This match was my second against Diamond M2's Dhalsim. The first was a loss; he kept me zoned out with that long-range fierce punch all day. I learned from that loss that my priority should be to crowd Dhalsim as persistently as possible.
Round 1 was especially satisfying because I managed to hit him with a hop-Ultra I at the end. Since Blanka's charge-dependent Ultras can't be comboed into, any method of tricking the opponent into hitting a button at the wrong time is gold.
