The NBC Heads-Up Poker Championship match-ups have been set, and I have made my predictions, as noted above. This time I did it without the help of Ambien.
My picks are completely unscientific. Sometimes it's just who I like better or would like to see win. Sometimes it's just voting against somebody I despise. Sometimes it's just a whim or a hunch. Not too surprisingly, I tend to run about 50% in these predictions every year.
I'm picking a dark horse--Olivier Busquet--to win it all.
The ever-amazing KevMath has already set up a place where you can enter your predictions for the entire event, and will be taking $10 entries. Point system, etc., all explained here. I decided to add a little spice to my life and submitted my guesses along with my $10. Maybe I'll clean up. More likely, it's kissing the money good-bye, but it will be fun.
