I have mostly the same coaching points as I did in my last post. Looks like, on some reps, you're breaking the elbows too early (initiating the 3rd Pull too soon). I think that may come from the habit of cutting off the 2nd Pull like from the earlier videos when Greg said you were picking your feet up too early. Make sure you push the ground as long as you can and then pull down.

Also, try to make the adjustment with the shoulders in the starting position. As you bring the bar up and push it into your body the shoulders will naturally retract making it easier to keep the bar close throughout the movement. It's much more difficult to keep the bar close if your shoulders are protracted.
