Last weekend, French professional Counterstrike players LDLC beat out seven other teams from across Europe and the Americas at X Games Aspen, raking in $25,000 for their win. This weekend, some of those opponents will continue the fight at Clutch Con, a convention and high-stakes video-game tournament at the Crowne Plaza DIA.

Organized by Arvada's Clutch Gaming Arena in partnership with Major League Gaming, Clutch Con lingered in the planning stage for nearly two years. According to Justin Moskowitz, one of Clutch's co-owners, the X Games' move to include professional gaming in this year's lineup was what finally convinced them to take the plunge.
