The Dhalsim Daigo doesn't want to play, YHC-Mochi, takes on Poongko in a best-of-5 Ultra Street Fighter 4 set

Poongko may not have been able to make it to EVO this year. But thanks to Capcom Cup Asia and The Machine's very own Twitch channel, recently the world has been able to bear witness to Poongko's remarkable play in Ultra Street Fighter 4.


Although there aren't a lot of high-level players in Korea that Poongko can spar with, since the connection over there is good enough for him to play with Japanese players at a low latency, Poongko's been getting matched up with notable players from Japan fairly often on Xbox Live.

Most recently, he's done a long set with YHC-Mochi, who MCZ|Daigo named as the one Japanese player he'd hate to have to fight against at an overseas tournament.

They've played so many ranked matches that FinestFighters was able to edit them together into a best-of-5 set, which you can watch below -- find out which stretchy-arm character specialist comes out on top.
Note: If you've watched an epic moment or a superb match on a top player's stream that you would like to share with the rest of EventHubs, do drop us an email ("Submit Tip" button up top) with the stream archive URL, time code, and a brief description of why this moment is noteworthy.

We would love to feature high-quality streams (and archives) on EventHubs front page more often, but as we already have a solid stream listings feature, we need a really good reason for posting about a stream -- top player vs. top player matches, epic moments, etc.

So if you ever see anything you think is noteworthy, please send it in. Do it for your favorite stream(s). Tell the rest of EventHubs why they should be watching your favorite stream(s). Note that submissions that do not provide time codes as a point of reference may not be considered.
