We'll be live blogging today's remaining matches as they begin. Sypher and Moscow Five are doing player interviews now, so stay tuned for coverage. Match estimated to begin in 5 minutes.

Moscow Five has already won their first game vs. Dignitas, meaning a win here against Sypher would guarantee them passage to the elimination stage of the tournament.

Update (Picks): We have our picks for Sypher vs. Moscow Five

Sypher                                  Moscow Five
Vayne                                    Ryze
Janna                                     Sona
Morgana                                Gangplank
Lee Sin                                  Kennen
Riven                                     Shyvana

Update (9:00): Moscow Five is out to an early lead, picking up first blood with a 2-man gank in top lane. Also worth mentioning: M5 is running Kennen as their AD carry. M5 with a 1.5k gold lead

Update (13:30): Moscow Five is showing amazing play, taking dragon and winning the subsequent team fight 5 kills to none. The gold lead for M5 has now pulled ahead to a 7k lead. Kennen has doubled Vayne's CS. Something has to change in a big way soon for Sypher, or M5 will run away with this one.

Update (18:00): Moscow Five just took an uncontested 18-minute Baron. Not sure I see Sypher turning this one around.

Update (22:00): Game over at the 22-minute mark. Moscow Five made that game look more like a pub stomp than a tournament game. The coolest story from this match will probably be how effective AD Kennen was
