So this guy is a professional gamer? I'm not at all familiar with how that works or how much money you can make. Is he like the best in a bunch of games or just the one from the video? I stopped playing video games in 8th grade, except for Madden, but I bet this dude couldn't handle me in Mario Kart or Mario Kart 64!

He's definitely an attention junkie, but he has serious skills in games like World of Warcraft and Starcraft. In poker all he did was massively multi-table really low stakes, never really playing any high stakes, but still impressive to manage so many tables and hours of any level of poker.

So how did he make money with youtube videos? Does he have a sponsor that pays him to upload content?

Many popular youtube top viewed video creators have advertisements and promotions tied to them. Youtube will partner with the most popular ones to set up special deals too.
