The duel between Alex Kurdecha and Krasimir Kostadinov became the most fascinating event of the evening. We had not seen such a heat of passion and intrigue for a very long time, and the score 3-3 was actually the first case in the history of PAL. ()
Why did the fight go exactly like this, could there be a score - 4-3 in favor of Krasimir Kostadinov, - different and if so, what was needed for this?
The answer to the first question is obvious, and of course, yes.
What was needed for this?
Consider the situation from Krasimir Kostadinov’s side. First of all, for the best result, Krasimir did not have enough strength in the wrist flexor. And, in fact, this is the main flaw of the Bulgarian, which gave us such a spectacular duel. Indeed, if it was enough wrist strength to at least hold it static while attacking with side pressure or defending, the score would be much more obvious for Krasimir. But it's not just about wrist. Kostadinov also lacked the strength of the pronator, and this is clearly visible in the first 2 rounds, where after a failed attack he does not manage to keep the opponent on the central part of the table, and he falls into a defensive position, from which he can no longer regain the initiative.
You can notice that both of these nuances are more training in nature. Was there something that Krasimir missed during the fight, and due to which he could show a better result? Surely yes, he can spend this fight more productively. Starting from the 4th round, Krasimir pulled in every fight without a wrist, and he did it successfully: it is clear that the movement has been sufficiently developed. But how exactly the Bulgarian appeared in the position – it was his main mistake.
There are two nuances in this situation.
