Hey guys. I heard from some guy at my school that Counter Strike Pro players earn up to like a million or more a year!!! Is it true?!?!? =O

No, more like an annual salery of around $100,000 of US dollars. And that's only if they win all the tournaments.
How do they get to tournaments? Like being in clans and leagues? I remember one time Spike TV was having a tournament and clans were having a match (counter strike 1.6). It was pretty cool to watch and ever since then, i started playing a lot so i can get better and go to tournaments like those :D. Any advice?
it is very had to get into tournaments like that as it takes years of experience and alot of luck to make it into a clan that is good enough to do that.
ive been to a tourny with uk, french and german competitors for cs1.6 and css and it was amazing how good they are headshots nearly every time and reaction speed is imense.
practice will help but only a very small number reach that point. im sure most of us on hear have thought about that as a carear at some point but it more than likely wont happen

And the big checks go to teams, not individuals, unless you ARE REALLY fucking good like J. Wendel, who is a rare exception.
