vVv michs09 Has Won the GameStop PowerUp Virgin Gaming Qualifier!


Michael “michs09” LaBelle recently entered into the Virgin Gaming Gamestop Powerup Rewards VIP access tourney for FIFA 12 on the PS3. Like most Virgin Gaming tournaments, the qualification process included multiple stages. The first round had michs needing to win 4 games in a row against his opponents, followed be 2 more wins in a row in the second round, and finally three more wins in a row in bracket play to win the qualifier. Despite knowing that a single loss would knock him out of the qualifier, michs stayed focused and was able to win all 9 rounds in a row needed to win the qualifier!

vVv michs09 had a tough road throughout the tournament, but remained the only player standing at the end!


For winning this qualifier, vVv michs09 will have his airfare, his travel from the airport to the hotel, and his four-night hotel stay covered for the event taking place April 27th in NYC where the prize pool for Fifa is an unprecedented $400,000! In addition to winning the qualifier for Fifa 12, he was also able to qualify for the NHL 12 tournament, where the prize pool is $200,000!

When asked about the tournament, michs09 stated "I was fortunate enough to catch fire in this competition and come out beating opponent after opponent all the way to the finals. Huge shout out to vVv & our sponsors who make it possible for competitive gaming teams & esports to grow. I’m looking forward to the final event, where I will be competing in FIFA 12 & NHL 12. As a dual competitor, I need to put towards a lot of time training in order to give myself the best chances to win.

The competition will be tough, and the rules for the final event are not exactly what I hoped for, but with a prize pool so large there isn’t any room for complaining or making excuses.
"


Huge congrats to Mike on qualifying for both Fifa 12 and NHL 12, and best of luck at the event in New York!

Edited by RayOfLight, 04 April 2012 - 03:16 PM.

Favorite qoute, applies to the games i play: Starcraft 2 and Dota 2

"If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.”
