    the second sequence is even better http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...Cnbnxp4#t=133s (please disregard the jackass Hamilton talking about Eldredge's quad)
    I love that program. But there's no need to suffer Hamilton's commentary - just watch the Euros version! The step sequences are still lovely.

    Abt was/is a wonderful skater who didn't get his due, but did you have to drag the comments about Todd into this discussion? That said, I like Scott Hamilton as a skater/person, not so much as a commentator.

    Re; footwork - just about anything Kurt does!

    Never heard of David Liu. That was most enjoyable!! Dude was all COP before COP--interesting and creative spin positions included.
    BARK LESS. WAG MORE.

    Possibly my favorite Abt routine. I wish he had done a Blues program because his edges are perfect for it.

    I love a good serpentine step sequence with a fun theme or effortless speed
    Ah the gorgeous skating skills of Japanese men ...

    One thing that emerges for me is how large the gap was among skaters in terms of step sequence choreography in the 6.0 era. The step sequences from skater to skater were very different in their technical content and difficulty/intricacy/variety (to borrow a phrase from components). I wonder if skaters and coaches back then felt they had little incentive to put a difficult step sequence in a program and practice really hard for it.

    Abt's SP skated to the Russian sailors dance has wonderful footwork. I don't remember if he skated it in 2003 or another year.

    He had it for two seasons, 2002-3 (the year he won Russian Nats) and 2003-4.

    Remember when he did Gasolina at the Red Square gala a few years back? That was fun.

    I really enjoyed Abt back in the day, and thought he was underappreciated, but his posture annoys the heck out of me.

    Sandhu's tango SP. Circular step, his gorgeous camel, followed by a most fierce straightline

    I always enjoyed Bourne and Kraatz's straight line step sequence from their Waltz/Polka OD in 2003.

    That is the first routine that popped into my head as soon and I saw this thread. I just love it.

    Much better than having to listen to Scott! Thank you!

    I loved the Sailor routine...and Gasolina was such fun. He did some really great exhibition numbers...Zorro was another one! (for fun his Pulp Fiction & Mambo, also loved What a Wonderful World & the A Postcard in Winter)

    *sigh* I really miss Abt!

    I must add Mao's step sequence in her Rachamaninoff LP in 2014, particularly in Sochi. It had both technique and emotion.

    Chan's step sequence in his 'Elegy' SP was wonderful. Actually most of his step sequences are. He flies across the ice.
