I totally agree that there is a desperate need to get 6.0 language on judging out of all commentary starting with tv people like Tom Hammond Scott Hamilton Sandra bezic all the way to message boards but message boards are better. Totally don't like it.
Do you know when is St Petersburg Cup? Tuktamisheva will skate there.
Looks like the doom merchants were premature in writing off Liza T. She performed a superb SP today in the St. Petersburg Cup, scoring 69.43. Here are the protocols.
Positive GOE on all elements, including a 3Tx3T combination, 3R, and 2A. Very good PCS marks as well

I can't wait to see her in TEB! Hopefully she incorporates a 3A and 3Lz-3T in her free skate and the 3Lz-3T in the SP (I don't think she'll stick the 3A in her SP this season)
The video of Liza's SP is now on YouTube. Here is the link:-
Elizaveta Tuktamysheva - Short Program (St. Petersburg Cup)
Great performance. I think the talk from her camp of withdrawing her from Skate Canada was them just being very cautious following the recovery from the injury. The odds are that she will now compete at Skate Canada.
At some point during the season, I'm sure that she will restore the 3Zx3T combination to her programs.

nice strategy, since she just got back form injury she does her 2A at the near end of her SP to rack bonus in consolidation for her 3T-3T
Senior Ladies Result Overall:
1 Elizaveta Tuktamysheva 191.91
2 Svetlana Dobryagina 142.55
3 Elizaveta Leonova 110.77
4 Anna Iinsarkina 101.25
5 Maria Malakhova 92.43
1 Elizaveta Tuktamysheva 122.48
2 Svetlana Dobryagina 94.67
3 Elizaveta Leonova 73.31
4 Anna Insarkina 62.58
5 Maria Malakhova 61.61
How many points did she get in bonus? Because her total score with the two mistakes and lack of 3Lz-3T in SP still trumps her 2011 TEB scores where she only had one mistake by almost 10 points
