Regular Season 1st place KT defies expectations and is named T1 against PO

August 10, 2023 | by

KT Rolster, which topped the regular season with 16 straight wins, defied expectations and chose T1.

KT selected T1 as its opponent for the second round of the 2023 LCK Summer Split playoffs, which will take place on Tuesday afternoon at the Grand Seoul Roll Park LCK Arena in Jongno-gu, Seoul. Genji Esports will face off against Hanwha Life Esports with KT’s selection of T1.

Many observers expected KT to choose Hanwha instead of T1, which has been on the rise since the return of Lee “Faker” Sang-hyuk. However, KT won both games of the Summer Split against Hanwha Life, but each game was a full-set affair, and given Hanwha Life’s current upswing, it’s likely they’ve decided on T1 as their opponent.

KT swept T1 2-0 in the first round with Lee “Faker” Sang-hyuk on the roster. In a recent interview, coach Kang Dong-hoon said, “T1 will be the toughest with ‘Faker’ Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyuk back,” and they will face each other in the second round. 안전놀이터

The winner of this match will face the winner of Genji and Hanwha Life in the third round, which is scheduled to take place on the 12th. The winner will be the first to advance to the finals, which will be played on the 20th. If they lose, they’ll drop to the loser’s third round on the 13th.
