Snowzin wants to become a full-time pro player soon and is working hard to achieve so. He starts off by practicing with some aimbots. Then he watches some PoVs, after which follows practice at some pick-up-game matches.

It is a rather big achievement for someone his age and we wish him all the luck. You can check out his Twitch here. May the force be with him!
