17 Year Old Pakistani Boy Becomes World’s 3rd Highest Earning Gamer

Sumail Hassan, a 17 years old Pakistani prodigy has made the country proud after becoming the third highest earning gamer in the world. Sumail also holds the Guinness World Record for being the youngest gamer to surpass $1 million in tournament winnings.

His total earnings amounted to $2,401,560 after a recent gaming tournament, making him the third highest earning gamer in the world. The only two gamers who have earned more than Sumail are Peter Dager and Sahil Arora.

The Dota playing enthusiast is now considered as one of the best players in the whole world. Back in 2015, Sumail was picked for the world’s best Dota 2 team, Evil Geniuses- the highest earning Dota2 team in North America.

As per SportsKeeda, Sumail is considered as the best mid-solo in Dota, globally. He has also made it to the Time Magazine’s list for the top most 30 influential teenagers for 2016 globally along with the Nobel laureate Malala YousufZai. Sumail is also the first ever Dota 2 player to be included in the magazine awards.

E-games are growing exponentially and having Sumail in the top tier could hopefully open doors for other Pakistani gamers too.
