He had that yes, but that wasn't the actual reason why he never became a full pro :P
We played in the same team for a couple of months and I can tell you that his aim was the sickest, but more than often he was also the reason why we lost rounds because of strange/stupid plays. He was great at holding sites, nothing more though.
But yeah, those times were the best! CSGO is great, but still nothing compared to the 1.6-days. Just a whole other feeling about the game, teams, etc.
