My Unbelievable Bracket

Posted by Paul Anderson on March 20, 2017 at 4:30 PM

Game Of The Week

 

This week's game comes from round 2 of the March Swiss 90 between Mike Smith and Dean Brown.  Mike is a newcomer to the club, but he was able to pull off the upset over the oldtimer.  I think Mike harnessed his inner Wagner and played a little chin music for Dean, as he wiffed with his Louisville slugger.


You see, Mike joined my March Madness group, and, as I looked at his bracket, I could tell he has a tendency to swing for the seats.  He has bypassed all 12 of the top seeds and picked West Virginia to win it all.  So far, he is not connecting with all the upsets, but he was able to get Michigan over Louisville.


Mike is still doing better than Matthew Hansen.  I also asked Matthew to create a bracket for my group.  However, Matthew is like a chess engine running on a super-computer in the cloud.  He sounds smart, but he is only as good as the program, and his program is way too literal.  Next time, I am going to ask Matthew, "Would you like to FILL in a bracket?"


Matthew's Unbelievable Bracket is aptly named.  When I looked at it, I could not believe a chess player would submit an empty bracket.  It reminded me of the Far Side comic about the student leaning, with all his might, on the door of the School For The Gifted, failing to see the "PULL" sign.

 

Here Mike didn't fail to see the Cinderella move and take down the seasoned veteran.
