I think my fave sequence in all of CapCup was the back & forth adjustments when Poongko fakes SPD setup and does CR.MK FADC CR.LP vs Daigo— Ryan Price (@BGCallisto) December 9, 2015
-He knows Daigo will recognize setup & will jump— Ryan Price (@BGCallisto) December 9, 2015
-2nd time Daigo has already adjusted & blocks
-3rd time Poongko adjusts back, baits the DP
So much mental chess there, Poongko basically exploited Daigo's own amazing preparation & ability to quickly adjust to new strategies— Ryan Price (@BGCallisto) December 9, 2015
Stuff like this is definitely one of the reasons I play, watch, and love fighting games. The Capcom Cup was some of the most intense competition I’ve ever watched—and a fitting farewell to Street Fighter IV is its sequel releases next year—but this match in particular was so amazing.
(I’ll probably have more to say about Capcom Cup in another post.)
To see the match those above tweets refer to, here you go. One of the better matches, just because the two players in it are two of the best in the world.
