The Gemini Korean Invitational is a new tournament series I'm starting up that is funded through my Patreon called The Gemini Korean Invitational and today I can announce the date and the players for the first edition of it!
The tournament will be a simple 4 person bracket with Trap vs GuMiho and Solar vs Zest.
I had raised $120 on my Patreon for April (and I'm throwing in $20) so that will be spread out among the players as:
* 1st Place: $85
* 2nd Place: $35
* 3rd/4th Place: $10
The initial two matches with be Bo5s played on the KR server with the current ladder map pool with the finals being a Bo7.
You'll be able to watch the stream live at https://www.twitch.tv/geminisc2/ on Tuesday, May 14 4:00am GMT (GMT+00:00).
VODs will be up on my YouTube channel within 1-2 days afterwards.
EDIT: YouTube VOD Playlist is up!
If you want to download the replays of the tournament, then you can become a patron and I'll have the link posted to download them within 15 minutes of the tournament finishing! Any tier is able to download them.
Hajinsun has also joined up with me to help with organization and communication for the tournaments! She'll also be there at the end of the tournament to help give an interview with the winner!
If you'd like to further support the tournament series then all patrons above $100 will still be added to the next edition's prize pool! I already surpassed $100 for May as well so that means there will at least be one more next month during June!
Thanks again for any support and I hope you all tune in to watch!
