TSL_Hyun with a repeat GGA Cup championship title

Posted by Radoslav "Nydra" Kolev at 23 June 2012 23:20

TSL's zerg Seok Hyun "HyuN" Ko went absolutely undefeated through the bracket of the fifth qualifier of the Global Gaming Alliance Cup to win his second championship. As HyuN's already qualified for the grand final, however, the spot goes to the runner up - ESC's Daisy.

The foreign resistance was extremely strong in this issue of the GGA Cup. Bly, Trimaster, Bischu, Cytoplasm, viPro, Goody, SortOf and qxc all took part in the fight but one by one they fell to the Korean advance. At the end, only Hyun and Daisy were left standing and the final ended with a win-win scenario: Hyun puched the tournament prize money and Daisy got the very precious grand final spot.
