What happened with RoseDuke's style?

I was suprised to see RodeDuke's game on KGS. Recently he often plays on Tygem instead.
Also, he changed his fuseki! In the past it was typical to see 6-4 and 5-5 stones in his games.
Koreans proved that these corner stones are bad :) so, Victor returned back to classic things.

At the end of the game he mentioned:

RoseDuke [8d]: I was lucky
RoseDuke [8d]: you could have killed the bottum group, and it will be gameover for me
RoseDuke [8d]: if you just make two eye for your group, my cut in center does not work.

He is right, it seems. I added the variation for W 66

He is only half-joking. Of course nobody can say 5-5 is bad for sure, but Korean pros are such good fighters they often end up with a better result.

Are you joking, or is the current professional consensus that moves like 5-5 are definitely bad?

No way to rescue that

At the start of the game they were 8d and 7d, at the end, they had swapped ranks.

maybe i'm too noobish to read this, but wouldn't w j18 now at the end rescue white and even kill the black center group?
