* Flash vs. Jaedong
* Much vs. AnyTime
* Bisu vs. Berserker (Iris)
* Stork vs. Sea
The last group day has now ended and it brought probably some of the most tense games so far in this tournament. The first game, between the currently highest KeSPA ranked player Kim "Bisu" Taek Yong and Yum "Sea" Bo Sung, turned out to go the opposite way of many predictions. Not only did Sea show extremely good play but Bisu seemed to make one mistake after another and of course it cost this Protoss player the victory.
Sea managed to beat Bisu and he clearly washed away the other two players in his group, namely Kim "GGplay" Joon Yung and Lee "Light" Jae Ho. Despite Bisu's current ranks and his extremely good Protoss versus Zerg match-up, his game versus GGPlay was not only very exciting to watch, but it also was very close and seemed to last forever. Another interesting fact is that there were three former team-mates in this Group, Light, Sea and Bisu who now is playing under the shirt of SK Telecom T1.
As the group stage is over, the tournament will now move on to the play-off stage. The quarter-finals will be played on February 25 and start at 10:00 CET. Every match will be played in a best-of-three format.
Stormm's quarter-final prediction
"If it was hard to predict who will win the group stage, then now it is almost impossible to say who will win for sure, but I will say Flash will defeat Jaedong if he will be able to play on the same level as he played on day one, Much should win his mirror game versus Anytime, Bisu should beat Berserker (Iris) in his matches and Stork should be able to overcome Sea's current winning streak."
