2007 CJ SuperFight 5
(≃ $25,509 USD)
The 2006-2007 CJ SuperFight was created by CJ Media (the sponsor behind CJ Entus) as a series of show matches. The series were broadcast live over a number of their channels: XTM (action movie channel), Xsports (sports), Mnet (music MTV-style); and internet streams: GOMTV (online streaming broadcasting) and Naver (internet portal broadcasting). CJ Media created elaborate introductions for players and featured lucrative prize pools, among the highest for a one-day event. Each broadcast also included First Person views of each participant and some matches branched into popular games aside from StarCraft.
The SuperFight show matches were held once approximately every month from October 2006 to May 2007. These show matches featured invited progamer with themes, such as New & Old and the Race Wars.
The fifth SuperFight was between the three races, titled the "Race War". Using maps to be used in the upcoming Proleague season, the three races squared off. Each race was composed of a coach (from teams not represented by the selected players), one invited player, and two remaining players as decided by votes (fans, players, officials and media).

The round-robin competition called for each race to play each other race three times, with all matches using a best of one format. As such, each race team played a total of six matches. The rules called for each player on a team to only play once during that round (e.g. a Terran player could not play both the Zerg and Protoss opponents in the given round). After two rounds, the third round would feature the two best races squaring off.
