“Gayoung and I don’t get along well.” Captain Kim Byung Ho gave me a big smile

Seungjang’s face was relaxed when he won one game first in the best-of-two system.

On the 18th, Hana Card won the first game of the “Welcome Savings Bank PBA Team League 2023-24” semi-playoff at KINTEX PBA Stadium in Goyang, beating SY with a set score of 4-2 (11-10, 9-5, 13-15, 9-4, 9-11, 9-7).

Hana Card has advanced to the P.S. for two consecutive seasons since its foundation. In the 22-23 season, it won the electric league title, making it to the semi-playoff. At that time, it lost all two games due to TS Shampoo and Puradak, and unfortunately failed to play in the playoffs.

마카오카지노 This season is off to a good start. Kim Ga-young, the ace skater who leads Hana Card, displayed robust performance by garnering two wins in women’s doubles in the second set and singles in the sixth set. Ayako Sakai of Japan, Nguyen Quoc Nguyen of Vietnam, and Murat Najee Choklu of Turkiye displayed stable performances.

Hana Card captain Kim Byung-ho, who met with reporters after the game, expressed his joy, saying, “The ace did so well today that I think I can play well tomorrow, and I have confidence.”

Kim Ga-young became a fifth-round MVP and a regular interviewer in the first round as well. Kim Ga-young mentioned his strategy for P.S. when he won the fifth round, and he said, “(The semi-playoff game) was a little more aggressive.”

“In fact, Jung-ju gave me some advice before joining the team. “If you’re not confident in attacking, you can’t defend.” If you think about it carefully, you’re right. It’s too small. You have to control both water polo and it’s working. It’s just my head that gets complicated a lot. I tried to sort that out quickly, but I was a bit busy today.”

Captain Kim Byung-ho made some changes to the order this time. He is playing with Nguyen in men’s doubles for the second time since the first round. “Today’s order deliberately strengthened the back set,” he said. “In the beginning, I thought there was a high chance that I would lose the first set because of me.”

He asked more details about the order. “After analyzing the opponent team’s performance, I will work with Kim Ga-young on the women’s order. Since there are three women, for example, if Kim Ga-young is strong against Han Ji-eun, I place her in the sixth or second set,” she said.

“In most cases, a lot of team aces play in the second or sixth set. Sometimes when I can’t control my condition, I plan it in the fourth set (mixed doubles), and I consider which male player I get along with. But (Kim) and I don’t really get along. I don’t go because I hate myself,” she said, while waving her hands.

Kim Ga-young rushed to correct (?) the situation, saying, “Me and (Kim) Byung-ho don’t seem to fit (four sets), but Kim Byung-ho firmly replied, “Cho Klu or Nguyen,” spreading even more laughter.

Nevertheless, he cited the highlight of the day as Kim Ga-young’s last score in the sixth set.

” (Kim Ga-young’s shot) was too precise in terms of teamwork. It was a great gift for our players,” Kim said.

Meanwhile, the “Welcome Savings Bank PBA Team League 2023-24” postseason semi-playoff will be held as the best of three games. The team that wins two games first will advance to the playoffs. If the set score reaches 1-1, overtime plays will be held on Wednesday.

The second round of the semi-playoff will take place from 4 p.m. on Tuesday. If the third round of the playoff takes place, it will take place from 9:30 p.m.
