That's a bad angle to judge. From left to right it looks like 1,2,3,4... but that's what angle does.

Find me a pic where kai is hitting a pose and his gut is massive. He did a very good job hiding it today.

He had his stomach under control today and what a difference it made.

At first I thought Phil won it, but the more I look at the photos Kai just out muscles him (except arms of course).

Its not as bad as it was at olympia. It was really out there at olympia.

i thought it was a lot better at the olympia. his gut hurt his double bi today. most particularly, it protruded much more at the top (Ronnie style) than it did at the Olympia.

Disagree. I think his gut was best its ever been.

You need to look at shots taken front on to see. (not myspace angles)

Although you are pretty much right, look at Kai's crab MM pose. His biceps are like ****ing baseballs and his tricep in the side tri pose is striated too. I think Phil's arms just look better from an aesthetics standpoint but Kai's arms are damn freaky too. Check his biceps in the RDB.

I'm not sure what to do with your lat spread pic. I'll focus on this shot.

Unfortunately, almost all angles are "myspace" angles. This was immediately noticeable in the videos of both events the second the fdb shot was hit, where perfect front on shots don't show up often enough to hide distention.

And his stomach is noticeably protruding and giving a rounded appearance in that FDB, despite being totally front on. Whichever you think looks better is one thing, but he clearly had more distention at today's show than at the Olympia.

Despite the "myspace angle", Kai's taper is killer in this Olympia fdb shot. This was the same story in the Olympia webcast, and any picture I can find from any bodybuilding covering outlet. I would give him this pose.

Kai's taper is offset by his gut, despite the front on shot. This was the same story in the Arnold webcast, and most if not all pictures I can find from any bodybuilding covering outlet. Certainly more so than at the Olympia. I would place him last in the post this time.

http://pics.musculardevelopment.com/photos/transferred/_P8C0084.jpg

The difference is only a slight bulge, but it changes the pose dramatically (how the lines converge, and thus the taper). People were praising Kai's fdb after the Olympia for a reason, and it is once again coming under fire, for a reason.

from those pics (and from the vid), I think Branch looked to be holding the most water out of all of them. Kai was full but he wasn't holding a lot of water. Mainly in his chest and delts, but not as much as you make it seem.
