MC vs Idra: MLG Columbus Semifinal
First game took place on Shakuras Plateau, and saw MC go for a forge expansion, Idra faked his expansion and threw down a Roach Warren, making 7 roaches and going for a standard Roach-Zergling all in. MC planned on going Stargate which perfectly countered this all in, after it failed Idra didn't even attempt to salvage his economy and gg'd.
Second game saw Idra go hatch first on Tal Dar'im Alter, to which MC responded to with Cannon Rushing him in, and as soon as the first Cannon popped Idra gg'd out, evening up the extended series advantage.
Third game, Typhoon peaks, again against a forge expand Protoss, Idra went for another all-in, except this one took place of two base, MC's sim city wasn't quiet tight enough to stop Zerglings but Idra did not notice and attempted to break it in from the front, again MC had a Stargate up, causing the all-in to eventually fail and again Idra gg's out early
Fourth game started out with some BM in the chat, MC asking Idra "Are you angry?" to which Idra replied "Why would I be, Zerg isn't supposed to win" to which MC responded with "okay gg". This game on ICCUP Testbug saw a macro game with 5 base zerg vs 3 base Protoss, Colossus-Blink Stalker vs Corrupter-Hydra-Roach. Idra successively won multiple engagements, but after lots of DT harass, gg'd again, a bit early, in my opinion.
MC will play the loser of MMA vs Losira, and then the winner of that match will play the winner of MMA and Losira. So now we have a guaranteed Korean First, Second and Third, stay tuned to MLG to see how it all ends up!
