Ladies and Gentlemen,
I'm proud to report the 2013 ProPicks results. Thanks to everyone for competing. We had 48 participants this year, a new record for the ProPicks world. I hope to continue my work on the site and maintain the accuracy and ease of use that you've come to expect as long as there's still a championship to follow. Thanks again.
Regional bonus winner - Brian Gottlieb
2WD winner - 22-way tie for first
SPGT winner - Corey Voigt
Overall winner - Eric Iverson
LSPR winner - Al Dantes
And now for the moment you've all been waiting for... The 2013 ProPicks CHAMPIONS!
Regional Champ - Brian Gottlieb with a solid 2 point lead.
2WD Champ - Mason Moyle/Don Burress after the tiebreaker failed*
SPGT Champ - Michael Fennell/Kent Gardam after the tiebreaker was messy*
Overall Champ - Eric Iverson with a massive 4 point lead
The 2013 ProPicks Grand Champion is... Don Burress! That's me! I'm so honored. I'd like to thank all the little people and, of course, David Higgins for pressuring Mr. Block into making a bit of a mistake at LSPR. I took a risk and it paid off.
Folks, thanks for participating in ProPicks this year. I look forward to your comments and suggestions for improvements (particularly with the tiebreaker rules, should we use a particular event's picks (decided beforehand) as a tiebreaker?).
Good luck next season!
* Mason Moyle and I split the points, in head to head, we tied 3 times and each won 2 times, therefore the tie breaker goes to neither of usand according to the rules... we split the championship glory.
** This one might be more controversial. There is a 3-way tie. In the head-to-head-to-head, Michael Fennell won 1 and tied for winning 2 with Kent Gardam who also won 1. There was a 3-way tie at Ojibwe. Corey Voigt won 2. I interpret this as a split championship for Fennell/Gardam.
