The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2019

Recommended Posts

Poetic that even in a pool without any suicide bonus, Vervoort is still a pointsapalooza.

Well, technically it's never the death of an individual which grants the bonuses, it's the combination of cards drawn. gcreptile was essentially sitting on three pairs so drawing any additional card of any one of those pairs would make a huge bonus.

 

It should be noted that if certain folk were to cash in their joker, bonuses will flow like milk and honey as well.

First I thought I had drawn a crappy deck, with no Aces, for example.

 

But actually, because my deck is very clumped in a few types, this bonus accumulation will increase in intensity.

For example, if I get a hit with Chris Doleman now, who is a 9, I get another pair of nines, and all the bonuses I already got through the 7s and Js through Marieke, plus another pair of nines, and a triple 9 - but yes, also a full house of 9s and Js, and actually TWO full houses with the 9s and 7s, one is two 7s and 3 9s, and one is three 7s and 2 9s. I will then have three 7s and three 9s...which means, actually.... it would be two DIFFERENT full houses of three 7s and two 9s (because with three 9s there are two possibilities of two 9s), and then two DIFFERENT full houses of two 7s and three 9s.

 

So yeah, Chris Doleman results in.... five (?) full houses.

 

Well... total mayhem would come if I had a chance to get 4 of a kind, but the Randy Romero non-obit killed that.

What are the chances with Chris Doleman. He was off my radar until a player picked him as a widcard in my work game but at the moment he could be the decider if he were to go in 2019

He's been wheelchair bound for pretty much the whole year and has outlived the usual life expectancy for glioblastoma. Actually still makes public appearances sometimes, but with that illness for so long he's the type of name where it wouldn't be a surprise at all if he went tomorrow.

He's a big name American sports star, apparently. And he has had terminal glioblastoma since sometime last year so if he makes it to 2020 he'll have done very well indeed (and will probably be on enough teams to make the Drop 40 bonus).

There's been a murder in relation to the points scoring with Ivan Milat's death. Several teams had him in their backpack, and as can be seen from the above; a massive change at the top.

 

Bonuses:

 

msc hits A Clubs - 5 Points; Pair of As - 10 Points - Total: 15 Additional Points.

 

Grim Up North hits 4 Clubs - Pair of 4s - 10 Points; Two Pair (4s and Qs) - 15 Points; Two Pair (4s and 9s) - 15 Points - Total: 40 Additional Points.

 

Death Impends hits 3 Diamonds - Pair of 3s - 10 Points; Two Pair (3s and 7s) - 15 Points; Two Pair (3s and 5s [5 Spades and Diamonds]) - 15 Points; Two Pair (3s and 5s [5 Spades and Clubs]) - 15 Points; Two Pair (3s and 5s [5 Diamonds and Clubs]) - 15 Points; Full House (5s over 3s) - 80 Points - Total: 150 Additional Points.

 

Clorox Bleachman hits the A Spades - 5 Points; Straight (A, 2, 3, 4, 5 with 5 Diamonds) - 30 Points; Straight (A, 2, 3, 4, 5 with 5 Spades) - 30 Points - Total: 65 Additional Points.

 

Sir Creep hits A Diamonds - 5 Points; Pair of As - 10 Points; Two Pair (As and 8s) - 15 Points - Total: 30 Additional Points.

 

Captain Chorizo hits 7 Hearts - Pair 7s with 7 Clubs - 10 Points; Pair 7s with 7 Diamonds - 10 Points; Two Pair (7s and 4s with 7 Clubs) - 15 Points; Two Pair (7s and 4s with 7 Diamonds) - 15 Points; Three of a Kind (7s) - 20 Points; Straight (6, 7, 8, 9, 10 with 7 Hearts) - 30 Points; Flush (6, 7, 8, 9, 10 of Hearts) - 40 Points; Full House (7s over 4s) - 80 Points; Straight Flush (6, 7, 8, 9, 10 Hearts) - 150 Points - Total: 370 Additional Points.

 

So Captain Chorizo now takes the lead with the highest set of bonuses so far, with gcreptile and Death Impends on the podium but with a bit of ground to make up.

Death spotter picks talent spotter. A glass of Banana wine, as John Fordham dies of cancer.

Been quiet of late round the tables, but now Clive James has been Rounded With A (Big) Sleep.

 

Several players had him on their list, including yours truly.

 

Bonuses:

 

Fixed Business hits a Red Joker - 50 Additional Points and possible conversion in due course.

 

The Old Crem hits J Spades - Pair Js - 10 Points.; Two Pair (Js and 2s) - 15 Points - Total - 25 Additional Points.

 

Joey Russ hits 6 Clubs - Pair 6s - 10 Points; Two Pair (6s and 8s) - 15 Points; Straight (4, 5, 6, 7, 8 with 8 Clubs) - 30 Points; Straight (4, 5, 6, 7, 8 with 8 Diamonds) - 30 Points - Total - 85 Additional Points.

 

Clorox Bleachman hits 5 Hearts - Pair (with 5 Spades) - 10 Points; Pair (with 5 Diamonds) - 10 Points; Three Of A Kind (5s) - 20 Points; Straight (2, 3, 4, 5, 6) - 30 Points; Straight (3, 4, 5, 6, 7) - 30 Points; Flush (2, 4, 5, 6, Q Hearts) - 40 Points - Total - 140 Additional Points.

 

Sean hits 6 Spades - Pair 6s - 10 Points.

 

Captain Chorizo hits 3 Hearts - Flush (3, 6, 7, 8, 9 Hearts) - 40 Points; Flush (3, 6, 7, 8, 10 Hearts) - 40 Points; Flush (3, 7, 8, 9, 10 Hearts) - 40 Points; Flush (3, 6, 8, 9, 10 Hearts) - 40 Points; (3, 6, 7, 9, 10 Hearts) - 40 Points - Total - 200 Additional Points.

 

With that, Captain Chorizo hits 2000 Points, extending his lead and breaking all the previous records. Clorox Bleachman moves into second and Joey Russ sits on the third place podium.

3 players saw former Fed Reserve bod Volcker as low hanging fruit. As a result, Death Impends, gcreptile and Joey Russ have some interest to add to this pool!

 

However, the bonuses only go to Joey Russ who hits 8 Spades and as a result his bonuses are as follows:

 

Pair of 8s (Spades and Clubs) - 10 Points; Pair of 8s (Spades and Diamonds) - 10 Points; Two Pair - (8s Spades and Clubs and 6s) - 15 Points; Two Pair - (8s Spades and Diamonds) - 15 Points; Three of a Kind (8s) - 20 Points; Straight (4, 5, 6 Spades; 7, 8) - 30 Points; Straight (4, 5, 6 Clubs, 7, 8) - 30 Points; Flush (6, 7, 8, 10, K Spades) - 40 Points; Full House (8s over 6s) - 80 Points.

 

That's a total of 250 Additional Points and projects him into second, behind Captain Chorizo whose lead is now not looking so secure. gcreptile now sits in third, with a tiny lead over Clorox Bleachman and Death Impends who are tied for fourth.

 

One turn of one card could now change everything. All to play for then.
