Fans of Starcraft: BroodWar are celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Korean esports phenomenon with several special tournaments. The Asian StarCraft 2 Open held on May 18th was one of them. This one-day event had players from China, Korea, Taiwan, and Singapore competing in a series of StarCraft 2 tournaments for an astronomical prize pool of USD$15,000. Dong “MacSed” Kang was the man standing out, winning the semi-finals of the open bracket, then becoming the champion with a 2-0 score against Lee “KongFu” Dong Won in the final.
KongFu won a free pass to the semi-finals, where he played against Tong Zhang. Tong won the two series, knocking out Kongfu and becoming the third person to score points in the single-elimination bracket. He will then face the winner of the semi-finals, which was played out by Sun Jun “Teddybear” Lu. As the Starcraft 2 scene in Korea enters its second year, we’d like to congratulate everyone who entered this awesome tournament!

The importance of taking some time out, to engage in some activities that stretch your mind a bit, cannot be stressed enough. Something as seemingly frivolous as giving it your best shot with some of the best mobile casinos can do wonders for your mental health.
Having had a couple of weeks off this week to make the most of a bank holiday, I headed out to the best casinos. Despite having travelled a considerable distance, I found that these can be enjoyed right on your phone.
All you need to do is download the appropriate app, make a few plays, and see how you fare. The fun is in engaging in a bit of gaming, and discovering what your inner fiend actually likes.
