Popular Twitch streamer and Fortnite caster Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop is going to have a busy weekend at TwitchCon, as he revealed his schedule for the event on stream.

While playing Fortnite with NICKMERCS, the 100 Thieves streamer asked Dunlop if he would be playing at all during the TwitchCon weekend, to which CouRage replied: “I may as well spill the beans.”

“I’m casting Friday and Sunday,” stated CouRage. “Then I am playing in the Doritos Bowl on Saturday, and playing in the Streamer Invitational on Sunday. I got a packed weekend!”

CouRage will be casting the Duos Competition, which will run through the entire weekend. There are four qualifying heats, with the teams who finish Top 12 based on Victory Royales and eliminations qualifying for the Grand Final that takes place on Sunday, October 28, where players will be competing for their share of the $1.86 million prize pool.

On the Sunday morning, before the Grand Finals of the Duos Tournament, Dunlop will be competing in the Stream-viational, a 100 player solos competition featuring 50 Fortnite content creators, and 50 random TwitchCon attendees, who will battle it out for a chunk of the $750,000 prize.

CouRage will also be taking part in the Doritos Bowl Blackout tournament, which takes place on Saturday, October 27 alongside fellow team captains Ninja, Shroud and DrLupo.

Fans of Dunlop will be ecstatic at the news that he will be competing and casting, meaning that they will get to see plenty of their favourite streamer during the TwitchCon weekend.
