The e-Stars Seoul organization has announced that there annual Counter-Strike 1.6 tournament will feature a $67,000 USD prize pot. The event this year will feature only CS 1.6, as opposed to including several Blizzard-created games in the past. This change is due to licensing issues between Blizzard and South Korean tournament organizers.
