The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2019

Recommended Posts

The Deathlist Cup is overrunning and punters are still round the bookies looking up at the screens to see which team will win. So while everyone is distracted and not paying attention, I'm throwing open the doors of the Deathlist Casino for the Third Annual Poker Tournament!

 

Will Joey Russ attain greatness, or will most of his hits come from his subs bench - again? Who can stop Death Impends making it a total hat trick and take the title for the third year in a row? Just pick 25 names (and a maximum of 5 subs) who will cash in their chips on or before December 31st. There is a new rule to add to the fun! Yes...fun.....!!!

 

The tables are being brushed down, the croupiers are back (on the minimum wage, obviously), the chips are pristine and the packs will be broken open come July 1st. So get your thinking caps on and join the gamblers at the table!

The Rules. Phil Ivey is giving you the thousand yard stare if you give the Gamerunner a hard time:

 

Phil+Ivey+MasterClass+Review.jpg

 

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. NEW RULE: 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, whether you have had a hit with that pick or not. 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.

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 2019 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 2019.

 

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 is included, but they must still obviously garner a qualifying obit.

 

The game will open on 1 July 2019 and deaths on 1 July according to official sources up to and including 31 December 2019 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 7/8 January 2020, 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!

Edited the rules to make it clear that if you get a Joker hit, you get 100 Points for the hit and 50 Additional Points for the Joker.

 

Any questions, just ask. And we are open!

Yeah, can you make sure most of my hits come from my actual 25 rather than the subs bench? :D

My impartiality forbids me from engineering the death order, ha ha!

 

I think I suggested before that you pick your 25 and 5 Subs, then take 5 from your main team, make them the subs and your original subs get promoted to the main team. That might work this year...might not! :lol:

Plus if I paid them more they might get a cocaine habit, like Gove and Johnson....:lol:

 

Essentially I'm doing them a favour.

Can't hurt to give this another go.  Like Joey, my bench was calling undertakers more than my main team, so it seemed at times.

Things are taking shape and there's a remarkable amount of consensus about certain picks.

 

So far, myself, BiblioG, msc and theoldlady have had teams verified and submitted. @YorkshireBanker, check your inbox please and update your team so that can be done before the end of the month.

 

I'm a bit busy with the house at the moment, so sometimes I'll be off for ages at a time, but checking every day.

All teams with queries against them have recalibrated.

 

Time marches on, remember to get your teams in so they can be validated, if you are considering joining the fun.

 

I've had a query and I think it would be helpful to point out that I'm not accepting 9/11 responders. John Doe works for the fire department and nobody ever hears of him until he turns up with cancer 17 years later. Really looking for bigger names from that time than someone doing their job. Hope this helps.

Just posting here to remind myself to enter this game in a couple days. I never do very well, but hopefully I can change that this year.

 

Oh, right, and DBN transfers are coming up soon. Not used to be doing so much deadpooling stuff in the dog days of summer! :burn:
