ABC Deadpool VI: 2022-2023 season
Wormfarmer posted a topic in Dead PoolsHello, and welcome to the thread for the 6th running of the ABC Deadpool! 26 entries received, all in the table a couple of posts below this. Scoring will be more abbreviated this year. Instead of a mass of text, I will just list the hits, followed by each player who gains points from that hit, followed by a master standings table. You should be able to check your hits and my math fairly straightforwardly that way. And with that let's begin the scoring . . . . . We had two picks die the day before the game started: Pat Carroll and Nichelle Nichols. I allowed replacements within the first week and most players took advantage immediately to fill the empty spaces. However msc will ride with an empty spot at N and Guy From Future will go with no hope at C. Sorry you end up with (minor) penalties for having great picks that just couldn't wait for the game to start . . .

Kudos to gcreptile for the Bill Turnbull solo . . . I expected many more to pick that one. And of course for the huge week in which he gains 3 hits and skips straight to the top of the leaderboard! Two new teams on the board, and another surprise to me - The Queen was also a solo, for Yvonne. Sometimes the obvious picks are too obvious and worth trying for the solo points! Another example of the above strategy . . . Loretta Lynn goes as an old, infirm, alliterative solo! I cannot for the life of me recall why I gave up on Loretta after having her on my list for years. Ouch. Nicely done Stuart. For the leaderboard, wannamaker makes the huge jump into 3rd, HDS is all of a sudden in second (all he needed was to have his 2022-23 posted rather than his 2021 list), and Stuart Beck jumps from obscurity to middle of the list in one hit. gcreptile continues to lead for now . . . . . Correction made (per theoldladys sharp eyes) to scores for Angela Lansbury from 1 pt to 2 pts for each player ........ Big moves made for baby blue (tie for 2nd) and wormfarmer (tie for 4th). Good plays/Bad plays: I have to hand it to WEP for submitting a list of 100% alliteratives. A very profitable strategy as long as they die during the next 12 months. STANDINGS: Wormfarmer - 46 (+5?) Perhaps - 42 Banana - 36 Joey Russ - 34 gcreptile - 33 HDS - 31 wannamaker - 30 Death Impends - 29 (+5?) msc - 28 Book - 27 Baby Blue - 27 Captain Chorizo - 23 Yvonne - 22 theoldlady - 22 Great Uncle Bulgaria - 21 MariNisia - 21 Grimgrass - 16 Hell - 16 Toast - 16 WEP - 15 bibliogryphon - 14 Joe Moneypenny - 11 Funeralopolis - 8 Stuart Beck - 6 Yorkshire Banker - 4 Perhaps gets a nice solo for 6 points and narrows the gap on leader Wormfarmer . . . . . . That dam I was expecting has started to go, with 6 more hits to add in a very short period of time. Three of them were on wormfarmers' list (Hey, that's ME!) so he/me makes a huge 14 point jump and ends Perhaps' brief stay as the leader. Also doing well this update is Joey Russ, who got 2 hits including a big solo with crooner Bobby Caldwell, which pulls him up to 4th place. He got that pick in well before Caldwell was on my radar, so as I always suspected, he's well connected. Yorkshire Banker gets the Quant hit at Q and leaves Guy From Future as the last entry not yet on the scoreboard. Note to self: there needs to be some kind of bonus for that! If a number occurs in parenthesis after your score, that reflects a hit without a QO yet.
