A Dublin teenager could leave today's Fortnite World Cup a millionaire
Not a bad little earner while on summer holidays.
Meet Joshua Juliano - the Irish teenager who will shortly be competing for a $3 million prize at the Fortnite World Cup.
17-year-old Josh is better known to the gaming world as lolb0om, which is his online username, and he will be among 100 gamers playing in the Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York.
He will be competing at the Fortnite World Cup on Sunday evening, where prize pool is a total of $30 million.
Having gained qualification earlier this year, he has guaranteed himself a minimum of $50,000, which will increase with every round he advances past.
The prize for first place is $3 million.
Yep. So all that time you spent playing video games as a kid was not a waste, you actually didn't play enough...
JOE met with Josh earlier this week to chat with him ahead of the highlight of the e-gaming calendar. Take a look:

With a bit of luck, Josh could return to Dublin ahead of his Leaving Cert year with a few million in the bank, and the title of the best Fortnite player in the world.
We're rooting for you!
