There is plenty of high-level Esports action to enjoy this week with the League of Legends World Championship reaching the quarter-final phase following the conclusion of the groups last week.
And in the realm of Counter Strike: Global Offensive, the BLAST Premier Fall American and European showdowns begin to determine which sides will complete the line-up for next month's finals.
Although it is set to be a busy week in the world of Esports, it is a relatively quiet Monday but there is action in the form of the VALORANT Superdome.
With a prize pool of $30,000, the A-Tier event taking place in Cairo, Egypt features eight teams playing in one big group before moving on to a knockout stage. Among the teams competing are Acend, Geekay Esports and Fnatic.
Once again, Tuesday is a quiet day in the world of Esports but punters can enjoy more VALORANT action in the form of Portugal's Campeonato de Elite, which is into its second stage.
It is just over a month until the CS:GO BLAST Premier Fall Finals begin but there are still two more slots to fill in the high-profile eight-team tournament.
Already OG, Natus Vincere, Team Liquid, FaZe Clan, G2 Esports and Ninjas In Pyjamas have qualified for the finals following their performances in the Fall Groups and the last two teams to reach the finals will be determined by the American and European showdowns.
Both showdowns are straight knockout competitions starting with four quarter-finals and on Wednesday both get underway.
There are two matches taking place in the European showdown on Wednesday - Team Vitality vs TYLOO and Astralis vs Eternal Fire - and one taking place in the American showdown - Complexity Gaming vs Sharks.
The first of the four League of Legends World Championship quarter-finals is scheduled for Thursday as Rogue, the only team based outside of Asia left in the competition, face giants JD Gaming.
On Thursday there are another three fixtures in the BLAST Premier Fall American and European showdowns. Two come from the European competition - BIG vs Sangal and Heroic vs ECSTATIC - and one is in the American edition - MIBR vs Team One.
Friday features the second World Championship quarter-final and as it stands that is set to be LCK juggernauts T1 against Royal Never Give Up.
Royal Never Give Up can boast plenty of international pedigree, having won the Mid-Season Invitational earlier this year, but they are 7/4 to see off T1, who are 2/5 to book their spot in the tournament's semi-finals.
T1 secured their spot in the knockout stage with five wins from six matches in Group A, while Royal Never Give Up finished with an identical record in Group D but had to settle for second spot behind Gen.G.
There are just two matches in the BLAST Premier Fall showdowns on Friday and both matches come from the American showdown, completing its quarter-final schedule.
Evil Geniuses firstly lock horns with Fluxo before 00Nation take on VERTEX.
In the penultimate World Championship quarter-final of the week, red-hot Gen.G are set to lock horns with DWG KIA, who won the event back in 2020 under the banner Damwon Gaming.
This looks like one of the more one-sided quarter-finals in the draw with Gen.G fancied to win at 1/5, while DWG KIA are 10/3 to prevail. Gen.G are 13/8 to go the distance and win this year's World Championship.
After Sunday, the League of Legends World Championship will be down to its final four teams but there is the small matter of the last quarter-final beforehand.
It is set to be between Group C winners DRX and Edward Gaming, who finished runners-up in Group A but are defending world champions. These sides look fairly tough to separate with DRX rated 11/8 to get the win and Edward Gaming available at .Safer Gambling Week (17-23 October) – Let’s talk about safer gambling.
