"Opera GX's DNA is built around gaming and we want to be there for and with our audience. Streamers are rock stars, and what could be a better reward for their fans than to team up with them. What makes this face-off even more special is that the teams will participate in coaching sessions by some of the most experienced gaming coaches in the world," says Maciej Kocemba , Product Director of Opera GX.

One team will be led by Ludwig "Anomaly" Lagerstedt , a Swedish gamer and streamer known as the biggest non-competitive star of CS:GO. He and his team will go up against ex Virtus.pro-player Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski and his team.

$10,000 in cash prizes and coaching from famous CS:GO experts

The process begins with Anomaly and pashaBiceps assembling their dream teams before training for the ultimate face-off. The $10,000 prize pool will be divided between the teams, with the winning team getting $8,000 and the other receiving $2,000 . Both teams will also receive gaming gear from SteelSeries.

"I was immediately fired up when Opera GX approached me about playing with fans against Anomaly. I'm looking forward to the face-off and could not be more excited. Game on team Anomaly - bring your best people and guns!" said Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski.

" It's really events like this that make me less worried and sad about big tournaments being cancelled. When Opera GX contacted me, I knew instantly that this is something I wanted to be part of and the face-off is really a unique opportunity for me and my viewers to work together and STOMP pashaBiceps' team ," said Ludwig "Anomaly" Lagerstedt

In addition to playing with their favourite streamers, both teams will participate in coaching sessions with famous CS:GO experts. Joona "natu" Leppänen , coach of Ence with 15 years of pro gaming experience, will coach one team. Juha "aNGeldusT" Kurppa , retired professional CS:GO player and partner at Ence with almost 20 years of gaming experience, will be coaching the other team.

For three weeks, the assigned coaches will help their teams with strategy, gameplay, and teamwork. Most of the coaching content will be shared online, giving the audience a unique chance to go behind the scenes and see eSports pros at work, as well as learn a thing or two themselves.

The application deadline is April 18, 2021 , after which the chosen gamers will enter the trial phase. After the trials, chosen teams start to train for the final face-off between the teams with pro coaching. This epic final between the two teams will take place in the beginning of May 2021 .

Investing in Fantasy Sports Stocks

Investing in Fantasy Sports Stocks

When sports writer Daniel Okrent invented Rotisserie League Baseball in 1979, it’s unlikely that the “father of fantasy sports” could have imagined it would evolve into an US$8.9 billion market.

Of course, much of that growth can be attributed to advancements in technology. Fantasy sports magazines published in the late 1980s became websites in the 1990s, and eventually fantasy sports businesses; more recently there’s been a boom in fantasy sports apps for smartphones.

North America currently represents the largest market for fantasy sports services. Research and Markets estimates that more than 59 million people in the US and Canada play fantasy sports. However, India is set to experience significant market growth in the near-term future, with expectations that the number of players will rise from 20 million to a projected 150 million by 2022.

EAST SIDE GAMES GROUP ANNOUNCES NORMAL COURSE ISSUER BID

 East Side Games Group Inc. (TSX: EAGR) (OTC: EAGRF) (" ESGG " or the " Company ") announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange (" TSX ") has accepted its notice to proceed with a normal course issuer bid (the " NCIB ").

The Company's board of directors believes that the market price of the Company's common shares (the " Shares "), from time to time, may not reflect the inherent value of the Company, and purchases of Shares pursuant to the NCIB may represent an appropriate and desirable use of the Company's funds.  Any purchases made under the NCIB will be made by the Company subject to favourable market conditions at the prevailing market price at the time of acquisition through the facilities of the TSX and other alternative Canadian trading systems.

Pursuant to the notice, during the twelve month period commencing August 16, 2022 and ending August 15, 2023 , the Company may purchase up to 4,076,819 of its Shares, representing approximately 5% of its outstanding Shares as of August 2 , 2022.  Under the NCIB, other than purchases made pursuant to block purchase exemptions, the Company may purchase up to 5,371 Shares on the TSX and other alternative Canadian trading systems during any trading day, which represents approximately 25% of the average daily trading volume of the Shares on the TSX for the past six calendar months, being 21,486 shares per day. The Company may cancel any Shares repurchased under the NCIB, or reserve them for awards under its equity compensation plan.

In conjunction with the NCIB, the Company has entered into an automatic share purchase plan (the " ASPP ") with a designated broker to allow for the purchase of its Shares under the NCIB at times when the Company normally would not be active in the market due to applicable regulatory restrictions or internal trading blackout periods.  The ASPP has been pre-cleared by the TSX and is effective August 16, 2022 , the commencement date of the NCIB.  The ASPP constitutes an "automatic securities purchase plan" under applicable Canadian securities laws.  Shares purchased under the ASPP will be included in computing the number of Shares purchased under the NCIB.  Outside of these internal trading blackout periods, purchases under the NCIB will be made based on management's discretion.

Although the Company intends to purchase Shares under its NCIB, there can be no assurances that any such purchases will be completed.
