New York, NY (October 4, 2005) - Major League Gaming (MLG), the largest organized league for competitive videogamers, is proud to announce that it's youngest Professional Gamer - seven year-old Victor "Lil Poison" De Leon III - will be appearing in New York to benefit the victims of Katrina.

With a minimum $2 donation, gamers from all skill levels can take on one of the best Professional Gamers in Halo 2TM at GameCrazy in Long Island, NY.

As the world's youngest professional gamer, Lil Poison started video gaming at the tender age of two and subsequently started his competitive career at four years of age at a local New York Halo Tournament. In 2005 he was recruited by StK, the number one Halo and Halo 2 team in the World. After a great showing at the Washington D.C. competition, Major League Gaming recruiters signed LiL Poison. He quickly gained worldwide fame as the youngest Professional Gamer in the World. Now at the ripe age of 7, he competes nationwide and is known throughout the gaming industry and amongst his peers as "that little one" to beat. And it isn't easy!
