Koen Schobbers started his esports career in Trackmania in 2007 and received his first contract with a professional organisation, Begrip Gaming, in 2008. In the 10 years that followed, Koen belonged to the top players in the game consistently. The highlight of his career was his first participation at the world championships in Paris,
