Professional Gamers

The world's most well-known professional gamer is Johnathan Wendel, 25, who has amassed more than US$1,000,000 of prize money from professional competitions throughout the world, especially in the Cyberathlete Professional League. Ain't it a good career. He practises his games 8 hours daily, just like any normal white collar workers' working hours too.

Wendel has been a successful competitor in several first-person shooter games. He debuted as a professional gamer in October 1999 by placing 3rd in the Quake III Arena tournament at the CPL's FRAG 3 event. Although he has played with top Counter-Strike and Call of Duty teams, most of his successes have been with one-versus-one deathmatch games including Quake III Arena, Unreal Tournament 2003, and Painkiller.
