Korean pro-participation continued to flag in week #5 of the ESL Open Cups, with Zest vanquishing a field of mostly old-school players and foreigners to win his first KR server cup (3-0 vs Bomber in the finals).
The NA and EU server cups saw a curious case of role reversal, with America's Neeb managing to dethrone three-time winner HeroMarine on the EU server while France's Denver struck back and claimed the week's NA server cup (3-2 vs Bly in the finals).
ESL Open Cup winners earn $100 in prize money and 10 ESL Pro Tour points. Players who finish second earn 5 ESL Pro Tour points. Week #6 of ESL Open Cups is set to take place on February 16th.
