Abay "Hobbit" Khasenov has received offers from two North American organizations to play in their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive rosters.
Hobbit confirmed the news in a VK.com post that one of the North American organizations he's received an offer from is in the top 30 ranked teams in the world, and one of them is not.
Hobbit's potential move to North America comes after his short stint on Hellraisers. Hobbit joined Hellraisers in November 2018 and was benched just five months later for Žygimantas "nukkye" Chmieliauskas.
Hobbit is also a Major Champion. He won the 2017 PGL Krakow Major as a member of Gambit Esports. In the post, Hobbit said that he would be making a decision "over the course of the week."
Here is the full translated version of the VK.com post Hobbit made:
""Regarding inside information - two very exciting options have appeared! It is possible that you'll see me in America! Everything will be determined over the course of the week, and it's possible that I will transfer to the States because I received a really good proposition. I'm currently thinking it over, but at the same time, I don't want to let the opportunity slip!
"Let's say there are two options in the US: one is in the top 30, the other isn't. I'm flying home, and I'll give it a good thought. I'm just sharing the news that I won't be organisation-less. I bear a lot of responsibility because I have a family, and we will need to move. In the event that I choose the States, I will live there for a minimum of 1.5-2 years, but there is an alternative option that I like, which is currently being decided."
