I think it's fair to say that Kaci does not fear Filler at all. This is, I believe, at least the third time they've matched up this late into a tournament and Kaci does not flinge or budge at all facing Filler.
I think he's the only player this has happened with, at least that I can recall. Every other pro you basically know if they are going to be top 10 in the world or top 100 in the world by the time they are 19.FSR's surge up the pool ladder has been pretty fascinating. He's been around for a while. It's not like he came flying out of the gates like Filler. He didn't really hit his stride as an elite player until he was 30 years old. Until 2021, I think most people viewed him as little more than David Alcaide's "understudy" and perhaps a third- or even fourth-tier pro.
Some of the other pros who are in that high 700s/low 800s Fargo range should be inspired by him.

I really don’t see why that is a problem. Part of the reason she is invited into the commentators booth is because of who her significant other is. I’d much rather she say what she feels than spout out some corporate non speak!They’ve done a good job keeping Kristina out of the booth during Fedor’s marches, but she made a comment about his and FSR’s match during Semi-Finals #2. She said that FSR got every roll or Fedor got every roll against him. Something to that effect. That is a wholly inappropriate comment for any commentator to make let alone a player’s SO. Even if it’s correct. A little more diplomatic statement would have been different, but since she’s his SO, she needs to even check her comments even more, unfair as that might sound.
That said, Fedor did get a few good rolls. It’s not like he didnt luck out a few times. But FSR got some incredible rolls the last several games, and seemed to out roll Fedor at least 2:1.
Freddie <~~~ not either’s SO
