Anyway, the Stars pas is a little idiosyncratic; maybe the BP don't think it's enough B to pull. Anybody know who's his partner in that? Or have I missed the obvious again?

There apparently was one news story in America. From the Greenville (S. C.) News:
Mr. Phillips's teacher (since his days at Governor's School) Stanislav Issaev, People's Artist of the Russian Republic, went with him to Seoul:
...He says that when Phillips performed the variation from "Flames of Paris" at the competition in Seoul, "It was a done deal. He showed the prowess of a finished, polished artist."
"I remember when he was 13 or 14 (Phillips was 10 when he started studying with Issaev), he told me nobody can stop him. It's part of his nature, which I can't explain other than he is in a constant search for perfection." He's also an exemplary ambassador for his country, Issaev adds. "A proud American blessed with grace and good taste."
Reached at home in New York, Phillips agrees with Issaev about the risk of competing in Seoul, nevertheless, he couldn't say no to his competitive side. "Of course you never know. You can always have an off day, and you only get one shot at it (the prize)."
Not only has this not been posted on ABT's site, I can't even find it in Mr. Phillips's blog.
