Round 12 involved conservative predicting from the overall leaders and some risky, and ultimately rewarding, predicting from Round 12's best predictors.

Argentina's tucman managed to score 643 points without even using his joker. The predictor got a perfect score for prediction, but lost out on potentially achieving the highest round score of this season.

Second place ahammed from India also chose not to use his joker for a possible 100 bonus points.

Of the top five for this round, fifth placed Chagal from Germany was the only predictor to earn points by correctly using his joker.

Germanbark and his top dogs
Six rounds later Germanbark is still No1. The Argentinian's low key consistency is keeping him at the top despite the flurry of contenders.

The joker's curse also infected the overall leaders; Saururrex was the only predictor in the overall top ten who managed to capture the 100 bonus points. The Mexican climbed from sixth to second place and his impressive prediction history could make him Germanbark's strongest contender yet.

kammer's sneak attack continues. The first place hopeful gained 116 points on the leader despite incorrectly predicting five draws out of the ten games. After last week's inspiring performance ALLESSIA96 dropped from second to fourth place. The Italian only managed a two-out-of-ten prediction this week.

Shocks and surprises
The top ten predictors of Round 12 paid careful attention to our featured game of the week and nine of them correctly predicted a Leixoes win for 88 points.

In another upset, eight of the top ten Round 12 predictors correctly foresaw the Pirates beating Kaizer Chiefs away in the Soweto Derby. The risky prediction earned them 85 points.

Ironically, not a single one of the top ten overall predictors backed Leixoes or Orlando Pirates to win this weekend. It just goes to show, it's never to late to start playing and climb your way up that leaderboard!
