    agree.. fajar/rian is more like traditional indonesian MD, while gideon/sukamuljo is greatly rely on kevin raw talent and their mental fortitude. hope they can reach top rank soon.

    gideo/sukamuljo once again showed, why they are world no.1.

    AG alone doesn't make anyone a legend either. If it did, SBC would actually be a legend. It's just another title, and less competitive than the WC at that, so if it's your only one, you really have no business calling yourself a legend.

    That is why Kevin/Marcus could still be the top of the rank. Their nerves of steel when they are at the crises is unbelievable. Not playing their best, but somehow managed to turn around the match in the end. Marcus almost didn't make it.. phew.

    Fajar/Rian were superb they need more experience.

    How they make this kind of ending is unbelievable. is it a drama? it sure look so real. Fajri plays so well, it feels like they won.

    Fajar/Rian admit during the interview, that Kevin/Gideon is strong mentally. Even when they are behind they always focus and maintain composure.
    Good for them to realize this and hopefully they can be stronger in the future!

    Congratulation to minions for the Gold and Fajar/Rian for the Silver.
    Though Fajar/Rian should be rewarded best performer in this tournament.

    Fajar Rian indeed play very well so does Markus/Kevin the difference is Markus/Kevin is just mentally stronger.
