* Flash vs. Stork
The first match in the semi finals was between the new and incredibly unique Terran player, Lee "Flash" Young Ho and Oh Yeong "Anytime" Jong, who uses Protoss as his race. The first of these players was clearly a favourite and even if his opponent has more experience under his belt, it did not stop the young player from winning. The Protoss player started of with a nice victory on Blue Storm in game one, but as soon as the second map started the tides of war changed and Flash simply dominated the next three games. This allowed the very new and now probably the best Terran player to advance in the grand final with a 3-1 victory.
The second match-up was between Song "Stork" Byung Goo who is not only one of the best Protoss players, but also the current WCG 2007 title holder and the monstrous Bisu-slayer, Berserker" Hyung Tae (Iris). This match could have gone either way because both of them had eliminated great players and both of them really wanted to qualify for the finals.
If last time Berserker could beat his Protoss opponent, Bisu because of him slacking with his micro, then this time he had no chance to win it this way as Stork showed everyone why is he so good. With Early Zealot rushes in game one and three and with the "unstoppable Katrina carrier" tactic in game two, The Bird toss managed to swipe his opponent in a 3-0 run.
Next and the last playday in this "Xnote Star Invitational" tournament hosted by GomTV will be on March 1 at 10:00 CET.
Stormm's Final prediction
"The Finals of GomTV Star Invitational have arrived! Most Starcraft fans must be as hyped as I am now and even if we won’t see Bisu, Jaedong or even NaDa, we will be seeing really good games. As for predictions, I think that Stork should win this because of his ideal performing and his good PvT match-up. Then again Flash has showed that he can counter almost any attack on his base and in most situations come out on top."
