mid-Season Invitational - one of the biggest events on the League of Legends circuit - begins with its playoff stage.

There is also the final of the CS:GO Brazy Party to look forward to before action in the Elisa Invitational and the Call of Duty League at the end of the week.

Monday

Dota 2: Playoffs commence in Berlin Major

The latest Major in the world of Dota 2 - the ESL One Berlin Major in Germany - has not disappointed and on Monday things go up a gear with the start of the tournament's playoffs.

The group stage has concluded with the top four in each section advancing to the upper bracket of the playoffs and the teams which placed fifth and sixth also progressing to the knockouts, but starting out in the lower bracket.

Gaimin Gladiators, 9 Pandas, Tundra Esports, OG and Team Spirit all went unbeaten in the Berlin Major group stage and are worth keeping an eye on.

Tuesday

League of Legends: Mid-Season Invitational gets underway with play-in stage

With a prize pool of $250,000, the Mid-Season Invitational is always one of the most highly anticipated events on the League of Legends calendar and the S-Tier tournament returns this week, starting with the play-in stage on Tuesday.

The MSI is an international event which features the winners of the nine Riot Games League of Legends Spring Splits along with the runners-up from the best divisions.

It gives some of the biggest teams on the League of Legends circuit the opportunity to battle with the best from other countries with a view to compete in the end-of-season World Championship.

On Tuesday, PCS Spring side PSG Talon are 4/9 to beat DetonatioN FocusME, who ply their trade in the LJL Spring and are 13/8 shots to prevail.

The later game, meanwhile, pits 1/12 G2 Esports, who were winners of this year's LEC Winter, against Brazilian organisation LOUD, who can be backed at 6/1 to pull off a shock win.

Wednesday

League of Legends: Bilibili Gaming involved in MSI play-ins

The play-in stage of the aforementioned League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational continues on Wednesday with another two matches.

The first is expected to be very one-sided as the runners-up in the LPL Spring - one of the most competitive leagues in the world - take on the best side from the Latin American division.

LPL big guns Bilibili Gaming are 1/200 to win their match with Movistar R7, who are 16/1 to win the match.

The other game on Wednesday is a little more even with Golden Guardians of the LCS priced at 4/7 to defeat GAM Esports, who play in the VCS Dawn and are 5/4 to win.

CS:GO: Brazy Party reaches its conclusion

Last week it was all about the Brazy Party in CS:GO and the A-Tier event reaches its conclusion with the Grand Final on Wednesday.

The quarter-finals of the tournament took place on Monday with the semi-finals on Tuesday and in the Grand Final the remaining two teams will battle it out for $133,000.
