    Nice skate! They should go in 3rd

    Score: 34.77 + 29.51 = 64.28 (PB) and into 3rd ! They are ecstatic!

    I really have gotten on the Berton/Hotarek bandwagon this season!

    Rightfully in third place though I have to say for me this last one was the most enjoyable performance! I would love to see them taking a medal tomorrow

    Yeah for Stefania and Ondrej, they really deserve a good placement here, they are hard workers and have improved so much during the last couple of years (they are now receiving +2 in the triple twist that they weren't even able to attempt in their programs two seasons ago and last year they were constantly receiving level 1 in their BoDs that today has been a level 3 with +1 GOE!)
    I have to say that I completely disagree with V/T's score: some judges gave +2 to their 3S when he was evidently losing his balance in the landing and they're still receiving 9.50-9.75 in the PCS!
    I don't like S/S's SP this year, it doesn't work at all for me, but I'm happy that they skated clean and I hope that they will receive higher PCS tomorrow...

    why ? its not like S/S have masterpieces, had B/L competed and skated clean they would beat S/S or on level with them in pcs

    It's just that I don't like their program... (But, as I said in my post, I don't like S/S, too, so I would give them the same PCS, but I'm not a judge so... )

    Big relief to see V/T skate without major hiccups, but I was sad Maxim had to skate a silly programme at such a difficult moment.
    I was totally unmoved by S/S's SP. At least, before I enjoyed the juxtaposition of the choreography and costume, but now nothing of particular interest.
    B/H presented what figure skating ought to strive for. Very comportable to watch.
    K/S has become totally unpredictable. They seemed to have lost confidence in themselves. Consistency was never their strength but now they seem to have psychological issues.

    and their pcs are dropping
    if they continue to make mistakes by next season

    Russian Pair ranking by next season would be

    V/T
    B/L
    S/K
    K/S

    might as well retire if that happens, I hope not. K/S have always been incocnsistent
    so hopefully they will have the skate of their season at Worlds

    So many problems lately for Kavaguti/Smirnov from finishing 7th at the last Worlds to 6th at the GPF and now this disappointing 5th place in the SP behind teams in 3rd and 4th place that they've previously dominated. They are really losing momentum! Sad! :(

    Yeah, my guess is if K/S don't even make the Russian Olympic team they'll retire. I still think they will be ahead of S/K though next season.

    I wasn't even aware of this, but I am very sorry to hear this sad news. I have even more respect for Maxim now, and it is impressive that he went out and skated a great program after this.
