When will the multi-award winner Kim Ga-young, Throng, Lee Mi-rae, Lim Jeong-suk and Young-gun Kim Ye-eun, Kim Bo-mi, Yong Hyun-ji, and Baek Min-joo meet – SK World Championship￼
Gayoung Kim and Jeongsuk Lim, winners of 5 crowns, and Throng and Lee Mi-rae, winners of 4 crowns compete for the title of “King of Kings”. The final match will be held at the SK Rent-A-Car World Championship with a prize money of 70 million won, starting on the 3rd.
Since it is an invitational tournament in the round of 32, there is no survival match. From the beginning, the 1st to 3rd place in the rankings with a one-on-one match, Throng, Kim Ga-young, and Lim Jeong-sook, who are in the first group, do not clash in the preliminary round where four people play a full league. Two out of four players have to go to the round of 16 or higher to meet.
Lee Mi-rae, who has no 4 crowns or championships this season, is in the 2nd group, so she can bump, but she is 11th, so she avoided the 3rd round. However, she was placed in Group F with champion Minah Kim of the 2nd Hana Card Tournament.
Throng, who won the 8th crown competition that ended just before and took first place in the prize money ranking with a difference of 1 million won, will meet with 16th place Lim Gyeong-jin, 17th place Yun Gyeong-nam, and 32nd place Jeong Eun-young. It is a relatively comfortable round of 32 league.
It was the same two crowns this season안전놀이터, but Kim Ga-young was eliminated in the survival match in the round of 32 of the Welcome Savings Bank Competition in January and was pushed to second place.
Because of that, I was organized in the same group B as Kim Se-yeon, Kim Min-young, and Oh Ji-yeon, who lost in the finals in 2021.
Gayoung Kim is the defending champion. Last year, she reached her prime by beating Throng and reaching the top. Gayoung Kim, who had been quiet after winning once in the first year, has won three times since then.
Lim Jung-suk, who won 5 crowns by winning the well-bang competition in January, will fight Japan’s Ayako, Lee Woo-kyung, and Kim Myung-hee.
Kim Jin-ah and Oh Soo-jung will play Hida Orie in Group D, and Kim Gap-seon and Park Ji-hyun will play Higashiuchi in Group E for the round of 16.
6th place Kim Min-a faces off against 4-time winners Lee Mi-rae, Jeon Ae-rin and Choi Yeon-joo in Group F. It’s not going to be an easy fight.
Kim Bo-mi, the representative runner of young guns in their 20s, is in Group G because she is in 7th place, and Ye-eun Kim, who only finished runner-up in a row, is in Group H because she is in 8th place.
Kim Ye-eun stuck a little hard. Baek Min-joo and Yong Hyun-ji, who have good shots this season, and Japan’s Namiko Hayashi are partners.
If we hadn’t met together, the round of 16 would be enough to look at, but at least 1 out of 3, or at most 2, could fall.
The winning prize is 70 million won. The ‘LPBA King of Kings’ match, which is 3.5 times the tour championship and receives 20 million won in prize money even for a runner-up, starts on March 3, one day later than the PBA.
