Three Protoss and a Zerg make it through!

Today marked the conclusion of both the group stage and the Round of 8 for StarCraft II in Shanghai. The day was filled with action packed and dynamic games to make for some unmissable matches.
The group stage came to an end with group D being played out to determine the last two players in the Round of 8.  As the only man who could prevent an all Korean quarterfinal a lot of pressure rested on Iaguz’s shoulders. He, however, failed to make it out of the group losing both his games to Daisy and Polt, although putting up quite the game in his second map against Polt - a match everyone should make sure to catch up on.. Polt advanced first in the group with Hyun securing the last spot in the next round.
The playoffs set the stage for a Protoss heavy semifinals. Oz, HerO and MC advance to the Round of 4, ensuring at least one Protoss in the finals. DongRaeGu, HyuN and aLive all fell victim to the current Protoss domination, putting an end to their IEM Shanghai tournament journey. Polt and Revival took their game to the final map in a nail biting series. Eventually Revival came out on top, the only Zerg in the semifinals.
The semifinals and finals will take place tomorrow starting from  9:15 AM (GMT+8). Watch as Oz, HerO, MC and Revival all battle it out for the $10,000 and 750 WCS points on ESL TV!
