I've seen Cesar anchor sometimes. But it doesn't matter either way. THere are times where anchoring will make playing cleanly easier, and times when free hand will make playing cleanly easier. Learn to do both comfortably.

Cesar is not anchoring. The second guy is though.

No. Only if you're not used to playing unanchored. Otherwise, all anchoring does is add tension.

1. No.
2. No - what it looks like there is that he used to anchor and as he's loosened up he's lost the attachment - he clearly doesn't need to keep his pinky there, but he's still putting it there occasionally out of habit (which is a tiny little bit of a bad habit, whereas a fixed anchor is a big bad habit)

The point is to be moving freely and not glued to one spot, and that's really all that matters.
