Aussie Shares $15m E-Games Prize

A European team with an Aussie member has become the first to win one of the highest-profile and most lucrative video games competitions for two years in a row.

OG defeated runner-up Team Liquid 3-1 in the final of the Dota 2 tournament in Shanghai. OG’s five teammates shared a top prize of $15.6 million.

The win made team captain Johan “N0tail” Sundstein, 25, the top prize-winning e-sports player of all time, with overall earnings from e-gaming of about $6.9m to date.

Sundstein’s other OG team members, including Australian Antham Pham, are among the top five in the Esports Earnings’ list.

Sundstein has won nearly $8 million from e-gaming, Pham, who is from Melbourne, has earned close to $7 million. It was the first time the competition had been held in China in its nine-year history.
