On December 21 last year, London's Science Museum was the venue for the UK's biggest pro gaming event ever. The Intel Masters, which was 2898235announced in November, pitted no less than 24 of the UK's most skilled gaming clans against each other in the disciplines of Counter-Strike, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, and Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. The competition, which was watched by an enthusiastic crowd and hosted by Chris Barrie of Red Dwarf fame, was a great success and will almost certainly now become an annual event.

"As expected the very first Intel Masters saw the UK's finest gaming talent produce exceptional standards of play and levels of entertainment that had the crowd enthralled right from the first match," said David Mitchell, Intel's head of brand marketing. "Pro gaming requires supreme levels of skill, concentration, and dedication in order to compete at the very highest level. By hosting the Intel Masters and showcasing it to spectators in such a spectacular way we are demonstrating why pro gaming can credibly become established as the 'Sport of the 21st Century.'"

The winners and runners-up for each of the three different disciplines were as follows:

Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Winners: 4 Kings (£6,000)
Runners-up: Lemmings (£3,000)

Counter-Strike
Winners: Infinity eSports (£5,000)
Runners-up: Clan One (£2,500)

Warcraft III (Individual Event)
