Serral 2-3 Byun
It is that time of the year again where we see the best foreigners try their chances at the Korean superstars of Starcraft II. The event which will see eight foreigners travel to Seoul, South Korea to face off against the eight best players in the country.
Our very own Serral is one of the few foreigners that will be travelling to the event and this will be a big proving ground for him. Although in previous tournaments he has managed to take down some notable Koreans this time he will be against the best of the best. The tournament offers a $96000 prize pool with the first place taking home $35,700 of that, however as this is an independent event there are no WCS points up for grabs.
The tournament starts on Thursday 3rd August with the first games of the RO16 and will be played through until August 6th. All games will be Best of Five except for the final which will be a Best of Seven. We hope that you cheer Serral on as he tries to leave his first impact on Korean Starcraft as he takes on Byun in the Round of 16.
