Uijeongbu Happiness Special City
This is the first time Uijeongbu Happiness Special City,
which was founded in 2019, has appeared in a postseason, let alone a championship game.
In the third game of the final round, Uijeongbu Happiness Special City took the initiative by defeating KH Energy’s No. 1 player Kim Soo-jang 9th dan.
Uijeongbu’s ace, Yoo Chang-hyuk, is undefeated in 10 postseason matches.
Second-ranked Kim Dong-yeop 9-dan then sealed the win with a hundred and five moves in 304 moves against specialty foreign player Yoda Norimoto 9-dan.
Dong-yeop Kim looked down in the dumps at one point in the middle game,
with his AI predicted win rate dropping below 1%,
but he quickly turned the tide after Yoda capitalized on several loose pieces.
Kim Dong-yeop, who was 4-10 in the regular season and had lost three straight in the postseason,
led Uijeongbu to the final with a dramatic upset.
After the game, Yoo Chang-hyuk said, “Personally, I’ve played from second to fourth place in the past,
but this time I want to share my joy by winning the championship because it was difficult.”
Kim Dong-yeop said, “I’m sorry and grateful to my teammates, and I’ll do my best in the future.”
After passing through the semifinals and playoffs,
the team will face regular-season champion Yes Moon Kyung in Game 3 of the championship on July 7.
In the regular season, Yes Moon Kyung defeated Uijeongbu 2-1 in both the first and second halves.
The championship prize of the 2023 Saw Palcoholic Legends League is 30 million won,
while the runner-up prize is 15 million won. 메이저사이트
