The South Korean wonderkid TaeJa takes his third Homestory Cup in a row after smashing Jang 'MC' Min Chul 4-0 in one of the most one-sided grand finals in recent memory. This now pushes the 17-year old's earnings close to $200,000, barely pushing him out of the overall top earners in SC2.

But aside from TaeJa's triumph, two non-Korean players in Sacha 'Scarlett' Hostyn and Antoin 'Dayshi' Stievenart made up the 3rd/4th place finishes in Krefeld this weekend, marking the first time in almost a year since non-Koreans made up half of the top 4 finishers.

  • 1st - Yun 'TaeJa' Young Seo: $10,000
  • 2nd - Jang 'MC' Min Chul: $6,500
  • 3rd/4th - Sacha 'Scarlett' Hostyn/Antoin 'Dayshi' Stievenart: $2,500
