    i don't think this jedi mind trick has been discussed yet.

    i was just watching a short video of jacky vs lau that i originally downloaded from <a target="_blank" href=>C'est La Vie</a> about a month ago, and i noticed something neat that hadn't originally caught my attention. jacky hit lau as he recovered from d+P (major d+P abuser here) with P+KPK. lau struggled from the stagger after P+KP, ducked the ensuing kick and went for the backthrow counter as mC. jacky immediately turned around with G once out of recovery rigour, buffered in P+G, and escaped lau's standard P+G throw. mind you, lau was no obvious slouch here, as jacky's trick was one fluid sequence from beginning to end. hehe! /versus/images/icons/laugh.gif

    My question is why did the Jacky player continue with P+K, P, then (K) after the BK didn't float? He was asking for a backthrow. But then again he possibly set it up on purpose. That's nasty, Not to mention very brave. Anyone know how to break Back Throws Yet? LOL, saw Kyosao do it in a vid with Kage against jacky. jacky hit Kage with F,F+P+G and Kage escaped. It got quite a reaction from the crowd of Japanese guys. I want to do that. Any takers?

    blonde: you can only escape back throws in VF4 version A, which is hard to find these days. It's nowhere in the US. It was a simple P+G input to escape it I think.

    hehe, it's a nice idea, and actually something I've been doing for awhile. I don't do it all the time, but pretty much ever since I found out the effects of G when you're turned away, I've been trying to do it whenever I see a back throw coming up. It has worked out quite a few times, and worked nicely/versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    In fact, sometimes I do (TA) G, P+G, f+P+G (since a lot of players here tend to buffer in a dash before back throw or at least have to dash in before nailing it in some cases).

    Good topic to bring up nonetheless.
