ESB brings you free StarCraft II betting tips for a pair of PiG Sty Festival 4.0 bouts on Thursday, September 21. Here are our selections for Kim “Cure” Doh-wook vs Lee “Bunny” Jae-seon and Riccardo “Reynor” Romiti vs Kang “Solar” Min-soo.


Best Odds: Cure -250 at BetOnline | Bunny +175 at BetOnline

Kim “Cure” Doh-wook and Lee “Bunny” Jae-seon last met in the first round of ESL Open Cup #192 Korea just over a week ago, when Cure won 2-0, improving his head-to-head record to 13-8 and 32-21 in maps won since the Korean SCII esports pros first clashed in 2014. Unlike their last meeting, this match will be best-of-five (Bo5), but this won’t benefit Bunny.

The 28-year-old has an excellent record in mirrored matchups, with an 81.25% win rate across the last 16 games; however, it’s important to note that Bunny has played just nine TvT games since February. The only notable opponent he has beaten over that stretch was the current no.16 on the EPT KR ladder, Kim “Ryung” Dong-won.

Cure’s TvT record stands at 67.44% over the last 43 games, but he has managed that number while playing stronger opponents. Cure is also in excellent form, recently claiming silver medals from Gamers8 2023 and Master’s Coliseum 6.

Bunny hasn’t shown much recently, and he usually struggles against Cure, so we have to side with the favourite to get it done with at least two maps to spare.

Cure -1.5 maps



Best Odds: Reynor -120.48 at BetOnline | Solar -120.48 at BetOnline

Riccardo “Reynor” Romiti last met with Kang “Solar” Min-soo at the start of August during Gamers8 2023, when he won 2-1. The Italian previously won against Solar during HomeStory Cup XXIII (4-3) but lost their first meeting of the year in May (1-2) during Kung Fu Cup 2023 Weekly #5.

The two Zerg players are tied at ten wins apiece in all-time head-to-head, with Reynor holding a slight 35-33 lead in maps won. Reynor has won five of their last eight clashes but twice as Protoss, translating to a 3-3 record in ZvZ matchups since January 2022.

This explains why the StarCraft II betting sites have priced the two players at the same odds, but we like Reynor better. Solar is in excellent form (61.33% win rate over last 181 games) and is 80.49% in mirrored matchups, but he can be a bit more inconsistent than the Italian SCII pro.

Reynor looked shaky at Master’s Coliseum 6 a few weeks ago when he crashed out in the first round (9th-12th). However, that was the first tournament he hasn’t placed inside the top eight since 2022 GSL S3: Code S.

Over 4.5 maps at +150 with BetOnline isn’t a bad choice, as all of their last five meetings went the distance, but we prefer a straight bet on Reynor.

Reynor to win
