I really hope it does not go to ace... it would just be sad to watch Flash take Bisu apart. Bisu was such an important part of SC history back in the day, and he's still pretty good even though he's gotten old and his hands have slowed down so much. Flash is obviously at the top of his game now... oh well, I just hope Bisu does not embarrass himself too much.

And Best is S class against Flash. Look at that 100% win rate against the alleged TvP monster. Can't even defeat a "mediocre" PvTer.
They only played twice, yes Flash is a TvP monster, the same way Jaedong is a ZvZ monster, that does not mean there not unbeatable. But Flash has been on fire which is why he should win.
Flash has been on fire against terrans and zergs. Our protoss hero shall not fail though. He shall preserve his 100% win rate against Flash. The guy is so good at PvT. Everyone knows he's going 2 base arbs, yet they still fall prey to his beastly PvT most of the time. Doh Jae Wook = Monster.
No matter how skill Hoejja is, Fantasy is fantasy... I predict a steam roll
Bisu > Luxury
Bisu's PvZ is slightly better than Lux's ZvP, and therefore I predict an amazing match with Bisu marginally winning
BeSt < FlaSh
Everyone knows Best's style, its like Rock's, except Rock goes carriers instead of arbiters off of 2 bases. I also dont like Best's style... very waistful of resources. And flash is flash. I expect a super steam roll over Best.
Hyuk > Violet
I predict an awesome game, with Hyuk just barely winning.

He has NOT had a good record against non-scrub Protoss players lately, and his recent game against DaezanG didn't exactly instill confidence in the shape of his current TvP either.
Maybe he'll blow us all away with this 'new method' of TvP we've been hearing about, and I'd be ecstatic if he did, but realistically I think Flash has about a 60% chance of taking Best, and 50% of taking Bisu right now. He's not some huge favorite against either of them. It's entirely possible that it goes to ace even if Flash loses his game, if Lux and Violet can hold onto theirs.
Still, crossing my fingers that he pulls some revolutionary build/method that redefines TvP...again...and leaves us all breathless.
yeah.. i didnt notice until now.. I just assume his TvP is very strong.. It used to be His TvZ was a lot worse than his TvP.. Lately its been reversed.. Didnt even notice.

its been proven that strategy doesnt work vs skt. (last season oz getting destroyed by skt in finals)
So we see 9-7 in his Last TvP's for Flash. But if we take out all the games against B-team scrub protosse (even firebathero beat Jaehoon 2-0) and look at Only games vs A-team Protoss players, He is 2-6. his TvP is looking REALLY shaky to me. if it does go to ACE, Cool sidenote is that Flash is 1-6 in his Last 7 games despite having a lead in the career series.
Your post would make sense if you weren't taking results from 6 months ago into account.
The Flash of now looks VASTLY different than the Flash of 6 months ago... and the Flash of 6 months ago was still an S-class progamer.
If it goes to ACE SKT better hope for a miracle because a protoss is likely to get smashed on Moon Glaive, a TvT against Flash is suicidal, and the only zerg of ANY MERIT AT ALL (which isn't much) is Hyuk who has such laughable ZvT it's painful to watch. Compare laughable ZvT to Flash's near single handed resurgance of bio TvZ dominance and SKT fans better hope they win 3-0 or 3-1. Flash has to lose sometime though so maybe you'll get lucky tonight.
Those are Flash's most recent games against Toss -.- if you want to go only with recent results like last 2 1/2 months he's 4-0 against jaehoon, daezang, and yoonjoong, players that shouldn't even count as a win. Against real competition (Bisu, Kal) hes 1-3. So unless you're tunnel visioning to JUST those 2 games vs Jaehoon and Daezang i dont see how Flash has been anywhere close to dominant TvP. I see great TvT and TvZ from flash in Swarm season and the Dark age of protoss but that doesn't apply to his probable 2 TvP's today. although game 3 vs Bisu @ WCG was frickin SICK from both sides.
