  5. Jay Inslee suspends his campaign. A little surprising since he recently crossed the donor threshold, but never really gained traction in the polls.

    Hah, feels nice to finally have a DDP hit who isn't a Drop 40 and/or a contender consensus pick. I now actually moved up on the scoreboard! Never really doubted he'd QO. Certainly more of a 'behind the scenes' name, but he helped produce so many hit pop songs and was David Guetta's BFF, so I knew his death would get picked up somewhere.

    Did you miss the bits where we said we knew some of the other names only because they had been mentioned here? And no, I don't want to spend my time researching obscure people that nobody down the pub has heard of. I only pick people who are genuinely notable or interesting by my own standards. That's what dead pools used to be about.

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    I’m not entirely sure what compelled you guys to demonstrate your ignorance of fairly popular deathpool picks. Like I’m not claiming I know everyone mentioned, but if you read the threads or did any research you would know at least 75% of the names.
