Teen wins $3 million in Fortnite tournament

This 16-year-old from Pennsylvania has just become an instant millionaire.

Kyle Giersdorf, who’s known by his video gaming handle “Bugha,” won the $3 million grand prize at the Fortnite World Cup held Sunday at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York.

Anyone have a good link to a summary of the event? Too much to trawl through on YT...

Something like an official or fan made highlights package :thumbsup:

You could also start playing tennis. The number of entrants to Wimbledon are far fewer than this tournament. You have a better shot.
I'd like to play tennis, so I can do this:

If only such career opportunities existed in the 1990s, I may have become a millionaire too. Mypals and I were game addicts at some point.

Well done to him. He should thank his parents for allowing him to spend countless hours practicing. Not a lot of people understand the pro gaming field.
