May 8, 2018 Prediction Contest – Final Results

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 7:00 am

For anyone that has been following our first ever Players v Fans Prediction Contest it’s now time to reveal the final result, and I have to say it couldn’t really have been closer and the giraffe was only secured by the winning team in the final two frames of the pulsating final last night.

I can reveal that Team Baize Boys, despite being behind since the contest began, have John Higgins to thank for their victory. The fact he won 16 frames rather than 15 last night meant that they triumphed by a single frame, 1062 to 1061.

The final results from the team event are below and a hearty (if begrudging) congratulations from me to Team Captain Joe Perry, Mark Allen, Rob Milkins, Barry Hawkins, Michael Holt and Mike Dunn on their narrow victory.

In terms of the individual event however it was a very different story at the top of the table, with the top two places being occupied by two numpties, One Step and myself. We are now in discussions about some transfers next season as clearly our fellow numpties did not perform as we expected and the captain Alec Peace has already been given his marching orders from that role. Stern words are already being exchanged behind the scenes as we lick our collective wound.

It’s been a lot of fun doing this for the first time and maybe next year we’ll do something similar. A very big thank you to our sponsor who will be sending off the prize giraffes pictured below to their new homes.
