Still hurts that I lost the first game in the second tournament against Jacob with 3-4 after being in a "solid" 3-0 lead with 4 minutes to go... Then seeing him score three goals in a minute... And finally a fourth.

I could definitly have played better that seventh minute of the game..

Torgny seems to be the only of us able to hurt Jacob. Just so sad for Torgny he's not that solid vs Dennis and me...

You bet him once though, which is fu**ing hard as I remember from the last WC. Congrats!!

Well done Jacob! he showed that to be in the top 8 of the world cup means something! almost untouchable by his opponents. Nice results among the other players.

Thanks for the nice words.
That game that Torgny mentions was very satisfying. I was 3-0 down after 6 minutes and then scored 3 in 52 seconds.
A memorable moment was also during the 2nd tournament when Jørn started talking about the next tournament, this was right after he'd played Dennis and lost and
Dennis said: I'm on, but if you'd asked 10 mins ago I'd said that I would never play again. I recognize that feeling from the tourneys I went to back in the days and took some heavy
beatings, and I still get it sometimes, this year in the WC I got it in the playouts for 5-8 place... but you shake the feeling off after some time, and get "back on the horse".

Andy: I still use the Tomahawk, for me it's the best. I also like the CMS Super 8-way ones, they are also precise and a bit kinder to you hand, but as I play quite roughly they seem to break to easily for me, not the stick itself but the plastic holding the circuitboard inside the case, so It's difficult to repair.
Played 8 World Cups
2001:10th(out of 30), 2002:19th(26), 2006:21st(50), 2008:25th(41), 2009:10th(34), 2010: 11th(46), 2014: 11th(26) 2015 8th(38).

Jacob with the Tomahawk demands tables build by marble stone though so its hard to find good locations to play against him...

I now own a Tomahawk too, the metal internal construction gives it great precision but the length of the joystick throw means you do need to apply more force for quick KO2 movements, hence the need for solid stone tables! :)

For me, the CMS Super 8-way has a perfect joystick throw and precision, but the plastic PCB board that doubles up as the joystick restrictor plate is a let down. If the restrictor plate had been made of metal, then that might've been the ideal KO2 stick, however, I guess the manufacturing costs would have been too high.
