This is a bit of a decimation by China, isn't it? Glad Park won to make this more interesting. But Christ, is China this strong? I think Iyama has already resigned to his fate.

Yes and no.

One only needed to look at the lineup to realize that China had a very high chance of winning from the start. Four of the five members of their team are in the top 10 players in the world, according to GoRatings. Korea is missing their other two heavy hitters(Kim Jiseok and Shin Jinseo) because they were both eliminated in the Korean preliminaries. This is also basically Japan's A-team, but unfortunately, they are simply not as strong as the other two teams.

So, this result is only to be expected :|

You are right: this is a decimation.
