With the upcoming Gfinity Australia Elite Series featuring competitions in CSGO, Rocket League and Street Fighter, the Chiefs Esports Club are joining the exciting world of the FGC with the signing of Kevin ‘bksama’ Nguyen to our SFV division!

One of the oldest and iconic gaming franchises, Street Fighter is often hailed as being the father of modern one-on-one fighting games and is known all over the world from arcades to being played at home on consoles or PCs.

As one of Australia’s most talented players, bksama took home the Red Bull Street Fighter V Championship Series at PAX Australia, earning an invite to the prestigious Red Bull Kumite event in Paris, France later this year to compete against some of the legends of the Street Fighter scene. He recently attended EVO Japan where he finished in the Top 49 amongst a highly competitive international crowd.

bksama will represent the Chiefs at a number of SFV events this year, including the $10,000 CyberGamer Autumn SFV, Capcom Pro Tour ranking event BAM10 hosted by CouchWarriors as well as the legendary Evolution Championship Series World Finals in Las Vegas, USA! On top of these events, he will also spearhead our SFV division in the Gfinity Australia Elite Series 2018.

Please welcome bksama to our Chiefs family, and head over to his Twitter @bksama to follow his journey through the FGC world!
