SK Gaming have announced that Jimmy "allen" Allen will be returning to action in their Counter-Strike division.
The news comes as somewhat of a surprise, although Jimmy "allen" Allen said his leave of absense would only be until further notice, when he stepped down less than two months ago.
Allen initially decided to take a break after his recent illness had become a problem for his Counter-Strike commitment, which had started effecting him negatively in terms of playing the game.
However, Allen will now be returning to activity in SK Gaming, for whom he will act as a stand-in at the Swedish World Cyber Games qualifier.

Out of the blue, SK Gaming have released Dennis "dennis" Edman, who first began his adventure with the team in February, when he was brought in for the IEM5 World Championship.
Commenting on the matter and Dennis "dennis" Edman's exit, team manager Tim "merusame" Ellersiek said the following on the team's website:
"After several months with dennis in the lineup the team came to the decision that they won't continue in the same formation. The reasons behind this decision are extremely complex. Dennis has been a superb asset to the team and has also played extremely precious tournaments with and for SK Gaming.
"Former SK Gaming player Jimmy Allen will be playing the upcoming WCG Qualifier in Stockholm. Once again thank you Dennis, your time as a very talented SK player is appreciated in a great manner."
With Dennis "dennis" Edman on board, Allen's temporary replacement, SK Gaming recently secured a second-place finish at Xperia PLAY 2011, as well as winning Inferno Online 3.3.
SK Gaming now have:
Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund
Jimmy "allen" Allen
Johan "face" Klasson
Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg
Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström
The team will make their next appearance at another preliminary stage of the Swedish World Cyber Games qualifier, which will take place at Inferno Online Stockholm on May 28.
