In this paper, I explore the existence of hot hand fallacy in professional Counter-Strike matches. The effect was assessed by investigating the relationships between a player's results in previous rounds and his amount of kills or share of headshot kills in the next round. Adding control on teams' equipment, I have not got any significant results in terms of hot hand fallacy. That corresponds to the previous studies on the topic.
