By the time finals day came around many people were predicting a whitewash following Stephano’s master class against MC in the semi-finals the day before and they weren’t wrong. In an incredibly lopsided best of seven Satouri was able to crush his opponent Yang ‘Alicia’ Joon Sik 4-0. As the camera zoomed in on his face after the third map he almost seemed bored and many in chat were begging for Alicia to be put out of his misery. However the final’s results belies the fact this has been another impressive result for Alicia, taking his second silver medal in as many months, marking a resurgence in his play that has been desperately needed.
The only real underperformance of the event is EG’s Huk who has had a nightmare this weekend, dropping out of NASL without even putting up a fight and only making it to 9th/10th in the Canadian WCS, a tournament he was almost unanimously favoured to win. The doubts over his current skill have been affirmed by this performance and based on this weekend he is not the player he was a year ago.
