No perfect brackets left in Warren Buffett’s billion dollar pool

2 Comments

Warren Buffett is going to be hanging onto that billion.

Not a single perfect bracket entered into Buffet’s Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge survived the NCAA tournament’s opening round. It barely lasted until dinner time on Friday, as George Washington’s 71-66 loss to Memphis eliminated the final three perfect brackets.

And while that was the deathblow, it was Duke’s loss to Mercer that did the most damage. After Stanford’s win over New Mexico, there were just 16 perfect brackets left.

That said, there are still people out there that are 32-for-32 in picking games. Check out this dude Brad, who has yet to miss on one of his picks.

Not bad.

I bet he wishes he entered that bracket in the Buffett’s pool.

Here’s another angle of the dunk:
