TeaFrida is the only one to have guessed 2 of the men's medalists correctly.  If you got a 0 for the men's predictions, don't worry - you weren't alone.

 

Results in order of high score:

 

river 5 6 6 9 2 0 2 2 2 34
airi 0 6 9 9 2 0 2 2 2 32
Sukigirl 5 5 6 9 2 0 0 2 2 31
Paskud 3 5 6 9 0 2 2 0 2 29
ralucutzagy 3 5 6 6 2 0 2 0 2 26
LadyLou 3 5 6 5 2 0 2 2 0 25
Legacy and Hope 0 6 6 9 2 0 2 0 0 25
mercedes 5 4 6 3 0 0 2 2 2 24
Sayu93 3 5 4 6 2 0 2 2 0 24
Old Cat Lady 2 5 6 6 0 2 0 2 0 23
sallycinnamon 3 4 9 5 0 0 2 0 0 23
TeaFrida 6 5 6 0 2 0 0 2 2 23
Figure Frenzy 0 4 6 6 2 0 0 2 2 22
Louitunes 2 1 6 9 2 0 0 0 0 20

 

 

 

Answer Key:

Men's Podium 1. Boyang Jin 2. Han Yan 3. Matteo Rizzo
4. Keegan Messing
 
Ladies Podium 1. Anna Scherbakova 2. Satoko Miyahara 3. Elizaveta Tutkamysheva 4. Young You  
Pairs Podium 1. Sui/Han 2. Pen/Jin 3. Ilyushekina/Bilodeau
4. Della Monica/Guarise
 
Dance Podium 1. Sinitsina/Katsalapov 2. Chock/Bates 3. Fournier Beaudry/Soensen 4. Wang/Liu  

 

BQ1: Will the men's or ladies' medalists have higher FS scores before factoring (will use raw PCS)

Men - 372.83 (Ladies had 360.82).  The men pulled ahead largely on the back of Boyang's resurgence and Scherbakova getting ! called on all 3 lutzes

 

BQ2: Who will have the highest raw PCS across both programs?

Sinitsina/Katsalapov - 93.83 total

 

BQ3: Which champion will win by the smallest margin?

Dance - 1.35 points

 

BQ4: Who will get the highest GOE on a spin (includes dance, pair, sbs, and singles spins)

Satoko Miyahara FS - layback - 4.44

 

BQ5: Will the men or ladies have more < and <<

Ladies had 3 times as many carots called at 45 to 15 for the men

Wow, I did quite well. :O

Oh dear!  I may as well not have bothered with the BQ questions again and I suppose I must stop trying to put my little NKorean pairs couple on the podium.

 

(But I'm probably not going to) 🤣

Same here, that's so many easy points I also lost there. S/K is Russia's No.1 team after all while C/B is currently not USA's no.1 team (though I hope they'll be after Nationals :P so it should've been more evident that they'd give it to S/K even with a boring free dance. I was also fooled by the not so Russia-friendly panel. But since there is a hierarchy in ID the placements are much more predictable than in singles (not counting when a couple makes a big mistake).

 

Ah well, I should predict CoR and NHK better! But CoR won't be that easy either, especially men and umm maybe ladies too.

So... I went from usually middle of the pack (with a Skate Canada disaster) to gold? Much like the real thing, our Cup of China was unpredictable, too.

LMAO how is it possible that, at each GP, predictions seem to be getting harder and harder?

I'm trying to rotate my silver jinx among singles skaters, sorry for those I'm predicting this round but maybe they'll be able to do like Alyona and prove I am not, in fact, jinxing people

Pairs is quite hard to tell, I'm still guessing T/M will be scored better than B/K if cleanish so going for them...

bonus question are so hard:13877886: the one about difference in placements between SP and FS...I'm being conservative in my prediction but I fear what can happen in the volatile Men field:tumblr_inline_mg16f1RxCn1qdlkyg::tumblr_inline_n18qr5AMus1qid2nw:

 

@Old Cat Lady just to be sure, by "single element" you mean the BV+GOE even for a whole jump combo, right?

I just realized I did my predictions on three hours of sleep and forgot to put in alternates in case someone withdraws. :headdesk2:

 

I've submitted them now, I hope it isn't too late.
