Canadian Twitch streamer Paisachu made quite the payday after she won a massive money match in Super Smash Bros Ultimate against one of her mods.

During the August 3 broadcast, moderator Kanyo challenged the streamer to a $1000 best two out of three match, which piqued the streamer’s interest.

“Hmm, for a thousand dollars?” she pondered deeply. “Seven-hundered. Best two out of three for seven-hundred.”

The moderator was quick to agree, simply replying “deal” in the chat.

In the first match, Paisachu made short work of her Cloud Strife adversary making use of Fire Emblem’s Chrom.

“How are you this good? I’ve been playing and practicing every day for like two weeks and you haven’t played for months!” the moderator exclaimed.

While Kanyo did manage to take the win in game two, the final match of the set didn’t go his way, with Paisachu winning after her opponent accidentally jumped off the stage and to his demise on his last stock.

After taking the massive win and the $700 that came with it, Kanyo proposed they play again, this time raising the stakes.

“One more game, double or nothing,” he suggested.

“That’s really hard; I don’t want to lose!” Paisachu laughed as she considered the offer, but ended up deciding to take it.

In the end, the streamer managed to clutch out the win in game that went down to the wire, causing the streamer to laugh hysterically after the hard-fought battle.

Being a man of his world, Kanyo ended up donating $1,400 to the victor along with the message “I hate everything.”

Shocked that he actually paid up, the British Columbian buried her face in her hands in disbelief: “Oh my god!”

Smash Ultimate money matches are fairly common at tournaments and other events, but for a simple game between friends to get so intense with these kind of stakes is very rare.

It will be interesting to see if the two ever play again and if the results will be the same, especially if they end up facing off in person, where there wouldn’t be any lag.

Logan Paul mindblown after pulling rare Pokemon cards worth $3000

Logan Paul has become an avid Pokemon card collector throughout the latter half of 2020, and treated fans of his Impaulsive podcast to watch him open a rare pack, the contents of which he was delighted with.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game originally got going in 1999 and now, over two decades later, is worth more than ever, with rare cards making sellers hundreds of thousands of dollars if they’ve kept their collection in good condition.

He recently revealed some of the collection he had been building up, including a first edition shadowless Charizard that could fetch anywhere between $40,000 to $60,000 at auction.

Letting his fans into the hobby, Logan opted to buy a pack of Base Set trading cards for $500 online and opened it live on Impaulsive.

Obviously, when you’re spending $500 on a single pack of cards, you’ve got to be pretty hopeful of the results, but Paul insisted he always gets his rarest cards from the seller he bought it from.

So, he opened them and revealed each card one-by-one, including a Squirtle which he expects to fetch around $200-300, perhaps more as he believes it to have a PSA grade of 10 — or, the best condition it could possibly be.

Alongside the regular Energy cards and some more Pokemon such as Gastly and Poliwhirl, Paul also packed a Blastoise, again expecting it to be PSA graded 10/10, which he says should fetch around $2500 — meaning the total value of the individual cards could fetch around $3000 if his valuations are correct.

Obviously, the valuations may be slightly off, but Logan has at least made his money back for this pack — and if he’s made a profit then more power to him.

There’s some serious money to be made in the Pokemon Trading Card Game now, especially as it enjoys somewhat of a resurgence of late, so it might be worth digging out those old cards and see what you’ve got laying around: you never know how much money you could be sitting on.
