Oly vs Tenrai Messatsu

Pretty much the upset of the night was newcomer Tenrai scoring a win over veteran Sho Dragon. Why he stuck with Kensou even though he was playing badly with him, I shall never ask. While showing Tenrai some Kim combos, it also dawned on me that I should damn well use him. And I did…
