:lol:



Here's what he does after leaving Kyoto. I think Miku's been pretty sad for at least a couple weeks after Adam-niisan left.. :lol:

Wonder what his gig is. Andro probably pays him to travel around the world playing exhibitions like this and make videos, the local Andro sales team probably arranges things and puts him up. Probably a LOT of T-shirts sold (note the guy with the Bobrow t-shirt, and most were wearing the same pattern shirt). The "omiage" turned out to be.. :lol: Well, he's good enough and entertaining enough to make money, have fun and travel the world playing table tennis.. Urayamashi yo... :lol:

That last player was really good. It'd be interesting to see if those two schoolgirls show up in some later video. I imagine high school teams are pretty good in Japan, they can be here.

A few lessons to learn here. 1) Apparently 2500 level players can adapt to anything in a hurry. For someone who's had a sandpaper bat for a week... 2) The lobbing game doesn't work very well with hardbat. 3) I suppose if you're playing with sponge and Jimmy Butler's playing with hardbat an attacking game is better than lobbing.

I wonder if he's ever played against Larry Hodges and his clipboard.



Last time I saw Jimmy Butler in person he must've been seven years old, was maybe 4 foot tall.

HAPPY TRAVELLER
Image

The most exciting question all people wondering about:
-- Is Adam able to cope with a skilled professional player of WR100 ??
Yes, yes he is apt to very much.


Adam Bobrow is now listed as a payed personnel for ITTF. All travelling costs at the expense of the ITTF. Adam happy traveller, reimbursed for his every trip oversea. (to those countries hosting an ITTF event and which needing a presence of narrator's voice.)

/Be happy/

This got posted a few hours ago. Not as interesting as the previous ones, but that Rasanter table is worth seeing once.. :lol:

I wonder if it's possible to arrange to visit Butterfly's HQ if you visit Tokyo - maybe they're set up for tourist visits...

The latest one.



It's a good thing he didn't make a mistake and say "unko daisuki" instead. :lol: :lol: :lol: I was expecting more from those kids, I was expecting some of them to be 1600+ rated, most seemed around 1000-1300.

What a fantastic gig.

This one's an actual instructional video. Made some months ago. I'll be studying this closely.

Great videos. Like others, i initially found Adam's personality a bit too OTT and irritating/distracting. But over time I have come to appreciate his knowledge of the game, and his commentary has become better I think. There is certainly no doubting his passion for the game, and even though he has such an awkward looking playing style, he definately has skills. Those snake shots are great fun to watch and I'd love to pull a few on the people I play against!!

He's not kidding. This is one of the most intense matches I've ever seen.

He's got exactly the right personality, attitude, skills and playing style to succeed as a YouTube table tennis video maker. He's got the ability to win over people he needs to interact with (particularly kids), he isn't arrogant or thinks too much of himself, and isn't self-conscious. As I've said, he's got one heck of a gig, and I hope he keeps doing it for many years to come. That last video was a master class in both lobbing and how to deal with a 2100-level lobber.

This is a hot prick into Adam's rear flesh, just to better please him. (laughting)


Kara offering a nice masterclass of How To Nullify Bobrow"s Lobbing Play
