Twisted Minds vs VERTEX Preview and Predictions: Paris Major 2023: Asia-Pacific RMR

Lower Bracket Round 1 begins with a matchup of Twisted Minds vs VERTEX

After losing their matches in Upper Bracket Quarterfinals, these squads find themselves at the end of a double-elimination bracket. This is the last opportunity for the teams to stay in the competition, and the winner will have to face Eruption in Lower Bracket Quarterfinals. If you are into CSGO betting, here’s a quick preview of the matchup as well as our predictions.

Twisted Minds 

Even though SpAwNnS did his best to keep Twisted Minds in the game on Inferno, TheMongolZ had the last laugh on the Upper Bracket Quarterfinals. VERTEX is going to be another tough roster to fight against, but they have a decent chance to turn this around if the squad turns up on the Best of 3.

Player To Watch



In their last match, VERTEX were totally overpowered by Rare Atom on Ancient. The Australian team only got 6 rounds under their name, thanks to hazr and malta’s pushback. Even though VERTEX are going into this matchup as the favorites, they have to show better resilience from the entire team.
