I can't believe I'm saying this, but I've found something even worse for my ears than HT's choing - Adam Bobrow's constant, inane chatter. Just shut up!

He's really good but still an annoying kid. Do you really need to scream after eeeevvvvery friggin point?

It will be interesting to see how the Chinese team tries to counter his style.

Lets get this clear. Harimoto is talented.
But once he opens his mouth, all that talent is gone.

Actually, Harimoto reminds me of Boris Becker in tennis, a young, talented player beating the top players.
(...some not so good news about Becker recently though.)

He does NOT. He only does it when he WINS a point. And it's not overly long, either, though it IS loud... :lol: The Japanese women do it, too, though not as dramatically.

I forget who was accusing him of staring at his opponent when he chos. He definitely does NOT.

I think Chinese team just before the Xi Revolution, under LGL were about to start Cho'ing and staring and starting a psychological warfare for the most "passionate" "fighting-spirit" person at the table.

:lol:

Final match vs. Zhang Jike.



He's wearing a Victas shirt - is he using Victas rubber? :lol:

Right?! :lol:
Like obviously if you play disrespectfully and cho
then many many people are gonna go hate you for it
I think this is one of the main differences between why people respect mima ito but hate harimoto
Mima Ito is talent highlighted by talent
Harimoto is talent highlighted by his bad character
