    At this point, I think some things have become so legendary in TT they are grandfathered into the sport regardless of whoever is umpiring -

    1) the Ma Long toss behind the body,
    2) the Lebesson...

    I sometimes get this impression that the CNT A players enjoy playing Lebesson. Not just the usual TT fun, but they enjoy playing him because of his style.

    Gauzy is legit, I hope his day comes soon. He should really have beaten Lebesson in that European final and gotten over the hump then.

    He has real chances of winning this match, I don't want to...

    Didn't become timid - took more risks and didn't convert. After someone has beaten you so badly so often, it becomes a form of Stockholm Syndrome.

    Yes. The one thing that people often point out when describing Dima or contrasting Dima and Boll is that Dima spehds a lot of hours training hard at the table. You can't doubt his hustle.

    As we can see, Silent Assassin is not so silent. No one would fault him for doing it in a bronze medal match. Not every time he plays his pet teddy bear in competition.
