Is this CS:GO’s brightest star?

fame took the CS:GO world by storm at the newly-concluded IEM Rio Major. But how good is the Outsiders’ talent actually?

Six months ago, Pyotr "fame" Bolyshev wasn’t a household name in CS:GO. The CIS rifler was playing for K23 at that time and only attended smaller events such as open qualifiers and tier-2 and 3 tournaments.

Now, at this present time, Pyotr "fame" Bolyshev is a Major winner, a part of a superstar team which is placed number one on the world ranking, but foremost he’s now a renowned figure in top-tier CS:GO.
