L.A. Street Fighter IV Players Have a Chance at $21k in Prizes in Tournament
If you fancy yourself adept with a joystick or a gamepad and the occasional hadouken — and you live in Los Angeles — you might want to get out to the LG Street Fighter IV Tournament Saturday and win yourself some cash with your gaming skills.
The tournament is free to spectators and takes place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 14, at Belasco Theater in L.A. There’s complementary food, free giveaways from iam8bit, and a bunch of other swag and excitement to be had.
Tourney entrants compete for a chance to win a trip to South Korea and $21,000 in assorted prizes. The LG tournament is also a qualifier for the Global Street Fighter IV championships, so in addition to seeing some superstar players battle it out, combatants have a chance to take on the best in the world.
More information is available on the tournament’s official website.
