"It was an unusual, but memorable sight. Grubby, perhaps the best Warcraft III player outside South Korea, is running across the pristine KOMED MediaPark in Cologne, Germany, holding a giant white cheque above his head. The Dutchman, at 22-years-old considered a veteran by his peers, is using the $2,000 cheque he's just won for finishing runner-up at the Warcraft Regional Finals 2009, to protect himself from a summer downpour. Most people use umbrellas, or, at a push, a newspaper. Not Grubby."
