Why has Daigo been doing just a lp dp after a forward throw?

I noticed in his recent matches he’s been doing a light dp after a forward throw. It builds meter but isn’t it better to go for a safe jump?


#2

Sometimes the safe jump is too predictable and blocked easily. Standing next your opponent on their wake-up will have them guessing on what you’re going to do.


#3

Builds meter and if timed properly it’s a mixup between EX Tatsu, throw, low, cr.mp frame trap and DP FADC. It’s actually quite nasty if you know how to use it effectively.


#4

If he goes for the ambiguous jumpin he can to crossup the opponent and all the effort he put into pushing the opponent to the corner is lost. I rarely try the ambiguous jumps against most of the top tiers in the game, specially akuma.
