Who knew being good at video games could pay off so handsomely?
St. Louis Blues players Vince Dunn and Jordan Kyrou finished in second place in a charitable Fortnite tournament on Twitch this week, winning $100,000 for charity.
The Twitch Rivals SuperGames tournament featured all-star athletes and all-star gamers in a four-round event, which began April 13. Dunn and Kyrou, along with their gamer teammates mrconrem and aircool, accrued the second-most points in the tournament, losing only to a team that featured NFL stars Mike Evans (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and JuJu Smith-Schuster (Pittsburgh Steelers).
The $100,000 prize will be split four ways - $25,000 to the selected charity of each of the four team members.
Blues prospect Jake Walman also competed in the tournament, winning $2,000 for No Kid Hungry.
The tournament featured athletes from a variety of sports, including Bryce Harper (Philadelphia Phillies), Nathan MacKinnon (Colorado Avalanche), David Pastrnak (Boston Bruins), Patrik Laine (Winnipeg Jets) and Xavier Woods (WWE).
