Itabashi Zangief sent immediately to losers bracket at Milan Games Week after facing the most unpredictable Ken play we've seen yet

DNG|Itabashi Zangief was the number one seed at the Milan Games Week last chance qualifier in Italy. In Itabashi's ideal tournament run, he'd take one of the top two spots in this bracket so as to make it into the 16-man Capcom Pro Tour European Regional Finals tomorrow.

This ideal scenario was shaken very heavily in his very first match as a Ken player by the name of FH|Jimmy would engulf Itabashi in the flaming whirlwind of Shoryukens, Tatsus and wake up medium punches that make up his unrelenting offense.

The number one seeded player simply could not make sense, or keep up with, Jimmy's unpredictable gameplay. Here's a quick taste of what he faced:

Brings back memories of a certain Ryu player at DreamHack 2013 doesn't it? You can watch their full set to see how it plays out below.
Please note that the stream incorrectly labeled Jimmy as "Kaino". The match kicks off around the 6:20 mark of the video.
