Anatoly “boolk” Ivanov joined Virtus.pro as coach ahead of ESL One Fall 2021, which starts Saturday.
“Our search for a coach has been a really tough process,” said Virtus.pro CEO Sergey Glamazda. “At first, we determined our weaknesses, the ones that only someone from outside could help us with. Playing on LANs takes its toll, both physical and mental-wise, and it’s difficult to deal with it on your own.”
boolk already had been working with the team ahead of their ESL One Fall appearance.
The Russian team finished runner-up to T1 at ESL One Summer 2021 in June.
Boolk, 30, previously coached Virtus.pro in 2018-19, before stints with EXTREMUM and AS Monaco Gambit.
