After three days ot intense competition, MLG has crowned a new Starcraft II champion at the Spring Arena 2: Korean player Violet.  This not only secures Violet $10,000, but also a guaranteed spot at MLG's Spring Championship in Anaheim, CA. next month.  Fellow Korean Symbol took 2nd place with a $6,000 prize, and the third place prize of $3,600 went ot French player Stephano.  I tend to have a hard time following Starcraft II because I'm not that good of a player, but I'd love to see the Spring Championship next month.
