BIG vs 500 Preview and Predictions: Paris Major 2023 European RMR B

Germany takes on the power of Bulgaria in BIG vs 500 in the Paris Major European RMR B

It’s been a mixed time for both BIG and 500 so far at the Paris Major Regional Major Rankings. Both teams won a match while losing another, but since 500’s win came later, they’ll have a slight advantage in terms of morale. BIG are no strangers to losses, though, and they’d probably take their one win so far with open arms if it weren’t for the circumstances of their loss. If you’re into CSGO betting, this preview will tell you all you need to know about these two teams.


Just when things were looking good for BIG, they ended up losing to 9INE in Overtime on Mirage despite having had a chance to close things out in regulation. The Germans had a decent first half, but couldn’t emulate their success on the attacking side and fell completely flat once in OT. They’ll have to get their act together to achieve a win against 500.

Player To Watch



Bulgaria isn’t exactly known for its CSGO players, but after a certain ex-Evil Geniuses AWPer, 500 players are trying to change that. The strangely-named team were humbled by Danish powerhouse Heroic in Round 1, but bounced back strongly by taking out Team Spirit. Now their fate is in their hands, and a win in this last Best of 1 fixture could set the tone for the rest of their tournament.
