It's never a good idea to mix 2 unhealthy obsessions.

Im in the mood to play devils advocate here. Regardless of her game being elevated, she is still not good enough to beat PP when PP is PP. No one is...and no one has elevated their game consistently to the PP level.

I respectfully disagree. PP being PP means making poor risk/reward decisions and throwing OoB 8 times per round.

Since winning Worlds, and especially this year, PB has been on the top of leaderboards, including at the end when it counts most. Her confidence is obvious, and her success is flowing from that.

Agreed, but PB is going beyond that. She's setting a new pace for the FPO field.

When PP is 'awn', she's definitely the FPO player to beat. But i'd argue that PB is reaching that consistency to challenge PP more often. And yes, PP has a few issues to clean up (had some early releases at WACO, etc.), but when she does, the PP/PB battles will rival McBeast/Wysocki battles...
