Matchup vs Zangief

This thread is for specific details of the Dhalsim vs Zangief matchup.

VSkill on reaction against running bear grab (its startup is throw immune, right?) could lead to an easy “jump in combo”

just throwing out pokes can be dangerous because of giefs st.hp armor.

getting him to use his vskill and then tagging him before he fully recovers seems to be key in this match

This match up has been hard for me. The only way to successfully keep him away for me has been v-reversals. All pokes and zoning keeps getting eaten by any decent Gief player.
