Nate Silver, correct about Obama’s win

Nate Silver is by now a famous statistics guru in the USA. He correctly predicted, for a second time in a row, the victory of Barack Obama for the American presidential elections. What people do not know is that Nate used to be a brilliant poker player and a large part of his wealth comes from gambling.

Nate Silver was born in East Lansing, Michigan, on January 13, 1978. In 2000, he graduated from the University of Chicago and degreed in economic studies. He started working as an economic consultant at KPMG in Chicago, while still tending to his hobbies, baseball and statistics. He left KPMG in 2004 and took on poker, which he did wonderfully. Estimations say that he made around $400,000 per year from the game. He was part of the WSOP Main Event in 2009.

Accuracy in predictions

This year, Nate Silver was right on when he forecast the victory of Barack Obama for the White House elections. He did the same thing in 2008, when he predicted both the presidential and the legislative results. Four years ago, he was shot to stardom when he gave the correct name of the winner in 49 out of 50 states in the USA. The only miss was the state of Indiana, where Obama won back then by 1%. In 2008, Nate’s preview about the winners of the 35 Senate seats had also no error.
