I was carefully following this, and wondering, of course, I kinda beat both of them occasionally at different sudoku flavors, especially because they waste a lot of time with explanations for audience, but for this kind of cryptic crosswords I have no clue, and the best I can do is to watch and wonder. I could do them in my native language, up to a certain level, but for English, I am totally lost, but won't waste a good opportunity to learn and wonder.

The guy is really good! But when he filled the definition for "COARSE", well... I almost fell down from the chair. I was thinking immediately to this forum thread, haha.
