SK Gaming.Like a Baws
This is your first ever advancement in to the OSL Ro4.
I feel really good. I've been playing sluggishly lately but I'm so glad that I was able to make it to the Ro4 like this.
How did you practice?
The more I practiced, the more confused I got. So instead of increasing the amount of practice, I instead increased the number of practice partners. A lot of GSL Protoss players helped me out so I practiced without any problems.
It seemed like you were rather nervous before the match even began.
I tend to get nervous for matches at YongSan so I had a ChungShimHwan (that thing pro gamers eat when they get nervous). I'm not sure if it was because I bought the expensive one or what but the effect was really good.
In game one, you lost to a cannon rush.
In game one, Flying had prepared a really good strategy. I knew about build orders where I can get contained by three pylons but today was the first time I fell victim to two pylons. The cannon rush was so fast that I couldn't block it.
In game two, you showed the superior macro ability and grabbed your victory.
I normally don't fall to Protoss all ins. But recently I hadn't practiced all ins much so I lost to them. However, I have confidence in the basics of all ins.
In the last game, you failed to notice his secret expansion and yet you still won.
Whenever I play in televised matches, I seem to always win in secret expo situations when I don't know about it. It's the same for overseas tournaments and GSLs. I have confidence in myself so I can always overcome that gap of the opponent having one more expo than me. I think I would have been in a tougher situation if I had actually found his hidden expansion.
Who do you want to face in the Ro4?
Regardless of who makes it, that person will be my ticket to the finals. It's because neither player (DRG nor OZ) has good momentum right now. If I had to pick someone, I guess I would say I would like to face Oz. Zerg is a bit OP right now so I don't want to face them.
A KeSPA vs GSL final is inevitable.
In terms of name values, I think KeSPA players fell greatly. Personally, it was a real shame for me when Flash got eliminated. But both remaining players have great gaming senses so I think the match will be really fun.
Anything else you would like to say?
Our SK Gaming manager hyung came to Korea but he had a 4'o clock flight so he wasn't able to watch my match. He requested that I win so I am happy that I was able to grant that request. I want to thank that hyung and SK Gaming for always supporting me. I want to thank my girlfriend, the fans, and the sponsors. Lastly, I want to say that now that ChooSuk's over, we should all run together again.
