SK TELECOM T1 TO WIN @1.33Final result: 2 - 1
Profit: 13.30 - 10 = 3.3
Starcraft game from SK Proleague. Best of 3 sets.
1st set is a Brood war Best of 3 games.
2nd set is a Starcraft 2 Best of 3 games.
3rd set is a single Starcraft 2 game, ace match.
Thinks are quite straight forward coming to this match, because it is the last in the season for both teams.
After this game, whatever happens, Air Force ACE will disband. Being a Korean Army based team, they are lacking new recruits and can't keep up with the others. No surprise that they are the last in the standings, with only 6 wins and 14 losses. They were on a 5 games losing streak since they won 4 days ago. Moral boost? Not really...
Specially when we consider that SK Telecom needs a win here, 2-0 or 2-1, it doesn't matter, but they must win in order to advance to playoffs. There is a huge money difference if they advance, because of the sponsors mainly, but also because of the money prize.
Getting onto the actual games and leave the consequences out of it.
First set, on SC:BW, could fall either side. It's the only set Air Force ACE is managing to snipe from time to time, and when they win they mostly often go with BW+Ace match. That doesn't mean they will take it, not at all, because SK Telecom has way better players available here.
Second set, on Starcraft 2, will almost certainly fall SK Telecom's side. They have a very strong side with Rain, Fantasy and Bisu. Not only that, but the recent appointment of BoxeR as their new coach, gives a whole new set of strategies to the Starcraft 2 games.
If an Ace match is needed, as it will be played on Starcraft 2, I believe SK Telecom will take it (Rain should play here). I don't think they need to go this far but...
Air Force ACE is using a Protoss as their ace this season, GooJila or GuemChi. They have a 5-5 combined record, not bad considering the team only has 6 wins... But when playing against protosses, this players lack a lot, and Rain's best matchup is, arguable, the protoss mirror.
I think that, despite the low odds, this match is worth a good bet.

SKT1 won the BW series with an easy 2-0, but then sent quite bad players for the SC2 series. I wonder why they did that, considering what they were playing for.
Ace match came and By.Sun (or Rain, he has 2 names lol) did what he had been preparing for: win a protoss mirror with relative ease, making the bet a winner, although more suffered than expected after the failed SC2 series...
