The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2021

Recommended Posts

Time once again for those doors of the Casino to creak open!

 

Only they are not. The staff are all on furlough and all the generous facilities are closed. Yes, due the COVID restrictions, this time it's virtual baby! 

 

In between sanitising the public areas and vaccinating the pet tigers (yes, I know you were all hoping to visit the new petting zoo!) I shall be running the operations from the manager's desk and somehow receiving and answering the emails and texts to the helpdesk.

 

Remember, you simply don't have to know how to play, it's all essentially calculated out for you, so you don't have to! In fact, I'd probably be out of a job if someone did know how to play this game! Just follow the rules below, enter and watch those sweet points roll in over the next few months. You don't even have to be playing with a full deck!

 

Couple of Points Of Order in advance:

 

1. It's still a 6 month game. I don't really have the time or inclination to move this on plus the calculations would be become outrageously complex. I can think about this in the future, but for now the period sticks.

 

2. Only members of the Forum whose name was registered on or before 1 January 2021 may enter. This avoids the need for me to calculate scores for former members now banned setting up temp accounts to enter and people who have joined since who may end up after a short period that the Forum is not for them and disappear.

 

So, with that out of the way, those who are eligible can PM teams to me before the deadline and we can go some way to heal the wounds obtained in the Deathlist Cup! Have fun!

The Rules. Fedor Holz look stern enough to enforce them, he's got the eyewear to stare!

 

Poker Hand of the Week: de Silva Flays Fedor on Gruesome Board

 

You pick 25 names. That's it. Then the game runner allocates a playing card from Random.org to each of your picks in the order you list them. If your pick dies within the period of the game you gain 100 points.

 

Bonuses are awarded for poker hands as follows:

 

High Card (i.e. an Ace) - 5 Points

Pair (Two cards of same value) - 10 Points

Two Pair (Two Cards of same value plus two cards of a separate value) - 15 Points

Three of a Kind (Three of same value) - 20 Points

Straight (5 Cards of any suit forming a sequence e.g. 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) - 30 Points

Flush (5 Cards of any value of the same suit) - 40 Points

Full House (Three cards of the same value, and two of another value) - 80 Points

Four of a Kind (Four cards of the same value) - 100 Points

Straight Flush including a Royal Flush (Five cards forming a sequence of the same suit) - 150 points.

 

Bonuses are cumulative. So say early on you gain say, a pair. If you subsequently gain another pair you would get the bonus for the second pair (10 points) plus the bonus for two pair (15 Points). If you made a straight, say 5-6-7-8-9, then hit a sixth death with a 10 allocated, you would gain an additional straight bonus for 6-7-8-9-10.

 

Winner has the most points at the end of the game. DDP Obit rules in force from time to time would apply. No Jokers or Uniques rules. I am including one Black Joker and one Red Joker in the possible cards you can draw. If you draw such a card in your main team, you will receive 50 Additional Bonus Points for the hit if your pick dies. You are able to nominate at any time during the game a card THAT YOU HAVE NOT DRAWN FOR ANY OTHER PICK as a substitute for a Joker, whose pick has died. You will still receive 50 points for a Joker in any event, but you can then use your substitute nominated card to make straights or flushes for example (you still need to have your Joker Pick die for it to count). Once you have nominated the substitute card, you cannot change the nomination again - only one substitute card per Joker. You must play your Joker, if you have a hit with one, by the end of St Andrews Day (30 November 2021). If you hit with a Joker after 30 November, you have 2 days or up until 31 December 2021 (whichever is earlier), to nominate your substitute card.

 

Only persons notable in their own right, famous for a contribution of some kind are allowed. They must be aged 18 and over on or before 30 June 2021 and human. Members of the Illuminati considered reptilian will be deemed to be human for the purposes of this game.

 

Entries must be received and validated by me by 11:59 pm (BST) on 30 June 2021.

