After Friday, four players are still in the running for $100,000. It took five games, but Thijs defeated Kranich. Close matches would be the theme of the day, with no sweeps in the quarterfinals. Hotform and Zoro had their own five-game match, but the former pulled out a victory to advance. Ostkaka ousted Pinpingho 3-1, and Kno defeated DieMeng 3-1.

'StarCraft II' WCS Global Finals 2015
The No. 1 player in the World Championship Series standings was knocked out Friday. The quarterfinals had plenty of intriguing matchups, including No. 1 HerO against Classic. The latter's strong play continued at BlizzCon to advance to the semifinals.
Many thought INoVation could make it to the finals, but last year's champ Life was too strong for the South Korean. Despite his low ranking, No. 14th sOs proved his fans right as he defeated sixth-ranked Rain. The lowest-ranked player, No. 15 Rogue, followed suit by eliminating seventh-ranked Hydra.
With upsets and interesting results, the semifinals sees Classic matching up against Life and sOs against Rogue. The "StarCraft II" WCS Global Finals live stream begins at 12:30 p.m. PST (3:30 p.m. EST). The Grand Final begins at 4 p.m. PST (7 p.m. EST).
