Jimpphat: I was really nervous in Cologne

The young MOUZ player is looking forward to his second Tier-1 LAN tournament, where the worst nerves and pressure are off.

At just 16 years old Jimi "Jimpphat" Salo has started his journey in Tier-1 CS:GO on MOUZ, where the Finnish player is the newest addition to the roster.

In Cologne MOUZ’s new lurker got a taste of how the pressure and life is at the top level of Counter-Strike.

- I was really nervous actually when I played in Cologne. It was my first proper LAN. It was something new to me. Now that I am here in Malta it is already a lot different, I don’t feel pressure or anything like that because it is not new anymore, Jimpphat explained to Pley.gg in an interview on the Media Day before the start of Group B at ESL Pro League Season 18.

“Frozen is insane”

On MOUZ Jimi "Jimpphat" Salo is part of a very young squad. The most experienced and prolific player is without a doubt David "frozen" Čerňanský, who was named among the best 20 players last year by HLTV. The Slovakian is naturally someone Jimpphat is looking at for inspiration.

- He is the best player that I have ever played with easily. He is so insane. He is a good aimer but he is also super smart. Even though we are not playing the same positions, there is still a lot to learn from him, like how he thinks and it is always nice to talk with him about in-game stuff. I am definitely trying to learn from him, Jimpphat explains.

MOUZ face MIBR in the opening round of group B of ESL Pro League. You can hear how Jimi "Jimpphat" Salo views that match and more in the full interview down below.
