In our Chicagoist Tournament Challenge pool, 103 of us competed but only one could come out on top. The winner of the 2013 Chicagoist Tournament Challenge is danookas' danookas 2 entry. Danookas correctly selected Louisville to win it all, and accumulated 1240 total points in the pool, which was also ahead of 98.6 percent of all ESPN Tournament Challenge entries. The winner beat out the badej21 1 and DemonRicky 1 entries, who tied with 1190 points. As for our own entry, we barely finished in the top half with a 49th place finish.

If you're the owner of the danookas2 entry, please shoot me an email at benjy[at]chicagoist[dot]com to coordinate your prize. Congrats on winning the Chicagoist Tournament Challenge!
