Counter Strike Legend Griffin Benger Goes for $8.5M at WSOP (Video)

Canadian Griffin Benger is an online poker pro who plays under the screenname "Flush_Entity" but he's got an even bigger fanbase as one of the greatest Counter Strike professionals to ever play the game.

Benger was a dominant pro gamer under the name "shaGuar" but made the switch to poker because of the money up for grabs.

Benger's plan is working perfectly since he's still alive heading into the money at the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event. $8.5 million is waiting for the winner.

We speak to Benger about transitioning from gaming to poker, and why he thinks other games should follow suit.
