Bit of a brain fart for me. I saw that June picture and made a memo on my phone to add him to the roster - only I forgot to do it...

 

I really should've went for him after all those "sorry to hear McCririck is very ill" tweets. I think the fact he responded to a few of the well wishes threw me off.

You know the world is crazy when the sometime fastest man in the world can't obit last year, and some official from Indonesia who happened to be a viral social media celeb obits in mere hours.

 

Anyway, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho gets his Daily Mail obit and that's not a disaster for several teams.

 

Updated Leaderboard to follow.

Right, so welcome to new entrants to the leaderboard Clorox Bleachman, RadGuy and defending Champ Death Impends.

 

Captain Chorizo hits a Joker and extends his lead. Amazingly, out of 4 hits, he's had 3 of them.

 

Bonuses: gcreptile makes a Pair of 9s - 10 Additional Points

Joey Russ makes a pair of 8s - 10 Additional Points.

 

Knowing when to convert your Joker if you have one, now becomes part of the game if you have more than one card, in order to perhaps make a bonus hand. Remember, conversion must take place during the game.

I should probably stop picking actors I like at random in this game, it's the kiss of bloody death!

Johnny's last Cleggs have fallen off and points are awarded all over the place - too many to mention! Welcome to the leaderboard to Great Uncle Bulgaria and Fixed Business. Yes, even after Clegg's death there are still teams on Norway points.

 

Bonuses:

 

Great Uncle Bulgaria's inaugural hit is A Spades (the A of Spades...) - 5 Additional Points.

Toast makes a pair of 7s - 10 Additional Points.

 

We have our first sub faller too. And it isn't Joey! Sir Creep gets lucky and draws the A Diamonds for 14 Points added to his total.

 

Leaderboard updated.

Aye, Y-Dub.  SirC picking up where he left off last year, knocking off his subs.  Did Joey have more sub hits than me?  Cuz I had a bunch.

Well I'll take the Subs Pyrrhic Victory Crown from you if possible. LOL.  I guess I had 3 hits in 2018 (my first year).  FTR I will keep running Renee Simonot as team captain until I get a hit from her on my bench.

Later entrants were glad they waited. Andrea Camilleri gets a BBC Obit and according no further investigation is needed for points awards.

 

Captain Chorizo pulls clear at the top, Death Impends and others manoeuvre into challenging positions.

Not a voyage to the bottom of the sea, but not a trip to the top of the tree.

 

I had David Hedison as a sub pick here. msc kindly picked a random card for me and that was the K Hearts, so I get 13 points added.

Essebsi becomes an Exssebsi and his death drops pointage for several players. Joey Russ and Death Impends move into podium places, while the Captain's lead is slashed.

 

Bonus: Death Impends gets a pair of 5s - 10 Additional Points.

 

Banana had Essebsi as a sub and draws the 6 Diamonds for 6 Points added.

Kevin Roster allowed??

 

I wanted a poker player and he was obvious choice but felt he didn't get close to the fame criteria. Pretty hard to find any link to Kevin Roster poker player before he had cancer.

 

If you google Kevin Roster Poker the only poker related hit on the first page is the Hendon Mob Poker site where he is ranked 38,951st and the 2019 WSOP winnings in Poker News which he is at as his dying thing to do. He's also described as a semi professional poker player in some articles about his cancer. I think I could class as a semi professional poker player.

 

His job was running a collectibles business and he -played a bit of poker and won hardly anything and he wasn't famous, then he got cancer??

 

Quote 'Prior to his cancer diagnosis, Roster was living the good life being a semi-professional poker player and running a profitable collectibles business with his wife. They have a son who is now nine years old.'

 

Sorry it's up to game runner but it seems if you try and make game runner's job easy and do a bit of their work for them then you are setting yourself up for Sir Creep to trample all over the rules.

BTW, Kevin Roster will die today.

Right, I thought it was the cup thread and not the poker thread. :blush:

13 hits and one non-obiter so far.

 

In comparison, only around 10 hits by the latter part of August in 2018.

 

Oh and happy birthday Daniel Negreanu - 45 today! :birthday:
