His weapon was World of Warcraft, he decided to become the best player on WoW and after some time he did achieve that, he accumulated tons of subscribers and people started watching his videos and listening to him. The finances for this projects future he gathered alone by playing online poker while his other two co-workers and friends continued to work.

Few years after he decided to make a serious project to make a charity program to save the children in Africa via opsharecraft.com, his plan was to accumulate 100.000.000 dollars over 100 days.
