Nate Silver Faces Mike Watson

Nate Silver

Nathaniel Read "Nate" Silver (born January 13, 1978) is an American statistician, sabermetrician, psephologist, and writer. That's the first line from Silver's Wikipedia page, which shows a huge diversity in things he's done over the years. But Silver is of course best known for his correct prediction of the most recent Presidential Election in the United States.

Yesterday, the PokerNews team had a chance to talk to Silver on our podcast, and you can listen to that right here.

Silver's playing his first $10,000 buy-in poker tournament since the 2011 World Series of Poker, and he's facing none other than Mike Watson at his starting table. Watson's been having an incredible last 12 months with almost $2.5 million in live tournament earnings. His best result was a victory in the €50,000 Majestic High Roller at the WSOPE where he took home the €1,000,000 first place prize.
