Cloud9 secured their Pro League playoff spot with a 2-0 victory over FURIA

Esports: Hans sama not content with second best

Steven "Hans sama" Liv insists he is not content with being second best after Team Liquid were relegated to the lower bracket of the League of Legends LCS Spring Playoffs.

Elsewhere in the LCS Spring Playoffs, Cloud9 are 4/9 to beat Evil Geniuses, who can be backed at 13/8 to win.

Team Liquid down into lower bracket

Team Liquid have enjoyed a fairly decent split so far, finishing top of the regular-season standings with 14 wins from 18 matches, before recording a 3-2 win over Evil Geniuses in the first round of the upper bracket.

But in their second game in the bracket, they were overpowered by improving 100 Thieves 3-2 and will consequently drop into the third round of the lower bracket.

As a consequence of that match, 100 Thieves progressed directly to the finals, whereas Team Liquid will face either Cloud9 or Evil Geniuses in the third round of the lower bracket for a place in the final.

It is perhaps not where they envisaged themselves being right now and the team's AD carry claimed he joined the team to win trophies and not finish second.

Hans sama far from satisfied

Speaking to Inven Global, Team Liquid's Hans sama said: "Have I accomplished things? Not really.

"I really want to win this split, that's why I came to NA after a strong performance in my old region. I really want to do even better here, so I really want to win the title.

"I'm happy that we won the Lock In - although it doesn't mean anything, we still won a tournament. It's a little something. However, I'm here to win - I'm not here to be fine with being second."
