Starcraft 2 GSL 3 Semi Final results and Final match lineup.

Day 1
HongUnPrime.WE [P] 2 v 4 TSL_Rain [T] : TSL_Rain

Day 2
oGsMC [P] 4 v 0 LiquidJinro [T] : oGsMC

  • HongUnPrime and TSL_Rain both made a lot of mistakes this set and have been getting a lot of negative criticism.
  • The final match up will be Terran vs Protoss. This is the first time a Protoss has had a chance to win a GSL tournament.
  • Jinro, the only foreigner, was eliminated this round. He's the only non-korean to ever make it that far and is widely seen as the current best Terran player worldwide. 
  • The prize money for this tournament are 100,000,000 KRW ($85,700USD) for the winner, 30,000,000 KRW ($25,700USD) for the runner up, 10,000,000 KRW ($8,600USD) for the two semifinalists, 4,000,000 KRW ($3,400USD) for the quarterfinalists, as well as lesser amounts for the Ro16, Ro32 and Ro64.
Sigh. I kinda thought Jinro would lose this round but not 4 and 0. That's disappointing. MC vs Jinro should have been the final match up, Rain isn't anywhere near Jinro in skill. MC will win this GSL for sure.

The finals will be streamed on Dec 18, 2010 2AMPST, 19:00 KST(GMT+9). Time is subject to change, as they often do with the final matches. You can watch the live stream for free at GOMtv.
