The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2020

Recommended Posts

Welcome one and all to the fourth annual Poker Tournament!

 

Once again, we throw the doors open to the Casino, situated precariously on a cliff's edge, below a high water dam, just beyond the forest. Sauna facilities provided free for the weary waits between hits!

 

I'll say again, you don't need to know how to play poker or even be interested in cards - just know that you will be well catered for and looked after during your 6 month incarceration in the palace of pleasure! And there is a new addition to the rules just to keep you interested, and which will ensure nobody walks away with zero points! (Not that it has ever happened, but I will not have a first time!)

 

So come on in! If you are not in it, you don't win it! It's the most random, most exciting and easily played Deadpool opening on 1st July!

 

Your humble servant.

Working on my list and should have it in your inbox in a matter of days!

May the combination of lady luck, the all important cards and the enema make for a fantastic pool! Roll the dice and let's bring it on!

The Rules. Victor Blom won't take any nonsense, and neither will I!

 

The Day that almost killed off Isildur1 - VIP-Grinders.com

 

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. 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, whose pick has died. 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. NEW RULE: You must play your Joker, if you have a hit with one, by the end of St Andrews Day (30 November 2020). If you hit with a Joker after 30 November, you have 2 days or up until 31 December 2020 (whichever is earlier), to nominate your substitute card.

 

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 2020 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 2020.

 

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 (e.g. supercentenarian, oldest person in a country) is included, but they must still obviously garner a qualifying obit.

 

NEW EXCITING RULE: At the end of each month, all players will be invited over to the Card Roulette Table. As host I will draw an equivalent number of cards from Random.org IN ONE GO from one pack to the number of teams participating. That draw will be posted on the thread and players will receive a number of points based on their position in the field. For example, I will always get the first card, as my team shall be first to be posted, second team in gets card 2 and so on. The value attributed to each card will be the same as those for a substitute outlined below (Ace high = 14 points, King = 13 points, etc etc down to a deuce = 2 Points). So if there are 30 teams, 30 cards are drawn and allocated, so your timing of putting your team in may be crucial.

 

The game will open on 1 July 2020 and deaths on 1 July according to official sources up to and including 31 December 2020 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 2021, 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!

Ok so we are underway, having welcomed the first 2 guests to the game. I have PM'ed my team to Yorkshire Banker for safekeeping as his was the first team in with all 25 and 5 subs positions filled (come on markb4, one more sub please!).

 

Remember, still the whole month of June to get those teams in! Game doesn't open until 1 July.

 

Feel free as you arrive to take some dips and chips from the bar!

As you have me blocked for some unknown reason, which to be utterly frank is pretty disgusting when you run deadpools as it prevents the ability to PM you - and you've offered no contingency to enter - and have ignored by previous request for a way to enter if you've blocked people, I have took the liberty of asking YorkshireBanker to forward my team to you. I hope this satisfies you as a method of entry.

Silly Gooseberry, if you want a survivor from my first DDP team (Etta was the joker!) then there's always Peregrine Worsthorne or Leslie Philips. The latter of whom I picked due to reports he was very frail and on his last legs. That was nearly a decade ago.

Both very tempting suggestions!

I think back in 2002 when Etta James died I must have been very busy and preoccupied baking my mans bread and making sure hes well fed and didnt have much time  to take  notice of which celebrities had died in the news!:D;)

Hi YW

 

I think the new joker rule is a good idea - means if it is close people know where they are leading up to the end of the game.

 

Re the above New Exciting Rule - I think I am missing something - if the cards are drawn one by one at random what is the advantage of getting the first card as opposed to the thirtieth?

 

Cheers, GUN

Ok, for the Roulette, the random cards are all drawn in one go.

 

Say there are 5 teams (as there are at present). I would draw 5 cards together (not including Jokers obvs) from Random.org, not one by one. Those card values would be allocated in the order they came out to the teams playing in the order they were submitted to the game.

 

Now, there are a limited number of Kings, Aces, etc (4 values, 1 for each suit). This becomes more important with a larger number of teams. So say your team is #15, but all the aces are drawn for positions 2, 7, 9 and 12. You cannot get the maximum number of points because you cannot draw an Ace.

 

I mean, it will become clear as we play and it will be completely random so keeping the spirit of the game.
