    That was a great program and that lift is a sight to see, but the Eurosport commentators said it may get counted as a fall.

    P/Bs twizzles have improved a lot imo.

    uuu...low score for Nathalie/Fabian compared to Cappellini/Lanotte or Weaver/Poje, and a deduction - probably for that lift

    As much as I hate to say this, Bobrova/Soloviev just destroyed Pechalat/Bourzat with that performance. More speed and power, really sharp and light over the ice throughout.

    That was a very ragged finnstep. In fact it was all very frantic and whatever the opposite of controlled & crisp is. I wouldn't have it ahead of Nathalia & Fabian, but that's me.
    65.70
    Hard marking panel compared to SA & SC.

    I loathe B/S's music, and as a program I preferred P/B.

    PCS good for top couples-hard panel, I think, for sure.

    P&B edged B&S on PCS-but I would have had the gap bigger. I think B&S were probably faster, though, which is where the loss of control came from.

    Bobrova/Soloviev - medicore for me, I like them much more in dance holds, when they skate together, when they are not, I have a feeling they're all over the place and not in sync...

    65+ for them...I don't think they should be ahead of French couple

    B/S timing was off and their patterns weren't good

    P/B should've won this

    low scores ? C/L and W/P are ahead of SB
    even I/K can score higher than that

    Well, despite claims that either V&M or D&W were at risk, it doesn't look like they are at risk from Bobrova & Soloviev, I've got to say.

    However, panel was tough. The TES was low, and teams will probably score higher at their next event, particularly P&B, who had a mostly smooth & interesting routine. But if B&S skate like that, I&K will beat them at Russian Nationals if they are not careful.

    agree, they seemed more out of sync on the twizzles and the nontouch midline in comparison to P/B.

    P/B edges them on PCS, So there's hope they don't hold up B/S!
