    @ 9.32 for TR and 9.60 for CH. I know it's nationals with inflation but that's ridiculous. Even Hanyu at Japanese Nationals didn't score so high and his SP is way more intricate and with better/more transitions. Kovtun should only be 3-4 points behind IMO.

    I m in love with his axel since ever, he never disappoints me.
    I meant double, not pop, sorry for the confusion. My point was that he sometimes leaves points on the table, but the judges have him some cushion to do that.

    I pointed it out cause it is a big difference in marks between popping a jumping and doubling it.

    Well, he's 5,33 (I think? My maths "skills" are absolutely awful... ) behind, so that's not such a big discrepancy, then...

    In 2010 nationals it was plushenko 100 and voronov 95 so this is normal.

    ITA. Wow. The Freeskate will be more of a test but Evegeni is still showing everyone how its done when quads and triple axels are concerned.

    Yup.
    Only problem: If his LP is structured like his SP, then he'll be done with the jumps after 2 minutes.
    What will he do for the rest of the programme?
    He can roll his hips for 2,5 minutes straight, that seems to be his most choreographic move. Strike that, it's a transition. Has to be, right?

    He had a 3/5 layout earlier in the season. It was written about here a lot.

    Judging by the practice he seems to have a 4-4 layout. As in 4 jumps reeled off in a row in the first half and 4 jumps reeled off in a row in the second half.

    Arent they all do the same? on 3-5 layout it is even worse in the second half.
