    The Nobel Prize Dead Pool 2022/2023

    As last year, the scoring will appear on a four digit base. The first digit will represent the category, sorted from least living laureates to most: Literature (19): 6.000 points Peace (32): 5.000 points Economic Scienes (44): 4.000 points Chemistry (63): 3.000 points Medicine/Physiology (70): 2.000 points Physics (72): 1.000 points The second digit will honor the decade, the laureate was awarded: 2020s – 900 points 2010s – 800 points 2000s – 700 points 1990s – 600 points 1980s – 500 points 1970s – 400 points 1960s – 300 points 1950s – 200 points There were no laureates left from the decades before, so a sore of 100 points is not possible! The third digit will show the age of your laureate: < 30 – 90 points. 30-39 – 80 points 40-49 – 70 points 50-59 – 60 points 60-69 – 50 points 70-79 – 40 points 80-89 – 30 points 90-99 – 20 points 100-??? – 10 points The last digit gives a bonus score: Last survivor of his awarding year: 9 points bonus. Youngest death of the contest: 8 points (awarded in February 2022!) Represents an African country: 7 points Represents an Asian country: 6 points A female laureate: 5 points. Awarded alone (organizations excluded): 4 points Represents a South or Middle American country: 3 points Comes from Germany (born there or naturalized): 2 points Oldest death of the contest: 1 point (awarded in February 2023!) So for example: F. W. de Klerk, currently the last laureate to die, was worth 5.637 points. 5.000 as a Peace laureate, 600 for the decade (he was awarded in 1993), 30 for his age (85), and seven bonus points for a person of African origin.
  5. Welcome to the first Deathlist-competition dedicated to Nobel laureates: The Nobel Prize Dead Pool Since the inaugural contest 2021 was a bit shorter, I will start this one early enough. The nomination period opens on December 1st, 2021 and ends on January 31st, 2022. The rules are still easy: Pick one living Nobel laureate by each category (Physics, Chemistry, Medicine/Physiology/Peace/Literature and Economic Sciences), who you think will die during the following next twelve months. This will make six nominated people. Send your list between December 1st and January 31st! My remaining rule: No laureate can be chosen twice, so check who was picked by other deadpoolers! Two New rules for this year: 1. In case, one of your laureates dies, replace him/her by a person from the same category. This will give you the chance to score twice in a category. 2. I will be the last to choose my picks – to avoid discrepancies for the other contestants! Every laureate who dies in December or January will be excluded automatically and should be replaced in case of being chosen. People, who accepted the award on behalf of someone or represent an organization are excluded from the contest, the 2022 laureates cannot be chosen since they are unknown until October! The Nobel Prize Dead Pool will start from February 1st, the day the nomination period for new laureates ends. The last day to score a hit will be January 31st, 2023! All main sources will be accepted as well as the official Nobel Prize website www.nobelprize.org. (The deaths will be mentioned there, so no lost hits to expect!) Since not so many Nobel laureates die during a year - 2017, 2019 and 2020 it had been 9 dead laureates per year, 2018 there were 18, in 2021 so far 11 (So do not expect a rushing contest!) – the scoring will honor every hit separately. So good luck and enjoy the contest.

    The Nobel Prize Dead Pool

    Frederik Willem de Klerk, last president of South Africa during Apartheid and 1993 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, has died aged 85: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-59247115 He was the first Peace Prize laureate to die in 2021 - I expected Desmond Tutu or Mikhail Gorbatshov - and was worth 5.637 points (as African octogenarian Peace laureate from the 1990s). During my calculations, in was unsure whether he was even nominated, only to find out that he was my own candidate. This now puts my own competition in a damned bad light, since I'm now leading the field: 1. @WEP - 5.637 points 2. @Salmon Mousse - 3.836 points 3. @Bibliogryphon - 3.634 points 4. @MariNisia - 2.161 points 5. @TomTomTelekom - 1.826 points 6. @arghton / @Book / @chilean way / @frleon - 0 points But only one hit can change the situation. The contest still goes on until January 31st, the last day, that new laureates can be nominated - for the 2022 Nobel Prizes and the new Nobel Prize Contest 2022/2023!
