HOUSTON Two local gamers have found a way to make a profit off their passion for video games and this weekend they could also be named world champions.

Matt Garver and Lindsey Breckenridge are both fans of Big Buck and have been dating for five years.

Every guy s dream to get paid to play video games, Garver said.

Breckenridge shares the same sentiments.

I really stopped messing around for a little while and took it seriously, Breckenridge said.

Both have qualified to compete in the Big Buck World Championship in Chicago. The grand prize will be $15,000 if the couple wins.
