Well I've certainly had a disappointing 2 weeks.

This past weekend was a bit of an anomaly - there's a handful of these every year that seem to defy patterns and expectations.  In another prediction game I used to play, these would be the weeks where someone totally random (who usually finishes 57th) wins.

As far back as I can remember, I've always struggled with holiday weekends and the week after holiday weekends.

Gigantic snowstorms count as holidays, imo.

Although now that I say this... I won the last holiday weekend. So maybe I don't know anything about myself.

Those anomaly weekends will be the ones responsible for eliminating the best players from the Tournament lol

I got awful lucky that my opposite didn't pick.... no way I would have won with a 65.

OMG, I beat the Derby God!  By a mere  .6

 

I thought his $7m pick for 50Shades was going to clinch it for him.

I'd curse PPZ but almost everyone whiffed on that.  So fuck you Nicholas Sparks!

 

New Release score - 49.684%   :lol:

Damn, I'm out of the tournament and got my first ever 0% score (for PPZ).

So will this tournament be running again after this is over?

 

Or will you have a week or two break? I would request a break, that way we can take scores from the week before and use those as the seeding for the tournament.

Congrats to @kayumanggi and @moviecriticguy who advance to the final match to determine the winner of the tournament.

 

@Wrath and @Bozly will battle out for 3rd place.

 

I'll try to get the tournament page fixed to display both matches properly

lol No pressure.

 

Pfff. Your worst case scenario is 2nd! That's not bad at all. Whereas if I lose to Bozly I'm out of the money in 4th! ;)

 

I'm honestly still shocked I wasn't knocked out in the first round.
