ImageIn a special Sunday edition of the 1on1 series we have the PainKiller legend Sander "Vo0" Kaasjager talking about tennis, hookers and his comeback to esports in his first video interview in two years.

If the name Sander 'Vo0' Kaasjager is unfamiliar to you, then you must hate esports for some reason. The Dutch player was the golden boy of the "$1,000,000 Era" of gaming during the 2005 CPL World Tour in PainKiller and picked up nearly a quarter of that sum to retire afterward.

Now he is back in competitive gaming again and up against the challenge of catching up in Quake 3. He qualified for the ESWC Grand Final from the Netherlands but he will be fighting both against other players and against the clock.

His first real test in Q3 was at the ESWC Masters of Paris last week where Vo0 took a map from the players who finished first and second in his group, John 'ZeRo4' Hill and Paul 'czm' Nelson. We talked right after the tournament was over.

Can Vo0 make it by ESWC Grand Finals?

There's not enough time.
There's no chance in hell.
There's no doubt.
There's no telling.
