Later? How about we just do it now.
Today was pretty much the Twilight Zone. None of the three players we normally expect on the podiums (Kev, Vader, and Punchboard) made the top three, with Punchy coming the closest at fourth place. Torgo, normally another strong player, joined Pikachu, GRV, and Gavazzi on the bagel bus. A player who had yet to win this season took the top spot for the first time. Dogs and cats living together, total mass hysteria... you get the idea.
The first half was a chain of keys, as we had three games with three picks each. Coupon Boy, Shatter, and Tanzerey got $15,000 each for Any Number leading off. Coupon Boy (again), Unique, and Cephas then got the same amount for Freeze Frame. Finally, PriceFan, Kev, and Tris took fifteen grand apiece for the Race Game.
Thankfully, the second half featured a little bit more scoring to bring things into a more respectable range, but five players (myself included) still ended up going bust on ALL-IN calls. PriceFan picked the last four games of the day correctly to get up to 7/27 and the bronze medal, while Tris was the week's runner-up at 7/37. But as already alluded to, UniquePerspective gets his first win of the season with four correct games and a score of 9/30.
Here we have the full results table for the week. For those who saw the draft that was posted in chat following the show, the cash amounts have changed a bit, as I had previously forgotten to double Friday's money in the pot. Our next game takes place on May Day - don't forget to turn the calendar as you turn in your next set of picks!
