Day 3 of the main event at the International 9 was one of the most entertaining days of the tournament so far, with some amazing plays, incredible memes and some top tier Dota. We saw two more teams make their way out of the event with Mineski and Newbee bowing out of the event after losses to Team Secret and Infamous respectively.
Meanwhile, in the upper bracket we had the clash of the Chinese giants. PSG.LGD and Vici Gaming went toe-to-toe against each other with a packed stadium cheering them on. In the end, PSG.LGD managed to slay VG 2-0 to book a place in the Winner Bracket Finals. OG would later join them after a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Evil Geniuses to setup a rematch against PSG.LGD.
