First, if I'm not mistaken Gunnarsson got a million on Donkey Kong, and then he was able to get to the Tetris Semi Finals.
I don't think that will ever be done again.
Yes, a Semi Final Tetris player could get a million on Donkey Kong, but I doubt it'll ever go the other way around.
It's two different worlds now. All the Semi Finals Tetris players are all under 21 if I'm not mistaken.
The youngest Donkey Kong million point player is now in his early 20s.
We have amazing players, but you need to constantly have insta reactions.
So I'm fairly confident that no other million point Donkey Kong player will ever make the Tetris Semi Finals ever again

not you

Hahahahaha, well Brian has a point here, in fairness, Allen.  :D

I did have footage of Allen erm... tackling Tetris on my old laptop - now lost to time, unfortunately.

I don't suppose anyone has the legendary footage of the Rooty Hill Tetris King I'm talking about? It would certainly address the point of George's original post, in that we could determine if Allen could be another possible Tetris / DK master in the making.

Oh yes, Jry - thank you! That seems to be the very one.

Surely the 'Tetris Semi-Finals' beckon! And - for the love of god - the million on DK must be just around the corner!
