As you may already know, PJ's science team has figured out who the next WSOP Main Event winner is going to be. Our crack team has used a cutting-edge poker seismograph along with previously unheard-of statistical methods to calculate where the next winner is located and even come up with a name€“ Ron Amos. It's amazing what modern science is capable of! Based on the geographical location of previous Main Event winners, our crack team deduced that the most likely winner currently resides in a garage in the small town of Quincy. Since Amos apparently doesn'€™t live in a garage, some supplementary calibration of the poker seismograph was needed, but now it appears to work perfectly.
