About Summit1G

Colorado-based professional video game streamer Jaryd Lazar, aka @Summit1G, is known for his live Twitch broadcasts of the multiplayer first-person shooter Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. With 1.6M+ Twitch followers, the full-time player is one of the top global live streamers, streaming his wins and losses of Counter-Strike, Overwatch, and H1Z1. Amassing fervent Twitch fans, Jaryd received a donation of $30,000 from a user in 2015, while another called the cops on him as a “swatting” prank while playing Pok√©mon Go in 2016, with a SWAT team appearing at his geo-targeted location and the interaction coincidentally live-streamed.
