StarCraft 2 professional Johan "NaNiWa" Lucchesi made quick work of Donghyun "Revival" Kim in a best-of-five tie breaker at Blizzard headquarters this morning. Lucchesi, who was tied with Kim for sixteenth place in World Championship Series (WCS) points, swept the series with a convincing 3/0.
Lucchesi's victory grants him a seed into the 2013 WCS Grand Finals at BlizzCon where he will be the only non-Korean competitor. He will face first place seed Min Chul "Soulkey" Kim in the round of sixteen.
