Congratulations to Tahlequah’s Mark Smith, who became the WGC Ultimate Gamer in the recent reality-show competition on the SciFi channel.
Smith, 23, won $100,000 and will become a representative of the World Cyber Games.
Smith told The Oklahoman in an interview before the show aired that his laid-back persona helped hide his outstanding gaming skills.
“I will say, I think being the southern boy, people didn’t see me coming, that’s for sure,” Smith said. “I guess they don’t think we have the internet here in Oklahoma yet. But I definitely came ready to play and I think they were very surprised by that.”
