Where it all began:
Kenny used to watch his older brother, Cyril play a lot of video games, one of which was Counter-Strike. Watching others play was quite fascinating but even more entertaining for Schrub to try out the shooter game, himself. He started playing CS Source at the age of six, as a way to escape the family problems that were taking place around him. He would return home from school to play CS till late at night.
Kenny who was just eleven and Cyril participated in the local Counter-Strike match and ended up winning the match. From that moment on his brother encouraged him to follow his dream to be a professional gamer. The first squad Schrub joined was Team eXrensive! In 2012 and then made his debut with Very Games.
