A tough Open Bracket test saw four teams battle their way out for a spot in Pool Play at the $250,000 Gears Pro Circuit NOLA Open.
With $250,000 on the line, the Gears Pro Circuit NOLA Open is one of the largest events of Season Two and saw a collection of teams show up for their shot at a portion of the prize pool.
While 12 squads started their Gears NOLA journey in Pool Play, over 20 teams needed to fight their way through the gauntlet of an Open Bracket in order to keep their hopes at a Championship alive.
Now that the winner’s portion of the Gears NOLA Open Bracket has come to a close, four teams will be moving on to Pool Play for the remainder of the event – Bittersweet, Nimbus Esports, Lucent Esports, and Vertacon.
