Blackout #3 Results (7/27/19)

I think it's really cool how diverse the Korean Smash scene is. We have a lot of expats from many different countries living here, people studying abroad, and people that are just traveling through. It's great for the scene to get practice against a larger player pool. However, this also means that we eventually have to say goodbye to our temporary visitors. Blackout #3 was the last tournament for Deggshot, who has been in Korea since the start of Ultimate and has attended almost all of the big Ultimate tournaments in Korea. He will be returning home to the U.S. next week. Have safe travels, and good luck your future endeavors. We will all miss you in Korea!

VS Tournament 3 Results (6/23/19)

The VS Tournament series is a monthly tournament that takes place in Gangnam, Seoul. This was the third of eight qualifier tournaments: the first place winner of each gets invited to an eight player Best of the Best tournament in December which will boast a 1,000,000₩ (≈ $864.87) prize pot. VS Tournaments are organized and advertised by a Korean team, and therefore tend to have a much higher percentage of Korean players compared to the tournaments we have organized by foreigners. If you are interested in seeing who some of the best Korean players are, you will definitely want to look at these results!

Liquor Burger Monthly #3 Results (5/18/19)

This weekend was the third monthly tournament at Liquor Burger in Incheon! This has always been one of my favorite tournament series in Korea. It is relatively low stakes, but for just 5,000₩ (about $4.18 USD) you can enter into both the singles and doubles brackets. Because of the low cost of entry and fun atmosphere, Liquor Burger always gets a great turnout, and a lot of doubles teams! Check out how it all went down:

For the first time ever, we had a three tournament weekend in Korea! At Seoul Smash #4 we saw the return of Korea's #1 Smash 4 player, Tanark. With his return and with most of the best Korean players in attendance, this might have been Korea's most difficult tournament of all time. Meanwhile, at the Bulgogi Smash House Quarterly tournament, the best players in the U.S. military competed in one of the biggest Smash tournaments to ever happen in Korea. Finally, on Sunday, Daegu hosted its first Smash tournament for Smashers that live in the South of Korea! Check out all the action and results here.
