Funnily enough, I forgot Alex (SA I, II) in that list lol.

His pokes seem very good in general. At least, that's what it looks like to me.
- First thing you've obviously noticed is that Dudley has his fair share of target combos. They're easy to work on and link into, such as f+MK, MK, HP or LP, MP, MK (You'll hear him say "One, two, three!" during a successful target combo chain). You can cancel midway (especially with the ones that uses the MP button) into a special or even a super.
- For his normals, I find his crouch MP one of the most useful. Rapid fast, and is very easy to link into his SAIII. In terms of jump-ins, you've got nothing better than his jump HK - hits deep and has a decent hitbox - and you can link into any of your grounded normals. You find some decent juggle setups after his crouch HK, but they mostly require good timing and the opponent being positioned in the corner.
- As for his specials:
= Jet Uppercut is best used during combos, and not often as an anti-air, since it can easily trade hits with any jump normal.
= Machine Gun Punch is nice to cover distance, and if you can guarantee that you'll hit the opponent. EX version allows juggling capabilities, so try to see what you can follow it up with.
= Cross Counter is something you should NOT use when you have low life since you still take damage once you get hit. Use the normal version mostly, but not too oftenly either.
= Ducking (HCF + K) has two followups, one with a punch and one with mini-uppercut, and generally, is good to avoid some high projectiles like Ryu's Hadouken. Don't use too much during a match just so wouldn't be predictable.
= Short Swing Blow (HCB + K) is another move to avoid any close or quick attacks. Pull off an EX version of the move for a surprise attack since it's incredibly fast.
= Oh, and since you're using SAIII, the button version changes the distance Dudley moves forwards with. LP is the shortest, while HP is the longest.
More stuff and tips are available on SRK's Wiki entry for Dudley. Do give it a read.
