€33,000 CS:GO tourney at Cph Games
The organisers behind Copenhagen Games have announced that the 2013 edition will feature a CS:GO tournament with €33,000 in cash prizes.
As with the previous editions, the event will take place at Øksnehallen, an exhibition centre in the heart of Copenhagen, from March 27th through 31st.
With Komplett and Intel pumping money into the CS:GO tournament, the organisers were able to guarantee a €33,000 prize purse, the second highest in the history of the game, only behind that of DreamHack Winter.
The smaller prizes will be paid in cash on location, while the large amounts will be wired to the teams' accounts, also on the spot.
