DONGRAEGU TO WIN @1.53Final result: 1 - 2
Profit: 9.18 - 6 = 3.18
GLobal Starcraft 2 League match featuring Maru(Terran, from team Prime) against DongRaeGu (Zerg, from MVP).
There is a lot of history and present behind the names of both players. I will bring some of it to you.
Let's start with the less known one. Maru is the youngest player GSL has ever had. He made his debut when being 13, and is now just 14. Keep in mind that GSL is a televised series of games!
It's not rare for koreans to have very young gaming pros, but they usually rise at the age of 17-18, not at 13.
He has a had a very good year, defeating some big names of the korean scene and managing to stay on Code S for GSL Season 3.
DongRaeGu has not had such a good year. He won the GSL once, but then saw himself dropping to Code A.
He kept a clean sheet there and was promotod to Code S again, as he deserved. He then moved to the internatíonal scene, going for some MLG tournaments in the USA. He showed really bad play by late May, but then 2 weekends ago we saw him at MLG Anaheim. He showed amazing performance again and managed to take the whole tournament.
Now, for this game, I wanted to bet on ML only, but then decided to put some of those units on a straight 2-0 win because of the very high odds.

It's a shame I couldn't post a tip because of the 3h rule... Games are decided depending on the two starters in this way: Game 1: A player vs B player Game 2: C vs D Game 3: Winner of Game 1 vs Winner of Game 2 Game 4: Loser vs Loser Game 5: Loser of Game 3 vs Winner of game 4 Players that end on the top (winners of games 3 and 5) advance to Code S (first division) and losers play on Code A (second diision). Winner of Game 3 advancs straitgh to R16 and Winner of game 5 goes to R32 of Code S. That said, Maru did win against Violet and great odds, 2.16 Now Maru has the momentum after already winning 1-0 on Game 5 against Violet, odds were over 2 again (cant remember exactly) and as I commented it was a great bet on Maru again. Let's see if he manages to win it, but if he does... well, it feels good, got everything right today! May post something more for tomorrow games.
That's exactly why it is unexplored. Most people don't get what it's all about, and most Starcraft players don't bet on it I suppose... Casters usually help on understanding though, but it's always better to have played some games obviously. DRG leading 1-0 against Violet now te get 1st spot on the group. I like to bet on this competition because players are risking a lot on their games. It is the highest league in the world and this professional players basically playing for their status on the upcoming pair of months. If there's Maru vs Violet on 5th game, definetely go for Maru again.
Yeah tried to watch it, but did not get what was going on. I guess I need to know the gameplay on Starcraft before I start betting on it ;) But it's great your making profit on it. This is really an unexplored market.
DRG won easily on game 3. In case you wonder, 1st map is random, 2nd map is selected by 1st game loser and 3rd is selected by 2nd game loser. Now they play DRG vs Violet, and there's no value on anything there. Value is on Maru to beat Oz. Oz was awful on his games, really bad, but I didn't like Maru's oppenings that much on game 1 and 3. At 2.26 I'd bet on Maru, some low stakes. Did you manage to get the stream up?
Definetely a bad map for DRG on second game and he just conceded when things got hard, knowing he could go into game 3 with a lot more options... Well, the 2-0 can't be won anymore, but let's hope we get the ML win Would be a big surprise if we didn't... because Maru did nothing special on game 2, DRG just played some parts wrong and lost his early advantage.
Register at gomtv.net low quality stream on live only though (as free user), and need to register and download specific client DRF leading 1-0 right now.
