Live and online vieweres alike should prepare for an intense ride, not only due to the fact that the PGL KeSPA Minor is the biggest CS:GO tournament in the history of South Korea, but also due to what is at stake: a total of $50,000 in prize pool money and two spots in the offline qualifier for the next Major (ESL Cologne 2016).
