Tue “Ah Fu” Soon Chuan, a 23-year-old Malaysian from Selangor is part of a five-member professional gaming team, LGD Forever Young from China. According to Malaysiakini, the team won US$2.5 million (RM10.75 million) in prize money, making all of them instant millionaires.

The gaming event, which was held in Seattle, pitted 18 teams from various parts of the world such as North America, China, Europe, Southeast Asia, CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) and South America in a five-versus-five team battle game.

This is the second year in a row that a Malaysian has placed third in the annual event as back in 2012, a Johorean known as Wong “ChuaN” Hock Chuan, won the top spot as part of the China-based team, Invictus Gaming.

The prize money of RM10.75 million is only 10 per cent of the total prize money of RM103 million, which is subject to management fees and taxes by the US government. Rest assured though, they will still be millionaires after that!
