Each week at CheckpointXP we bring you a moment in esports that is too close for comfort in the close shave of the week. This week for the CheckpointXP close shave of the week we see drop into the LCS match-up between Cloud9 and the Golden Guardians.

Cloud9 squared off with Golden Guardians and after the Guardians got off to an early lead. They had a chance to secure another kill on Licorice and really put Cloud9 in a hole. Licorice found himself in a 2 v 1 against the Golden Guardians and nearly fell but managed to survive just long enough that the Guardians retreated. You can even hear the anxiety in the the ‘eep’ of one of the casters. Our close shaves don’t get much closer than this.
