Samurai Shodown is seeing quite a lot of play leading up to its debut as a main game at EVO 2019 next month. This past weekend we saw one of the game's first major tournament appearances at CEO 2019, and veteran fighting game player Justin Wong walked away with first place using Tam Tam.

In a new video on his YouTube channel, Justin put together a rundown of his SamSho main, providing commentary over some of his matches to further analyze what the character is capable of.

Anyone familiar with Wong's play knows he takes the phrase "lame" to a whole new level, consistently content with playing keep away and testing opponents' patience against his own.

Anyone familiar with the new Samurai Shodown knows that this game is characterized by relatively slow pacing and extremely hard-hitting attacks, meaning JWong/SamSho is more or less a match made in heaven.

If you need any proof of that, take a look at the top eight results of the aforementioned CEO 2019 wherein Wong took home the gold from the winners' bracket after having lost only a single game in top eight.

The perceptive player has put together a commentary video featuring some footage of his Tam Tam, who he feels is "extra top tier." Justin goes over some of Tam's stronger tools, showing us when to use them and how to pair them to create extremely sticky situations for foes.
