TNL Take: This past weekend, Team Liquid won the largest eSports prize pool to date garnering $10.8M - yes, $10.8M or $2M+ per person - by winning The International 2017. 

While that is the largest eSports tournament prize pool by far, here's some perspective on what that means:

The International 2016 vs. US Open Golf 2016 (Graphic: The Next Level)

This year's 2017 Golf US Open Champion prize is exactly equal to each member of Team Liquid's $2.16M winnings.

What are you betting on 10 years from now?

This week The Next Level looked at Amazon's eSports ticketing opportunity, DisneyXD' pulls ahead in eSports programming and Nielsen forms eSports advisory board and launches Nielsen Esports.
