The Gemini Korean Invitational is a new tournament series I'm starting up that is funded through my Patreon and this week will be the June edition of the tournament!
The tournament will be a simple 4 person bracket with the reigning champion Solar going against herO and Cure vs Ragnarok in Bo5 matches! We'll then play the Bo7 finals to determine the champion. There's no 3rd/4th place match.
I had raised $114 on my Patreon for May and I'm also very pleased to announce that Scythe Esports will be helping sponsor the tournament and upping the total prize pool to $164! That will be spread out among the players as:
* 1st Place: $100
* 2nd Place: $40
* 3rd/4th Place: $12
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 Sunday, Jun 23 4:00am GMT (GMT+00:00). I'll also be having UpATreeZelda on as a guest commentator this month!
VODs will be up on my YouTube channel within 1-2 days afterwards.
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.
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 July as well so that means there will at least be one more next month! I will be quite busy that month with family vacations and preparing my move to Korea, so hopefully I'll still be able to find a good time to arrange the tournament.
Thanks again for any support and I hope you all tune in to watch!
