Known for being one of the greatest eSports competitors of all time, Korean professional gamer Lee 'Flash' Young Ho has earned over $500,000 from StarCraft and StarCraft II tournament prize pools alone in his career, ranking him in second place behind Korean nemesis 'Jaedong'.



His retirement was published by Korean Website, Daily eSports, with the master gamer himself stating that "As a progamer, Ive got so much more than I deserve. Its been long 9 years, and I wont forget the love that my fans gave me. From now on, Id like to travel or rest a while, thinking about future. However I will say, I won`t put down my keyboards, and mouse."


Known not only for being an amazing competitor, Flash was also loved globally for his meticulous computer setup routines, known for utilizing the help from a ruler in order to set up his gaming platform just right at the world's largest tournaments.
