After seeing the success of the Pai thread last week I've decided to try to get some Lau discussion going. I've only played Lau in the test version a few months ago, but I liked what I saw. His f+P, b, f+P from VF3 had been simplified to f+P, P. Also, his d/f+K, f+P, b, f+P had also been simplified to d/f+K, P, P. I remember during one match where I started the round off with this move and was startled that I pulled it off so smoothly (thinking the command was still the VF3 command). I guess what I want to know is what are Lau's strengths now? I know he has a new elbow (d+P+K), but how useful is that? What are his high priority moves? What are his flowcharts like? I guess I just want to get some strategy discussion going. Anyone care to join in?
