Nice list!!! 76 and 199+ look especially stacked... 54 and 98 have some beasts in them too though. I'd give my predictions but won't for fear of being called a professor by Vazgen however, if a prediction thread is started, I might chime in... especially if Bob Brown starts it with a $500 offer to the man who can predict top 4 in every class accurately.
14 State Titles, 2 National Titles (left hand 165 lbs. 2014 AAA Open Class, left hand 176 lbs. 2015 USAA Pro Class).
Two time runner up at Nationals in the 154 lbs class.
Have competed in 20 different states - 3 countries.

Josh, you are more than a professor now... . Today whole American armwrestling is based on your opinion. Well, you have some competition in your job, but I am sure you can beat them easy... You don't need to wait untill someone will start a new thread))). Go ahead. You got the permision))))
Just say what you think about Kyung-Ho's upcoming performance...! Good task???

Believe it or not Vazgen, I don't really know anything on the Korean pullers... with the exception of Seung-Min Bae, who used to live in the USA. Predictions? Okay, I'll give you one, I predict Yosef gets more free supplements than you but you win more prize $ than he does in the armwrestling tournament. Good guesses?
P.S. Yes Chaffee vs. Lupkes first round would be amazing!!! But for their sake, I hope they don't meet up till later in the day And yes, I'm predicting them at first and 2nd... which probably means Underwood is gonna win and then give me crap for not picking him

True, Lupkes and Chaffee would be a good match...at any round! I believe, here is the beauty of a tournament, the strongest (in all aspects) survives... . Josh, no need of any predictions. Let the Strongest win.
I give up against Yosef. No way I can beat him in supplements harvest))))
But I could catch you on Korean puller prediction disability!!!!
