To the chagrin of many, Johan 'NaNiwa' Lucchesi fell short in the first round of Blizzard's World Championship Series Grand Finals. The Swedish Protoss lost a series one to three against number one seed Kim 'Soulkey' Min Chu, a Zerg from South Korea.

In the final game Kim nine pooled Lucchesi, denying an attempt from his opponent to put down a cannon and requiring probes to be pulled from mining to defend. After a small back and forth, Lucchesi left the game realizing that he was too far behind to realistically make a comeback.

Irritated by losing to such a gimmicky play Lucchesi did not say good game.
