The Paris Major 2023 marked the fifth Major title in Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen’s career, but the Dane’s appetite for Major success remains as strong as ever
For nearly a decade, Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen has been a stalwart of the elite CSGO competitive scene, consistently performing at the highest level. His journey began with an impressive quarter-final appearance at the inaugural Major, DreamHack Winter 2013. Since then, he has amassed an enviable collection of trophies, establishing himself as one of the game's most accomplished players. His consistent excellence has earned him a place in the prestigious HLTV top 20 rankings on seven separate occasions.

While dupreeh had adjusted to a supporting role for Vitality in recent times, he proved his mettle when it truly mattered, playing a pivotal role in their historic Major triumph. His outstanding performance played a vital role in securing his fifth Major title, setting a new record for himself in the process.
As the confetti fluttered down and the jubilant fans dispersed into the night to continue the festivities, dupreeh seized the opportunity to have a chat with HLTV. With his adrenaline still pumping from the whirlwind couple of weeks he had experienced, the legendary Dane passionately shared his thoughts and emotions about the incredible journey.

Having won four Majors before, the euphoria of a Major win is nothing new for the 30-year-old, but the adrenaline rush barely dried up.
“It's just unreal. When I joined Vitality, I set an individual goal for myself that I wanted to achieve winning one more Major, because I knew that if I could win one with a new team, I would be the one with the most Majors since I was no longer playing together with my old friends in Astralis.
I'm still alongside Magisk and he gets his fourth since he didn't win the first one with me so of course it's crazy, but I wanted to create more history for myself, and I'm glad I achieved that today.
Of course in that sense it's nice, knowing that CSGO is ending, but on the other hand it's also sad that it's coming to an end. But this is a perfect way of ending it, and of course, CS2 is just around the corner, and I'm very excited to play that one as well. I'm glad I can have that record on my own, and that I know that no one will ever be close to touching it.”
