• Further contribution to the ESL Mortal Kombat X Pro-League finals prize pool. The deadline for the Blue Steel Sub-Zero Skin to fund this tournament is June 29.
• Establishing a Mortal Kombat X prize pool of $50,000 at EVO (July 17-19)
• Funding a series of Mortal Kombat X tournaments including:
• Combo Breaker (May 22-24)
• MCM Comic Con – UK Invitational Tournament (May 23)
• CEO (June 26-28)

Being raised with a Commodore 1541 and a PC 286, little Pablo Vecchio has been into games since childhood. Called “the weird guy” during elementary, he spent most of his time with his Family Game and his Sega Genesis. Fast forward 20 years, and he has become a full PlayStation gamer, mostly loving RPGs and fighting games. The guy loves the original Final Fantasy Tactics (PSOne), which he still plays on his cellphone, and hates James Pond, mostly because of the lack of creativity while ripping off James Bond (bad guy is called Doctor Maybe, I shit you not) He’s also a frustrated musician and male model (as you can see in the picture), and does computer stuff for a living.
