7) Clement Ivanov – Estonia
AKA: Puppey Total earnings: $450,480
I just did some research on Estonia and I came up with only three noteworthy offerings from their Baltic republic. That they apparently gave us gap-year chat messenger Skype, drummer-approved Paiste cymbals, and a beer called “Le Coq,” which is mildly amusing.
What it also gave us was a very, very good competitive video game player named Clement. His game of choice, Dota 2, has racked him up a fair bit of pocket money, a large portion of which coming from Dota 2 tournament “The International” – which his clan Natus Vincere only received the entry keys to three weeks before it started. Not bad.
BONUS FACT: He also looks a lot like Rick Astley.
