    From what I've seen on t'internet, I understand he had some form of cancer. Still, 83 is a good age, outlived Del Shannon by thirty years. I see from his Wiki he also played keyboards on Brian Hyland's April 1971 UK #42, Gypsy Woman. No getting away from it, though, Runaway is probably one of the best enduring choons ever.

    The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2020

    It's maybe also worth pointing out at this stage that Bibliogryphon now has more points this year than he did at the end of last year's competition! Could this be his year?

    The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2020

    So I nip away for a few hours relaxation and it seems like Weekes. Yes, the Poker Tourney scores it's first ever first day double with the death of a cricketing legend, Everton Weekes. So we not only have Yorkshire Banker in the lead now playing his Red Joker already, at the other end we have our first Sub faller - for Sean. Yorkshire Banker picks up the 50 Point bonus for a Joker hit. Sean draws Q Spades for 12 Points. Bibliogryphon hits an A and gets an additional 5 Points. Other scorer was Joe Moneypenny who joins the leaderboard. Leaderboard updated.

    Fixed. Tim Bilton scraped though on his Great British Menu appearance. You are only properly famous if you've been on a TV cooking show....

    The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2020

    Well we are under way with an immediate hit as Georg Ratzinger, world renowned Choir Director and priest has died today. Apparently he has some sort of famous brother too... A start that @maryportfuncity would kill for in the Deathrace and the MMMDP! There isn't an "Everybody Else" on the leaderboard as the monthly draw will happen at the end of the month which should ensure we have a full complement of players on the board by then. Yee Hah!

    The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2020

    Indeed the fastest start, beating the inaugural year's kick off with Smith Hart on 2 July, last year's Christopher Brooker on 3 July and the disappointing 2018 Giuseppina Projetto on 6 July.

    Georg Ratzinger does not seem to have been picked this year. I can find him picked as long ago as 2006, so List of the Missed: http://www.derbydeadpool.co.uk/deadpool2006/teams.html#DDPTeamabovea

    Technically he seems to have died in May if that article is from June.

    Masterlist is up. 26 Players are sitting down with their cards at the ready. I wish everyone and especially me the best of luck! Captain Chorizo's defence of his title begins!

    The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2020

    Just the masterlist. I enter the names manually first (this acts as a second check to see if there are duplications) then the cards allocated. It's quite a job actually, but when it is done it is a magnificent opus to behold. Shouldn't be long, I'm on the last team now.

    There will be a short delay in posting the teams. 5 folk barged towards the entrance at the last minute! And very welcome they are!
