My self-interest is him not dying.

 

Because that Poker Tourney leaderboard will take a hammering!

 

 

So, which one of us rings him to ask how he's doing?

You mean mildly positive for HIM

 

You've seen the tonnage of DDP jokers riding on this, right?

Has there ever been a deadpool in which someone got the full 100% hit rate? Apart from Advent Avalanche, MMMDP and the like...

Because whoever wants to get there has to resist picking people like Tom Smith - those who seem to be fucked by all accounts, yet persist, and die 1-3 years later.

The closest I can recall is Spade's 2016 DDP team which got 18/20.

 

If anyone can ever achieve the full house it'll be impressive to say the least.

I think if someone ever gets a 100% completion rate in a dead pool, it’ll be someone a bit flukey with their choices and not someone who puts in a ton of research tbh...

Or a really clever serial killer.

My grandmother's neighbor always said, that dying people often wait for special events to come like their birthday.

 

Tom, the finish line is crossed!

So Rotten Ali - once a frequent poster and a genuine dead pooling legend (I know, I perused his vast folders of statistical research about a decade back at a DLCon) - almost did the dead pooling equivalent of a four minute mile or clean sweep. He was so named because at the time the world's biggest dead pool was the Rotten Dead Pool in the USA and nobody had done the full ten out of ten in that. Ali landed nine in a calendar year before his tenth pick died a few weeks after his competition ended. 

 

Nobody ever did the ten out of ten in that pool and they had somewhere well above 10,000 people competing at any one time. Not sure anyone has done a complete slam on a team of ten or twenty hereabouts either.

Would love to hear from Ali, because what's happened with this Covid lark is pretty much what he predicted might happen with Ebola.

He's still alive and well.

And remains a dead pooling legend  - albeit a distant one these days
