    I had Maria Giuseppa Robucci, sorry for not posting it.

    The 7th Death of 2019

    He turns 96 on Monday and looks awful in this recent video. There are some articles blocked by GDPR. I think they're to do with him receiving honours but not being able to accept them in person.

    Last but not least, I updated the list of longest surviving picks on Page 6. There are 18 fresh cadavers and a title change - Charles Aznavour, originally a 1990 alumnus, was the 10th hit of 2018. All three threads are rolling from now on. Promise I won't bump this thread for a wee while

    @Predictor asked a while back who had received the most votes across all the "nth death of 20xx" polls. Well, here's the answer. Brackers is our strongest survivor, and with a bit of luck she could be the GOAT. She's beaten Kirk in under 3 years! 174 poll results went into this. This is the very first one, which Ronnie Biggs won easily. In 2005.

    It's been a while since I made an all-out Aspergian kind of list, so have this. The dates of birth of every DL50er. I'll tidy it up later, but there's more to come...

    Would Dick Van Dyke score points for alliteration, or would the V be counted?

    The Joker's Dead Pool 2019

    Hah, it's all good. No offence taken. I've been told that my write-ups haven't broken down bonuses like Joey's. There are 3 reasons for this: 1. I'm an eejit and didn't notice this earlier 2. I prefer rounding up a series of hits to isolating one 3. This allows me to be more consistent with my updates than the previous host was. By doing this I'm not able to cover as much information. This may not be the most exciting way of doing it, but I'm going with it for now. Crucially, entrants are given the same amount of details before the deadline as they were last year, so it's not 'harder' to pick a team. And lastly, please don't be afraid of voicing your concerns, folks.

    Good point actually. Maybe next year it'll be done more like Hartlepool, but we'll see. By December it will be clear what I should change.

    Not this year. The majority of bonuses are random - to give an example from last year, bass players were worth an extra 2 points. I will say that the easiest way of scoring points is by selecting unique/D40 picks (as the first post explains). Since this my first time running anything, I am sticking to Joey's style of hosting over the past 2 years. Removing the element of secrecy would make it a different game. That's not what was asked of me.

    You chose Chapman as a WC after Fatima Ali died. Chapman and Sutopo both carried small penalties and you didn't hit enough bonuses to counteract them. Believe it or not, you scored 0 points both times round. Near the end I'll get someone to adjudicate the scores, however all my calculations seem to be right so far.

    The Joker's Dead Pool 2019

    UPDATE 4 1 2 3 Hits/Misses Dr. John | 5th June | 1 team Pat Bowlen | 13th June | 3 teams Beth Chapman | 26th June | 13 teams John McCririck | 5th July | 15 teams Sutopo Purwo Nugroho | 7th July | 7 teams Freddie Jones | 9th July | no teams Dr. John was a musician, in case you didn't know, and it was this fact which meant he qualified for my team. The team with the longest names taking the longest to score. Fitting. The month which followed saw a few heavy hitters go. After three teams touched down with Pat Bowlen, reality TV star Beth Chapman bailed out a further thirteen (including 2 Wildcards). 15 teams made a bet that John McCririck wouldn't see another Summer. They were wrong, but the host is so generous that he awarded points anyway. Sutopo Purwo Nugroho's death caused a seismic shift in the leaderboard, whilst actor Freddie Jones was a miss. Msc loses his title to The Mad Hatter. He is also threatened by our dark horse, theoldlady. Death Impends clings to the Top 5 despite being the only non-scorer this time. Gooseberry Crumble once again shines with just one hit. Press F to pay respects to Skinny kiltrunner. 2 Wildcards scoring a grand total of... zero Scores in full: 1. The Mad Hatter - 57 2. msc - 50 3. theoldlady - 47 4. CaptainChorizo - 44 5. Death Impends - 43 6. Joey Russ - 42 7. An Fear Beag - 41 8. Sir Creep - 38 =9. Book - 37 =9. FixedBusiness - 37 11. Gooseberry Crumble - 35 12. The Old Crem - 34 13. Pedro67 - 32 14. Bibliogryphon - 30 15. Banana - 29 16. The Unknown Man - 25 17. RadGuy - 24 18. Skinny kiltrunner - 23 19. YoungWillz - 20 20.
