Did anyone think someone from the U.S could win this? These S.K males always practice against eachother, everyone else not doing the same lightning fast movements, are just fodder.

Life is one of the hardest working people on the planet. Completely dedicating to his craft, he spends, like most Korean SC players, 10-12 hours of practicing and reviewing and honing his skill. Much more time than athletes and most entrepreneurs. $10 000 isn't that much for a grand prize considering traveling expenses, etc.
