Once again, Syed “SumaiL” Hassan is a part of the 10K MMR club.

OG’s carry player reached 10,000 MMR after random picking in public games. The player is famed for his exceptional mechanical skill and consistently stellar plays.

In his latest stream, he showed that his MMR value is 10,020. He clarified that this is not his first time reaching the 10,000 milestone, as he previously reached the 10,100 mark.

SumaiL has established himself as one of the best mid lane players of all time. Despite being only 21 years old, he has been a top star during his five years in the professional scene.

He started his glory days under the banner of Evil Geniuses. He shook the meta when he introduced the Eul’s Scepter of Divinity build on Shadow Fiend. The item became an essential build for the hero and players, especially those in the lower ranks, still buy this item today.

He claimed the highly coveted Aegis of the Champions at The International 2015. Evil Geniuses took home more than $6 million for its first-place finish, which established SumaiL as the youngest millionaire in esports history at that point.

After almost five years with Evil Geniuses, the organization benched SumaiL. He had a short stint with Quincy Crew before officially leaving Evil Geniuses in January.

SumaiL is the new carry of OG

OG’s new roster debuted in the ESL One Los Angeles Europe Qualifier. SumaiL transitioned from being a mid lane player to a carry. The new lineup instantly gelled, and looked ready for a strong run at the event as the team only dropped a single game in the regional qualifier.

Although Valve has revoked the major status of ESL One Los Angeles, OG is still expected to play in the newly formatted tournament. The event will be played online, in a regional league style.

The COVID-19 pandemic has put a pause on the Dota 2 calendar. The Dota Pro Circuit was not immune to the cancellation of tournaments.

Fans still await Valve’s plans for the rest of the Dota Pro Circuit calendar and The International 2020.
