IEM IV World Champion United States of America Shane "rapha" Hendrixson is featured in the first of a three part video interview in the SK Gaming 1on1 series. QuakeLive's #1 player talks about his rise from an unproven up and comer to the top of the competitive scene in around a year and a half.

How did the experience of losing amongst other things at his first event, ESWC Masters Paris, help him? What part has practice with United States of America ZeRo4 and Poland av3k played in rapha's progression as a player? Asked to pick three maps for a tournament which one current rotation map does he select and which two from Quake 3's past?

The interview can be watched on SK Gaming.
