GuMiho opened the series by proxying a pair of barracks. Reapers came out two by two and, while Maru temporarily pushed them back with a cyclone, he had already lost ten workers. The follow up effort was enough put GuMiho up 1-0.
It was Maru who proxied on Odyssey. Although he didn't notch an outright kill, the addition of a cyclone and marines to his reapers was enough to cancel GuMiho's natural. Both players went for banshees from there, but only Maru’s were effective. Maru widened his lead with double digit worker kills while GuMiho marshalled a marine/tank force. When GuMiho finally moved out Maru had more than enough to answer and earn his first victory.
Maru opened command center first in game three, but it was GuMiho who executed the first offensive move, killing 11 workers while putting Maru's production under siege. Maru managed to even the worker count with a multipronged attack, but he lost too much of his army in the process. Up on supply, GuMiho punished Maru’s aggression with attack after attack. Maru kept hemorrhaging workers until he had no choice but to tap out.
GuMiho went for proxy two rax once again which morphed into a proxied tank and reactored marine push when his reapers failed to gain traction. Maru pushed out, killing the tank and canceling the starport. The cloaked banshees follow up prompted a quick concession from GuMiho.
Both players opened with cloaked banshees in game five. But while Maru's was proxied, GuMiho's was scouted. Maru was able to get minimal damage done but both players reached three bases on even supply. GuMiho ratcheted up the pressure from there, though, taking advantage of his superior upgrades. Maru held strong for a time, but finally buckled. Down multiple bases and nearly 70 supply Maru left the game to put GuMiho ahead 3-2.
Maru proxied two barracks at the watch tower on Whirlwind, but GuMiho discovered them with a scouting scv. He built two barracks of his own back at home and even managed to kill Maru's first two reapers without losing any of his own. From there it was a foregone conclusion. GuMiho simply rallied to Maru's main with a superior reaper count, giving the Jin Air Terran no choice but to cede the match. The 4-2 victory makes GuMiho the first finalist in GSL Season 2. He will wait in the finals for the winner of Classic vs soO to be played later in the week.
