After a successful showing earlier in the summer, the 2015 U.S. Championship at Long Beach on Oct. 9 will have a total prize pool of $150,000, with the majority of the money guaranteed by Valve.
That makes the contest one of the largest in CS:GO’s history, the most important event of the year, and it’s easy to see why Valve is putting out the word of mouth that the event is getting bigger with every year it’s in existence.

The U.S. Championship’s prize pool is currently $75,000, which Valve reports will “remain the same.”
In addition to the $150,000 prize pool, the remaining two places in the tournament will come with $5,000 each, leaving the final eight spots up for grabs. Two top 20 teams were chosen by Valve, and four places went to
