This Esports Star Makes $1 Million a Year
He's called "Sinatraa," and he's an Overwatch master.
While much of America was glued to football Sunday, thousands descended on Philadelphia for the Overwatch League Grand Finals.
The Wells Fargo Center in Philly was packed to capacity for the esports event, which saw two teams — the San Francisco Shock and the Vancouver Titans — battling it out for a $1.1 million grand prize.
“The scale, the fan excitement, the positivity, I’ve never seen anything like it,” Overwatch League commissioner Pete Vlastelica told USA Today.
Each team featured six players, including in the Shock's case, Sinatraa, aka Jay Won. He's one of esports' superstars and a fan favorite, making more than $1 million a year.
The bustling environment in a massive convention center threatened to derail him, but he put on an impressive showing, as did his teammates, ultimately taking home the grand prize.
"For me, personally, my whole body was numb because I was so nervous," Sinatraa told USA Today. "But after sitting down, just took a lot of deep breaths, tried to calm myself down and treat it like a normal match."
