Team Liquid part ways with Jacob "Pimp" Winneche
Jacob "Pimp" Winneche is a free agent following his release from a contract with Team Liquid.
Earlier this year Jacob "Pimp" Winneche had stepped down from the core roster of Team Liquid, expressing his desire to join a different organisation. Following his release from the contract with Team Liquid, Winneche is now a free agent. In the interim between stepping down and being released from his contract, the 21-year-old has taken on various roles within the scene. In June the Danish CS:GO player stood in for Tricked Esport during their performance at the Farmskins Championship #1 and the European Open Qualifier for DreamHack Valencia 2017, however noticeable results were not achieved during that period of time.
Opting to try something different as a career path, Pimp fulfilled the role of an analyst at DreamHack Tours 2017 and DreamHack Summer 2017, with many a fan expressing their enjoyment of his newly found role. In addition to the aforementioned, the young Dane will be taking on yet another analyst opportunity, as he will be heading to Valencia, Spain this weekend to analyse matches for the event.
For the moment it is obscure as to whether Pimp will be returning to an active role on a CS:GO roster or continue his development as an analyst.
