Senior esports competitive player Abbe Borg talks about life, games, art, and whistling in this Totally Game episode
Totally Game, a YouTube channel focused on gaming content, released an episode featuring the 2019 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) senior world champion Abbe “DieHardBirdie” Borg.
The episode offered a closer look into the life of Abbe Borg, with clips taken from his own home and from previous competitions. Best known by his nickname “DieHardBirdie,” he is considered as the oldest competitive CS:GO champion at 78 years old.
“You can never be too old to play video games. Age is just a number,” Borg said.
Recently, the senior gamer streams his daily CS:GO plays under his own channel on Twitch and has his own YouTube channel as well. He mentioned that CS: GO is his favorite video game and his gaming routine consists of playing up to four hours a day, like a daily exercise especially during the lockdown period.
“I stream my games on Twitch and upload them on YouTube. I want to leave something after my life, for the next generation,” he answered. “I cannot imagine living without gaming.”
DieHardBirdie was a former member of Silver Snipers, a team of senior CS:GO gamers from Sweden sponsored by Lenovo. Along with his team, they went on to win the CS:GO senior tournament in the DreamHack 2019. He is now forming his own team composed of military veterans called Golden Snipers.

Abbe is fond of origami and we can often find him creating interesting sculptures out of old books and crafting beautiful paper flowers for his family and friends when not video gaming.
