ImageDongRaeGu got his revenge on MarineKing, winning the MLG Spring Arena 1 final 4:3 to take home $5,000 and first place.

KR Soo Ho 'DongRaeGu' Park finally has his revenge. MYM.MVP's DongRaeGu advanced last night to his third MLG final in a row only to meet his biggest rival KR Jung-Hoon 'MarineKing' Lee yet another time. The back-and-forth series ended with a win for the zerg and with $5,000 in his pocket.

After finishing 6th in the round robin stage and taking literally the last possible playoffs seed, DongRaeGu had to make his way through the whole bracket, defeating MC (3-1) and Ganzi (3-0) to face MarineKingPrime in what is now an MLG tradition. Their rivalry began at MLG Winter Arena and continued onto the Winter Championship with MKP winning both times. Although he started the Spring Arena grand final with a win, Marineking could not see his MLG hat-trick completed.
