Edited excerpts follow…

Bill Mooney, Skillz Chief Product Officer is a fan of Diamond Strike.

So many people watch football, soccer and basketball, and love it, probably have leagues, but obviously not as many are professionals like elite gamers in e-sports.

E-sports is starting to bring new people into the fray, while turning people who might play occasionally into hardcore gamers.

Skillz is making e-sports happen for the other 99 percent.

Nearer term, we expect to see major e-sports tournaments coming up around titles that haven t been played this way before whether that s Word With Friends or something else.