 

The bonuses are so valuable and cumulative that FFBI picks and persons with reflected fame only (PRF) will be excluded. FFBI and PRF are in the opinion of the game runner. The FFBI rule basically excludes anyone famous or infamous for their illness or anything consequential to their illness. This therefore in general excludes campaigners, fundraisers, bloggers, authors of books on their illness and the like. So for example Deborah James is excluded, despite being a BBC presenter as she only seems to have got the job as a result of her cancer. PRF excludes family members, hangers on and the like who in the opinion of the game runner has fame as a result of someone else's fame, but does not exclude such persons if they have a claim to fame themselves separate and distinct from any additional reflected fame (for example, the murderer of a famous person would not fall foul of the PRF rule). Consideration will be given on a case by case basis, but competitors are actively discouraged from giving the game runner a hard time! Do not actively seek loopholes! If one is found, the game runner will be sole arbiter.

 

Death row inmates or anyone under sentence of death whether at the start of the game or for its duration are excluded completely. With regard to terrorists of any hue, confirmation in a qualifying obit of their death by the terrorist organisation to which they belong will suffice. The Strickland/Lucan Rule excludes anyone missing as at the start of the game, or anyone  who might be dead and who is officially declared to be dead during the game by judicial or other authority under presumption of death laws. For the avoidance of doubt, someone who famous simply for their longevity (e.g. supercentenarian, oldest person in a country) is included, but they must still obviously garner a qualifying obit.

 

At the end of each month, all players will be invited over to the Card Roulette Table. As host I will draw an equivalent number of cards from Random.org IN ONE GO from one pack to the number of teams participating. That draw will be posted on the thread and players will receive a number of points based on their position in the field. For example, I will always get the first card, as my team shall be first to be posted, second team in gets card 2 and so on. The value attributed to each card will be the same as those for a substitute outlined below (Ace high = 14 points, King = 13 points, etc etc down to a deuce = 2 Points). So if there are 30 teams, 30 cards are drawn and allocated, so your timing of putting your team in may be crucial.

 

The game will open on 1 July 2021 and deaths on 1 July according to official sources up to and including 31 December 2021 will count. Therefore a pick who is subsequently found to have died before commencement but after the game has started is excluded and a substitute will be inserted in place of that person (if a sub has been provided by the player). The game will be terminated at midnight on the turn between 5/6 January 2022, to allow time for news of death to be published (the Dietz-Werner Steck rule).

 

It is recommended that you consider up to 5 substitutes along with your team. If a substitute dies without making it into your main team for any reason,  the game runner will draw a card from Random.org on being notified of their death and gaining a qualifying obit and you will gain additional points equivalent to the value of that card (Ace high = 14 points, King = 13 points, etc etc down to a deuce = 2 Points). Your sub card will not count towards bonuses however, and it does not gain the 100 point death award.

 

The game runner will be allowed to enter a team. That team will be published in the thread at commencement of opening entries, but to avoid influence (the Toast Rule) an x will represent a letter of the person's name, but the cards allocated will be revealed, for example:

 

XXX XXXXXXXXXXX - 5 Spades would be revealed at the start of the game as

Roy Barraclough - 5 Spades.

 

Good Luck!

Well, 'll try to remember to send reminders, what with the Euros, vaccines, days out in the pub etc etc! ;)

 

I'm surprised nobody has gone for a theme team here. I mean if folk have been relatively unsuccessful, there's no harm in having a bit of fun. So, you could have Jim Carrey (Ace Ventura), Queen Latifah, any director of MasterCARD, you know the sort of thing. Of course the danger is your portrait goes up in the loos...reminds me, I must bring them indoors this year....

I have submitted, good luck to everyone!

 

I doubt I have the time to find more names in the next 5 days - so I had to submit early. Some of the names are on my current Cup team, so you know, there's still time to lose a few names.

I equate trying to find who members of your team are like walking across no man's land in WWI, and once again I have not been disappointed!

 

However, there are a couple of landmines in there which have blown up and need replacing.

Aha, someone has been good enough to use the helpdesk, before submitting their team. 

 

Nods have been given, it's good to know the manager is wanted, ha!

 

As said before, time is short to enter and waiting on some favourite entrants before time runs out.

Right, just over 24 hours til entries close.

 

Remember teams must be approved before the deadline, just in case of ruling outs, last minute deaths and subs required etc.

We have several former players missing in action.

 

Now while this is amazing news for those playing and wishing to improve their positions on previous years, it would be a shame to lose some loyal customers. And not to gain some new ones. Shove a team in, why don't you?
