Sixteen of the best CS:GO teams in the world have traveled to Stockholm, Sweden to compete at IEM Winter, a $250,000 LAN tournament.

This is one of the last premier Counter-Strike tournaments of the year and comes after two thrilling events, PGL Stockholm Major and BLAST Premier Fall Final, which were held in front of a live audience. IEM Winter, though, is being played in a studio environment, so there’s no crowd.

The tournament has split the 16 teams into two double-elimination format GSL groups. The winner of each group will go straight to the semifinals, while the runners-up and third-placed will advance to the quarterfinals. The playoffs will use a single-elimination bracket.

Gambit and G2 are some of the favorite teams headed into the event as the No. 1 team in the world, Natus Vincere, are not participating in IEM Winter. The winner will take home $100,000 plus 1,000 ESL Pro Tour points.

Here are the scores, standings, and results for each match at IEM Winter.
