Party like it’s 2009, part 2: Korea v Hungary

I wrote a post a couple of weeks bemoaning the demise of the draw cut. Review of Korea v Hungary showed that either earlier reports were exaggerated, or the combination of the two most draw cut-happy teams on the circuit brought them back out of hiding again.

Either way, I was a bit unkind to Csanad Gemesi yesterday. He’s a very good fencer, and he scored some lovely hits. Yesterday’s edition was about the Koreans using massive, aggressive attacks to rattle Gemesi and make him tense. The downside with big attacks is they’re pretty open to this sort of thing:

It wasn’t a one-sided tactic: Won threw one in towards the end stages, with his characteristic bounce.
