For a while, it seemed that BTS leaders Choteria and adnaz could do no wrong with their picks, but as Kansas once sang, “Nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky.” Choteria and adnaz both saw their lengthy runs come to an end this past weekend, their respective streaks of 36 and 34 games standing as the top BTS marks of the 2009 season.
And so, we head into a brand new month with a new wave of contestants at the front of the pack. waw_3card leads the way with a 28-game streak, ace21dlr and dlmead8 are tied for second at 27 games and 14 more are crammed into the fourth spot at 26 games.
