Jo Jae-ho, Kang Dong-gung, Cho Joon-hwi, and Eom Sang-pil survived, but Oh Tae-jun, Kim Hyun-woo, Chapak, and Yuxel were out. Because of this, the face of the round of 16 was quite different from the previous competition.

In the round of 32 (Bitmaru Broadcasting Support Center) on the 5th, Kudron, who won 7 crowns, lost to Kasido Costas after suffering from binta. One of the favorites, Zapata, was defeated by Baek Chan-hyun.
Last December’s runner-up in the High1 competition, Taejun Oh, lost 0-3 to Young-geon Seongkyun Lim, and Hyunwoo Kim, a member of the semifinals, lost 1-3 to Donggung Kang.
Despite this, foreign champions Palazon and Wimaz defeated Kim Byung-seop and Lee Young-chun to advance to the round of 16.
Jo Jae-ho, who had a hard time in the beginning, beat Jeong Chan-guk 3-1 as his shot stabilized. At the climax of the quarterfinals, he meets Eom Sang-pil, who is formidable. Eom Sang-pil defeated Jung Si-yong 3-1.
The round of 16 match between Lim Seong-gyun and Kasido Costas is worth watching. Although the value of the name is not good, Im Seong-gyun in his 20s is shooting refreshing shots. Considering Kasidocostas’ recent shots, I think we can have a good match if we catch the flow in the early stages.
Deuk-Hee Hwang, who has great strength as the No. 1 average, defeated Myung-Jin Choi 3-2. He will play in the round of 16 against Kim Yeong-seop, who defeated Han Dong-woo 3-1.
