Zhokh is a monster. Searching a few of his other vids, it looks like only Cyplenkov can beat him easily, out of everyone. Probably because Denis' own hand is so huge that Zhokh's weird hand doesn't give any advantage.

 

Devon on the other hand wasn't able to get a good grip on Oleg, and didn't have hand control at all. Either way, seems like the only way to beat this guy is with massive side pressure. I wonder how he'd do against Pushkar?

And, probably someone who's an actual armwrestler can estimate this better, but it looks to me as though with different judging, this easily could've been a 3-2 win for Devon, instead of 3-0, which is crazy. 

 

Also, Brzenk looked very very strong in the matches that I saw on the stream (didn't see the whole thing).

I didn't get to see the live stream.  Did Brzenk win?  I hope he did.  I've always liked him and his quiet style.  I just re-read Eric Roussin's great article on John armwrestling an "unknown" back in '94 for some pretty big sidebet money.  Great story, Eric!

Oleg was amazing. Kinda reminds me of Lamar Gant deadlifting. Built for it but still damn impressive to watch a 165# guy go through everyone.

Thanks Ben.

 

John Brzenk went undefeated with the right arm yesterday, wiinning both the 220 class and the 221+ class, as well as winning a 2 out of 3 supermatch with Marcio Barboza after the tournament. To me, he looked like he was in his best shape since 2009.

The strongest I've ever seen John was at the 2009 ROTN Tournament where he seemed invincible! Never, ever count John out

in any tournament! This is why he's the BEST arm wrestler to ever grace planet earth!

For sure!!! This kid is AMAZING indeed!

 

Unbelievable left arm! His forearm and hand are insane!!!

In AW if you commit an elbow foul (out of pad) in winning position, it is a foul not a pin even if your opponent hand touch the pad in the process
