The 2019 Western Democracy Memorial Dead Pool

Congratulations to Boog23, runaway winner of the 2018 Kim's Uncle Memorial Dead Pool!

Welcome one and all to this year's Dead Pool. All new players welcome. The rules are simple: ten choices, one your Joker (double points). You get 100 points minus your choice's age if they die (e.g. if they are 56, you will get 44 points). Choices made up to January 7th will be active immediately; after that, we return to the usual anti-ambulance-chasing rule of a one-week wait until you get the points.

Runners and riders:

Heh, great title

Shadrack22 - 30 Dec 2018 09:16:55 (#2 of 456)

I see my selections are in red, PR. Do you need me to confirm my list or anything like that?

SheikYerbouti - 30 Dec 2018 09:21:53 (#3 of 456)

The Bossab appears to have a single strategy and stick to it.

Reindeerlia - 30 Dec 2018 09:24:14 (#4 of 456)

Good thread title PR.

PaperRustler - 30 Dec 2018 09:40:11 (#5 of 456)

Sorry Shadrack, should have explained in post #1 - red means you've already confirmed your 2019 selections; black means you need to do so.

Shadrack22 - 30 Dec 2018 09:47:50 (#6 of 456)

Okay, thanks PR.

TableTopJoe - 30 Dec 2018 10:02:40 (#7 of 456)

Thanks for doing all this, PR.

Billy Connolly for my vacancy, please.

Jacob_Richter - 30 Dec 2018 11:49:58 (#8 of 456)

Richter's runners and riders for 2019 are:

Roman Reigns, John McCririck, Fatima Ali, Michael Robinson, Bill Turnbull, Jill Gascoine, Lorna Luft, Linda Nolan, Clive James, Leah Bracknell (Joker).

TYVM PR.

TommyDCMBR8 - 30 Dec 2018 11:57:39 (#9 of 456)

Big Joe's knocked it back before, I hope all the Reigns backers are wrong and that he does so again.

RosyLovelady - 30 Dec 2018 12:43:00 (#10 of 456)

I thought I took part in this last year, but evidently not.

Michael Heseltine, Lord Dubs, Lady Howe, Nigel Lawson, Rod Laver, A S Byatt, Diana Athill, Liza Minnelli, Wayne Sleep, Marianne Faithfull (joker).

Many thanks, PR.

CinqueCento - 30 Dec 2018 13:42:59 (#11 of 456)

Can I roll over the same list please, PR? Thank you.

MrCinq won't be playing this year, having checked out on 39 points earlier this month.

dreams99 - 30 Dec 2018 13:45:26 (#12 of 456)

I'm sorry to hear it, CC.

PaperRustler - 30 Dec 2018 13:52:02 (#13 of 456)

Good lord, Cinque. That's terrible - so sorry to hear it.

CinqueCento - 30 Dec 2018 14:09:12 (#14 of 456)

I know. And he wasn't even on my list, the monster.

Thank you. It was a bit of a blow.

airynothing - 30 Dec 2018 14:26:23 (#15 of 456)

Can I make one minor change, PR:

Clive James, Ronnie Wood, Valerie Harper, Ant McPartlin, Roman Reigns, Paul Gascoigne, Fatima Ali, Michael J Fox, Anne Robinson, Leah Bracknell (Joker)

Thanks.

pmcblonde - 30 Dec 2018 15:25:38 (#16 of 456)

I’m so sorry Cinque. What a shite year 2018 has been

Moschops - 30 Dec 2018 16:14:52 (#17 of 456)

Really sorry to hear that Cinque

Jacob_Richter - 30 Dec 2018 16:20:28 (#18 of 456)

Same here.

TableTopJoe - 30 Dec 2018 16:24:13 (#19 of 456)

Me too, Cinque.

airynothing - 30 Dec 2018 16:49:50 (#20 of 456)

If you hadn’t told them, Cinque, you could have run two lists and doubled your chances of winning.
