Good enough to play, but not good enough to win.

I don't think he is incredible, just very unorthodox.

I'd say he is definitely over 2500 US level with the potential to upset much stronger players due to his unusual style.. The speed on his backhand attacks is amazing..

Thomas Bennborn is 'more increadible'. He played in the British League a few years ago and won against Rumgay.

Bennborn is a good player but he did lose to Jim Butler at the 2015 US Open. His US Rating is 2542.. 
I would think that Bennborn and Ericson are close in playing level..

Bennborn is a classic defender who never attacks, the Swede, I am sure is a more dangerous player with his kill shots. You can’t give him a high ball or a neutral ball.

Gustaf has a nice game! He was giving Ruwen some trouble with the BH loop.  But does anyone know the score for that match? It's not listed on ratingscentral.

I also think Gustaf has two main weaknesses.  First, his chopping game is not steady enough.  This becomes a liability as he faces higher levels.  Second, his use of the BH loop should not be so constant.  That's what the FH loop is for and his is not that strong at that level.  So more FH pressure, steadier chopping, and keep the BH loop for surprises and I think he can reach a higher level.

He's unorthodox and entertaining. If his FH is better, he'd be even more incredible :D
If I play pips someday, I'd like to play this style. What kind of pips does he use?

Dornenglanz, I believe. OX (it only comes in OX from the factory).

Do you think I should put OX long pips on my Mazunov and give it a shot?

It would be fun, but only if you can twiddle well...

Who is he?  and what's his rating ?





Really fricking good.  2550-2600 minimum.  I am putting him just a little higher than Pushblocker rated him. 

By the way one irony is that people complain that TT is so homogeneous now in this era with 40+ balls, and yet when we see someone who is very very different, some people think it is ugly.

Back when I plaid with pips for a year or so I learned to twiddle.  I got pretty good in hitting flat with OX pips back then and a hard blade helps with that.  Perhaps, I'll set up a blade for that and give it a shot.  It will take a little work to get used to twidling again, but it is doable.
