From the signup thread:

It's completely free to play and if we get at least 50 runners I'll do my very best to ensure that the winner gets an undertitle saying "WSOP 2018 Guesstimania Champion" or similar.

Just PM me the answers to the following questions by 11:00 Pacific Time on Tuesday 29th May and you're in!

Questions

1). Guess the number of runners in Event #1
2). Guess the number of starting tables in Event #3
3). Guess the combined number of bracelets held by members of Event #5's Final Table
4). Guess the number of nationalities represented in Event #16
5). Guess the number of nationalities that have won 2018 Bracelets by Event #20
6). Guess how many places will be paid in Event #23
7). Guess the first place prize of Event #26
8). Guess the age of the winner of Event #32
9). Guess the number of players who will bust on day 1 of Event #33
10). Guess how much money a Min-Cash will be in Event #44
11). Guess how many cashes Phil Hellmuth will have by Event #49
12). Guess how many women will play Event #52
13). Guess the combined Hendon Mob earnings of the Final Table of Event #56
14). Guess what percentage of the field will make it to Day 2 in Event #60
15). Guess how many chips the Main Event Day 1 chip leader will have
16). Guess how many nationalities will be at the Main Event Final Table
17). Guess the combined age of the Main Event Final Table in years
18). Guess the number of players at the Big One for One Drop Final Table who already have a million dollar score.
19). Guess the combined number of entries for Events #6, #7, #11 and #19
20). What will the age in years be of the oldest player to win an Open Bracelet this summer?

Stuff you might want to know, but you don't need to
-If you want to edit your entry then just PM me again with your changes before the deadline and I'll do the rest
-Nationalities will be determined by Hendon Mob flags
-Here's a link to the tournaments to make your life a little easier
-Research as much as you want if you think it will make you more accurate
-I'll reveal the answers periodically through the summer when I get a minute and I've access to the official answers
-Age will be done in whole number of years completed
-Score will be done based on your ranking of absolute difference to the correct answer
-Any questions then just ask in thread

Re: WSOP 2018 GUESSTIMANIA REVEAL

I'll reveal this a question at a time once we get some answers. If I find the energy and time then I might tease some questions before they are revealed.

For instance

1). Guess the number of runners in Event #1

-Four people put the exact same answer
-The difference between the biggest and smallest answers given is 192

Re: WSOP 2018 GUESSTIMANIA REVEAL

For those of us competing in all three of Peehs, Fantasy and Guesstamania, I think adding up our total finishing positions to determine the PFG would be appropriate.

PFG, of course, standing for Pokercast Friendly Giant.

Re: WSOP 2018 GUESSTIMANIA REVEAL

Interesting that the 4 that submitted 666 are 4/6 in the PFG

Is this a sign of things to come for Xander and Wilbury?

Re: WSOP 2018 GUESSTIMANIA REVEAL

2). Guess the number of starting tables in Event #3

If you survive your day 1 table in Event #3 then you get paid.
They are paying 50 places.
I therefore conclude that there are 50 tables

Here's what you guys said:

darrinc364
that_pope406.5
Fatal Checkraise406.5
hkyref33406.5
BingeThinker429.5

Recreational Player4311.5
Actual Answer50 
Wilbury Twist5413
xander biscuits606.5
Richiegone1112
PeteBlow3551

Me thinks that PeteBlow misread this as how many runners and not how many tables...

Kind of. I picked a number for the runners and was supposed to divide it by 7.5. Forgot to do the divide.
Doh!

Oh well, everyone needed the headstart.

I like it. Thinking realistically, I feel like I can make top 5.

Re: WSOP 2018 GUESSTIMANIA REVEAL

Just to confirm for question 3, the official final table is 8 players?
They combine at 9, but 10th and 9th earn the same money.

Re: WSOP 2018 GUESSTIMANIA REVEAL

Final 8 players count for Q3 since that's the official final table

3). Guess the combined number of bracelets held by members of Event #5's Final Table

Here they are:



Could have been a big swing on this question if a Negreanu, Ivey or Hellmuth made the final table, but the correct answer was 7

Yep, this is precisely why I went so high... figured there would be an Erik Seidel or Negreanu type at the table. The funny thing is, I thought I would be the highest guess. Not even close!

Thinking of quitting my job and becoming a professional Guesstominiac!

Does anyone know where my fellow professionals reside for tax purposes?

4). Guess the number of nationalities represented in Event #16

Country
Australia
Austria
Belarus
Brazil
Bulgaria
Canada
China
Finland
France
Germany
Greece
India
Israel
Italy
Netherlands
Portugal
Spain
Switzerland
Taiwan
UK
Ukraine
USA

is the correct list of answers as far as I can tell. There were a couple of players I couldn't find Hendon Mob pages for, so if I'm wrong then I'll adjust scores

Glad to see I'm drawing live in this contest, because I'm laying a gigantic egg in the other.
