[23:08] Zenio won the quarter-final against NaNiwa with 3-1. His semi-final opponent is being played out now between Korean favorit MMA and Belgian underdog Feast.

[22:24] The third quarter-final is currently underway. Korean Zerg Zenio is facing Swedish Protoss NaNiwa who is living in Korea at the moment. At this moment the score is 1-1 in this best-of-five with the third map being played.

[21:44] Kas did it. He just won the fifth and deciding map against White-Ra and took the series with 3-2. Tomorrow he will face yet another fellow Ukrainian when he plays in the semi-final against DIMAGA.

[21:03] Dignitas didn't have any chance. At least that is what SoloMid made it look like. Two maps and an overall score of 34 to 4 kills. Tomorrow's grand final is set: Baylife Bros of TSM versus Moscow Five, Kiev's local heroes. Dignitas is still sitting paralysed in front of their PCs. But there is enough time to recover for the 3rd place decider against SK Gaming on Sunday.

[20:41] Moscow Five has just won the 3rd place in the Counter-Strike tournament with a 2-1 over fnatic. The final map was de_inferno which was won with 16:10. Congratulations to them.

Meanwhile the score between Kas and White-Ra in the All-Ukrainian StarCraft II quarter-final is 1:1 in a best-of-five.

Team SoloMid has won the first round against Team Dignitas and is up 1:0 in the second League of Legends semi-final.



[19:51] DIMAGA won his quarter-final against Pomi with 3-2 after he was down 0-2. A great comeback from the Zerg that is so loved by the crowed here. Pomi earned himself a lot of respect though with a stellar performance at his first ever Intel Extreme Masters tournament.

Meanwhile the Counter-Strike 3rd place between fnatic and Moscow 5 is underway and currently tied 1-1. The deciding map will be de_inferno.

In League of Legends the second semi-final is being played out at the moment. American teams TSM and Dignitas are in the first game in this best-of-three. The winner will face Moscow Five in the final who have shown some incredible play here so far.

[18:19] Moscow Five won the League of Legends semi-final against SK convincingly with 2-0. After M5 lost against SK in the Counter-Strike semi-final it was a sort of payback for the Russian eSports clan. Right now another Russian is trying to make a name for himself: Pomi is leading 1:0 against local favorite DIMAGA in the first StarCraft II quarter-final.

[18:15] New pictures from the first playoff day have been uploaded. So far not a single person was lifted by Carmac, but that shouldn't keep you from looking at them:
