Who is gootecks and why should I bother?
I've played Street Fighter competitively since 2003, starting with Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike and continuing with Street Fighter 4. I've traveled to compete in tournaments around the world, including places like Japan, Singapore, Australia, Canada, and Europe.
A lot of people may know me as the co-host of Excellent Adventures of gootecks & Mike Ross, or perhaps from my work on Cross Counter TV, the entertainment network for fighting game fans.
Since summer 2015, I've been traveling the country to play Street Fighter 5 because I love this game and can't get enough. I've also put in tons of hours into the beta tests as well as played in lots of pre-release events. Studying this game has helped me improve my own game and I intend to share this knowledge with you.
