Looks like Tommy DeVito died last night:  https://www.njarts.net/pop-rock/covid-19-claims-life-of-original-four-seasons-member-tommy-devito-92/

 

So too late for this round.

... and less than a year later Nobel laureate Arthur Askin (wiki) has died aged 98.

That obituary went up 5 days ago. How on earth did nobody spot it? His Wiki page was only updated a few hours ago.

If this is correct, that invalidates WEP's pick of Ashkin.

This makes 1922 my unlucky year, since a pick is invalid a second tine in a row  .

 

I have crossed Ashkin out and  accept the lost pick.

What about Betty White?


Me and  @Bibliogryphon chose her simultaneously, I think.

The first one will get her. The second has to look for another 22-born lady who isn't picked in this round.

I’m struggling to understand why WEP’s pick is not valid

Because Ashkin's death was announced before WEP picked him, meaning that there's a remote chance the player could have learnt of his death before entering the individual in the game.

It's discounted as a means of total fairness to other players.

Ok understood, thanks Ulitzer95 for the explanation, unlucky WEP, better luck and fortune in the next round

Well, plus there was an intervening death and there's been no QO posted on the thread.

 

It's happened to all of us at some point.
