The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2020

Recommended Posts

Let's get the popular pick out of the way.

 

Nick Cordero was legless and now he's breathless. Hits for Joey Russ, Sean, The Old Crem, Clorox Bleachman and Grim Up North. No bonuses.

 

Cordero was also a sub and the following happened:

 

msc drew Q Spades - 12 Points added.

gcreptile drew A Diamonds - 14 Points added

Banana drew J Clubs - 11 Points added.

An Fear Beag drew 5 Diamonds - 5 Points added.

Now let's get the popular joke out of the way. Ennio Morricone is now decomposing. I hope he has Leone-d his lesson!

 

Anyway, a unique pick for me, your Casino Manager, who clambers onto the leaderboard.

 

Which is updated. And will be brought forward on the next hit.

We are all waiting for Mark Naley to obit. Unlikely now, but keep your eyes peeled.

 

Meanwhile, Yorkshire Banker moves into the lead with a unique hit with Johnny Beattie. No bonuses, leaderboard as above.

Judy Dyble has gone to the great Convention in the sky.

 

A unique for Joey Russ, he also hits an A for 5 additional points. And takes the lead.

Dancer extraordinaire Zizi Jeanmaire has pas-sed de once and but there's only spades and a Joker, no diamonds, on the table.

 

DeathByArsenic enters the leaderboard with a first hit. Bibliogryphon leaps into a podium place, having persisted with Zizi for some years and it has paid off, hitting his Red Joker for an additional 50 Points.

 

Leaderboard updated.

America lost its head in the 2016 election, now it has lost its conscience. And John Lewis was picked by … practically everyone, those who didn't, you know who you are.

 

We shall still be playing Where Do You Go To My Lovely over the loudspeakers in honour of Zizi Jeanmaire, as we are not overtly political, but those who want a burst of We Shall Overcome may adjourn to our newly installed Escape Rooms to listen to it on a loop until you escape!

 

Anyway, enough of the preamble, Joey Russ remains on top with 4 hits, and markb4 joins those of us on the leaderboard with his first hit.

 

The following bonuses were awarded:

 

markb4 hits an A - 5 Additional Points.

theoldlady hits a Red Joker and receives the 50 Point Joker bonus. Coincidentally, she is now on the same points as Bibliogryphon, and has played the same cards as him, although with completely different hits. Spooky!

Clorox Bleachman makes a pair of Js - 10 Additional Points.

 

Leaderboard updated.

Would it be possible to move the leaderboard to the first page of this thread for easier access?

Not really. If you look at the Masterlist, there's a link that takes you directly to the leaderboard anyway.

 

I try and move the leaderboard to a new page as soon as possible so it's always on the last current page of the thread.

Lone Dybkjaer (Danish MP plus wife of the former Prime Minister, sort of Danish Cherie Blair if she won a seat) has been told her treatment doesn't work so if she sees 2021 it'll be an impressive feat.

 

Lone Dybkjaer dead at 80.

Oh, I know, I just posted it up on the Foreign Johnnies thread.

 

Obit awaited. Probably forever, perhaps not so long....

I expect an obit given her role but who knows this year. If wrong, best here than in the DDP!

Kerching, Tory donor Stuart Wheeler's death provides points for me, DI, Joey and Sean.

Oi!

 

I'm busy doing the history of UK Chart Singles!

 

Actually, I went off for a sandwich, came back on and saw he was dead. I'll update shortly.

We are waiting on a Lone Danish politician to obit, but while we do...

 

Tory activist Stuart Wheeler is dead. So a Wheeler keeps the Dealer busy! Hits for 4 players as outlined by msc.

 

Joey Russ hits an A and gains 5 Additional Points, but also makes a pair of As for 10 Additional Points - Total Additional Points = 15.

 

msc and Sean queue up into the podium places, behind Joey who is still waiting on a Mark Naley obit too. Was Joey applying a crystal ball before the Casino opened?

I literally made my team in about 15 minutes, so if I somehow end up winning I’d be stunned really. :lol:

Been the bridesmaid too often, Joey, about time.

 

However, I'm training the security cameras on your seat....:lol:

Amazingly Bo'ness' most famous player David Hagen has taken the final penalty.

 

Hits for Joey Russ, msc, Death Impends; gcreptile; Captain Chorizo; Banana and Grim Up North.

 

Bonuses:

 

gcreptile hits a pair of 9s - 10 Additional Points.

Captain Chorizo gets his Black Joker for 50 Additional Points.

Grim Up North hits an A - 5 Additional Points.

Olivia de Havilland has drunk from the Fontaine of Youth for the last time.

 

Hits for The Quim Reaper and Miracle Aligner, who join the leaderboard for the first time, and also The Old Crem and Banana. No Bonuses.

 

She was also a sub for a few players, and the following happened:

 

markb4 hit 6 Diamonds - 6 Points added.

Grim Up North hit 9 Clubs - 9 Points added.

Death Impends hit 2 Hearts - 2 Points added.

 

This means the leaderboard is becoming clustered just outside the podium - and July isn't even out.

I believe John Saxon is a sub hit for Gooseberry Crumble.

You are correct, thanks. Been nice if even GC had noticed!

While we wait for Sydney Lotterby's QO, some old Taiwanese politician was a hit for...several.

 

Bonuses:

 

Banana makes a pair of 5s - 10 Additional Points.

Death Impends makes a pair of 10s - 10 Additional Points.

 

Yet another hit for Joey Russ, who maintains an astonishing lead, but the big beasts of the Poker Tourney Death Impends and Captain Chorizo are nestled in the bushes in the podium places, ready to spring.
