A 17-year-old British boy, a computer game addict, is going to insure his fingers against casualty to the sum of 375.000 pounds, which is equivalent to 600.000 euro. Alex Nikitin lives in London. He is a true gamer, we can even call him a sportsman. He is sure that gamers should take as much care about their fingers as football-players do about their legs and top models about their bosoms. Alex Nikitin is soon to take part in the World Cyber Games in South Korea. Participants of the event will compete in such disciplines as Counterstrike or 2002 Fifa World Cup. The prize money of the event makes up 300.000 USD.
Alex told journalists on the eve of the World Cyber Games that thanks to the Internet and more resources of computers, computer games were getting more and more high speed. Which in its turn makes the competition more interesting, and at the same time poses more danger to the most important instrument of all gamers, to the fingers.
