Former Esports Integrity Commission employee Alexei "Yarabeu" Kurlov has accused Polaris Esports Dota 2 team and a number of CS:GO pro players (mostly from Russia and Ukraine) of fixing matches.
On the stream of Konstantin "LENINIW" Sivko, he stated that Polaris is a team made for suspicious matches. He pointed out that there were cases when bookmakers canceled bets on Polaris' games. He also said that he tried to bring his accusations into Valve’s notice, but was unsuccessful.

According to Yarabeu, there were quite a few CS:GO players involved in the foul gamesю Among them were Volodymyr "Woro2k" Veletniuk, Ramazan "Ramz1k" Başizov, Dmitriy "Dima" Bandurka, Vladislav "FinigaN" Usov, Hristiyan "REDSTAR" Pironkov and Ihor "w0nderful" Zhdanov.
According to him, there is a suspicion that Abdulkhalik "degster" Gasanov participated in fake matches.
Yarabeu said it is almost impossible to prove bribery. First, investigators are hindered by many. In addition, scammers can use anonymous crypto payments.
After the broadcast, the first reactions appeared. Dmitriy "Dima" Bandurka stated that he categorically denies any involvement in fixed games or any form of foul play. He believes that the ex-ESIC wants to raise the hype and expects an apology from him.
degster also denied allegations of unfair play. He, in an ironically aggressive way, called Yarabeu a morron. In addition, degster was angered by Yarabeu's words about Dagestan, where he comes from. On his Telegram channel, he invited him with a hint to look at "the most picturesque corners of Dagestan" - the Caucasian region next to Chechnya.
