Choi ‘Polt’ Seong Hun is a Terran player from South Korea living in the United States.

Polt is one of top 10 players in prize money earned in StarCraft II. He earned over $82,000 in 2013 alone and formerly held the record for highest individual tournament prize at $95,000 for his 2011 GSL Super Tournament victory. This was recently eclipsed by sOs, who won $100,000 from his 2013 WCS Global Finals win.

Polt was once known for his invincible TvP, earning a 10-0 win streak in GSL Code S in that match-up. He is now more widely known as an incredible TvZ player, winning 3 tournament finals in 2013 against Zerg opponents.

In August 2013, Polt managed to win the 2013 WCS America Season 2 Finals against Jaedong in a clean sweep of 4-0.

Not content with just one WCS America championship, Polt repeated this feat in the 2013 WCS America Season 3 Finals, defeating ByuL 4-1 and becoming the first and only player to win multiple WCS Finals in their region.

Polt entered the 2013 WCS Grand Finals at BlizzCon ranked 4th. He defeated fellow Terran player aLive with an impressive 3-0 victory in the first round, but Polt along with everyone else could not stop sOs on his run of destiny. The relatively unknown Protoss player from Woongjin Stars took the Ro8 match with a 3-1 victory.

In January 2014, Polt became the second Korean to obtain an Athlete Visa from the U.S. government after viOLet allowing him to continue compete in WCS in the America region after the regional changes introduced in 2015.
