Ok, so we got one wrong. We are not perfect. Nobody, even the world’s best prognosticators, are right EVERY time. But should the blame really be on us?
Yesterday, we predicted that the Circle of Outlaw’s Robert Mizrachi would take the WPT Mirage Poker Showdown crown. He ended up being the first one knocked out. Clearly, Mizrachi folded under the pressure of such lofty expectations. Clearly. Had we kept our mouths shut, it would be Mizrachi, not the Nashvillian Weiss (at right), who would end up winning $1,294,755 and a $25,000 seat the WPT Championship.
But Mizrachi f’d it up.
However, Wicked Chops Poker did accurately call that Elliott Yamin would be sent home on American Idol. We had also predicted WEEKS ago that Chris Daughtry would go home during Week 4 (for real).
See, it’s a well-kept secret (until now) that during the Wicked Chops Wednesday night home game, from approximately 9-9:30 (PM, EST), the pace of our game grinds to a virtual halt as we watch the American Idol results show, argue who is going to get the boot, and discuss all of the things we’d do to Katharine McPhee (let’s just say our homegamers have caught the McPheever, baby).
So whatever, we did get ONE right yesterday. And overall, we’re about 80% accurate in our predictions. If this were baseball, getting a hit 80% of the time would make us freaking legends.
For those of you that actually care more about the results than our predicting abilities and thoughts on American Idol, well, you’ve come to the wrong place. But we’ll give you the results anyway: 1) Stanley Weiss – $1,294,755, 2) Harry Demetriou – $673,272, 3) Devin Porter – $332,937, 4) David Williams – $221,958, 5) Steve Frederick – $166,469, 6) Robert Mizrachi – $129,476.
