If you don't have time to watch it all, skip to game 3 where he plays one-handed:

Will have to watch this later. I love his tutorials

Oh, golly. I was just trying to get down the nitty gritty of my own strategy since I seem to have plateaued. I figured the only way to beat my current high score was to have a game with a super jackpot/double super and wizard mode. And not one of those wizard modes where I totally beef it. Well, let's see how he does it...

yeah Bowen is very good, I like watching is family guy tutorial and other ones he has done. This makes me want to get Tommy.

I love the bang back he does at around the 13 minute mark. He ended up tilting, but it was still cool to see. Bowen makes all the shots look so easy. I play Tommy every day, and I still suck at it.

Bowen plays better one handed then I can with both Great video and tutorial and I've always wanted a Tommy myself but just the timing never worked out.

That BSD tutorial made me sell mine...

Bowen simply hypnotizes me as he does the vocal play-by-play while playing!

I thought I would see what that would be like . . .talking out loud . . . attempting to explain my playing strategy . . . all the while physically tackling the game.

Wife walks in and sees me talking to myself. Can't explain this one adequately . . .

Thanks to Bowen, I now have an appointment at the psychiatrist for Monday morning . . .

His MB video is also insanely good. I also like his death saves.

Quoted from Av8:

I also like his death saves ...

Is that what it was? I can never remember the difference between a death save and a bang back.

Tried the one handed thing before. You can tell he has done that a few more times

I think bang backs are when you slam the heal of your palm against the lockdown bar when coming down the outlane.

Bowen is a true master. used to play tommy alot, i couldn't come close to doing what he does. and the one-handed thing? c'mon man thats just nuts. thanks bowen, keep em coming.

Great tutorial by Bowen. My Tommy is pretty new (owned less than 1 month), therefore, I have a lot to learn on this strategic game. After watching and learning what to do and what to avoid, my last 10 games (since watching the tutorial) have increased scores of approx 100 million per game, including my highest score to date of 621 million.
