Mohd Khairul opened on the offensive with Arena Athlete, Triton Fortune Hunter and Spellheart Chimera; while Scholar of Athreos prevented profitable attacks and gave Park the space he needed to sculpt his hand with Read the Bones.
Park found Sentry of the Underworld and went for the kill with Hopeful Eidolon and Ordeal of Erebos. But Mohd Khairul had an out in Voyage's End and Magma Jet on Scholar after damage opened the door for Khairul's offence.
Hopeful Eidolon and Observant Alseid on Wingsteed Rider then threatened to steal the game from Khairul and while he found Nimbus Naiad to force the trade with his own Satyr, Park's follow up plays of Celestial Archon and Hundred-Handed One was simply too high a hurdle to overcome.
Park wins 2-0 and advances to the semi-finals.
