It's summer and it's hot and your kids are inside. Good guess, they're probably playing video games. That could actually pay off for them in the long run.
This weekend a few KC natives are playing video games for money.
A lot of money.
Right now in Las Vegas, the world's largest video fighting game championship is happening.
In the last decade the Evolution Championship Series has given out about $500,000 to competitors. Last year's winners won about $60,000. That's not too shabby for a weekend. Winners also receive sponsorship deals and of course bragging rights.
Our KC team "KC | SRK" will need to keep an eye out for Daigo Umehara. He's never finished lower than the top 8 in the world and he hasn't won it all since 2010.
