I was checking my Buddies point totals today, and it hit me! Let's see who has the best poker hand made up of your Total Points. Zeros absolutely don't count, except for the last digit of the point total, and the hand can go as high as the Buddies points.
*
A point total of 597,860 would be a 6 card straight. A point total of 678,095 would not be a straight, because the zero isn't in the last position. 6 of a kind, 7 carded straights, and more are possible.
*
For example, DenverDonJuan this morning has 2,525,225 points. That is 3 fives and four deuces. A beefy hand. Can you beat it?

Folks, the poker game is no longer being played here. The new forum pages have been created, and based on your Total Points are the games you may play.

For people with less than 100,000 points, you'll want to click on this link.

For people with more than 100,000, but less than 1,000,000 points, You'll want to click this link.

For people with more than 1,000,000 points, you'll want to click this link.

And the rules have been updated, so click here to take a look at them.

Regards,
DTM

I have Grand-Mothered Barb into the 7-Number game. She has played long enough, and is so close to her million points (like in the next 10-14 days), that she qualifies. She may not be the only one, but I'm not thinking of anyone else right now that has her qualifications. DTM

Awesome, DTM! I'm amazed that my Yellow Brick Road held up, and really excited about the new game for 7-digit hands only! :)

See ya later after I get some points for today.

Good Wednesday, all.

[First off, Nippor! OMG! What a sweet Yellow Brick Road to liven up the holiday season. Yes! It held up. Had another person played, you'd still have a 5-number Straight to fall back on. But it's awesome when the stars align to give you a Big hand.

Second, I thought this forum page could stay active as a place to communicate game information, or just chat. It's got about a year of history, and you may have it bookmarked in your favorites (maybe?).

Lastly, since the new pages are ready and I tend to post early anyway, I'll start. I'll need feedback from you to see how well the separation of games is going.

Regards,
DTM

GBTPP 12/09 hand results:
# of players: 2
#'s in play: 7
Winner: Nippor
Winning hand: Yellow Brick Road (zero-6).
Total points: 1,046,325.

[Slides the large pile of mythical cash to Nippor. Magnificent play!

The preparations (for the most part) have been completed. The rules have been updated, and the Winning hands were moved to a separate page.
The winning order (for 6 and 7 number hands) has changed, slightly.

GBTPP has three new forum pages.

Classic is the 5-Number game for people with less than 100,000 Total Points. It is located at: http://www.denvergasprices.com/Forum_MSG.aspx?master=&category=1332&topic=594235&page_no=1&FAV=Y

Enhanced is the 6-Number game for people with more than 100,000, but less than a million Total Points. It is located at: http://www.denvergasprices.com/Forum_MSG.aspx?master=&category=1332&topic=594236&page_no=1&FAV=Y

Super is the 7-Number game for people with more than a million Total Points. It is located at: http://www.denvergasprices.com/Forum_MSG.aspx?master=&category=1332&topic=594238&page_no=1&FAV=Y

They're ready to go, and I have bid adieu to some forums that I was regularly "contributing"(?) to. The rules allow you to "play down" if you have enough Total Points. Can you smell that new forum smell? The movers are just setting up the new tables and chairs. We can start at any time.

The updated rules and hands form are available 24/7.

Thank you all for playing.]

I've just got to post this Yellow Brick Road, even tho it only counts for the 7 digit hand play. It leaves me with crap for the 6 digit hand, but it's too good to pass up on. :)

[Good Tuesday, all.

Here's hoping it's not too hot, not too cold, not too wet, and not too dry where you are. Just looked up porridge, and it may be a hot dish, but it doesn't interest me as much as other hot dishes (Cream of Wheat, Grits, Oatmeal) do.

Had the wife read the revised rules, and she's better with the English language than I am. You may notice a style difference in my postings. Or not.]

Nippor, isn't that always the case with leaves? You rake and gather in stages, since they usually won't cooperate and drop all at once. They don't have to. They're like the phone company that way. "We don't care. We don't have to." to quote Earnestine, played by Lily Tomlin on Laugh-In (had to look that one up).]

There's probably some good College Football on today. I may be cooking, or cleaning, or doing laundry, or getting busy with some leaves outside. The Sun was out yesterday, which made the 50's workable. Got a break in session with the new leaf blower/vac. Durability and functionality are the keys for yard maintenance equipment to earn their usefulness around here. I'm becoming more Old School every day.]

GBTPP will setup the forum page for a 7 number only game. I've been thinking about separating them for a while. It's less fun when a Big hand comes along, and it doesn't count. I'll give some details when I have it figured out.

DTM, I like the idea of your Super GBTPP edition. :) I think it'd be something that I'd enjoy. It'd save me time from trying to figure out TWO hands, when with 7 digits it's hard enough thinking of that ONE big hand! :) I'm IN!

Here's to a nice day, and hoping not too many places get flooded out in California. I'd be cool if there was a way to capture that water and not have so much damage to other things. Like in Star Trek IV, The Voyage Home, when Kirk and his crew beam two whales and a volume of water onto the Kligon Bird of Prey to take back to Earth (in a later time). Mainly the volume of water in this case. I'm out there a ways, and I know it.]

Nippor, excellent hand recognition there. Very soon the 7 numbered hands will be the norm, and I'll have to watch my game that much closer. The 6 numbered hand you posted was a pair of zeroes. An example of the value of the 7th number being "in play".

GBTPP is considering starting a new forum page for 7 number players (or higher), called Super GBTPP. The original GBTPP page (this one) would be for 6 and 5 number players. Any thoughts?

Made it back safe and sound. Saw close to a dozen accidents, tho, on the freeways. One was just a minute or so before we got to it, in the carpool lane, which I was in. Car sitting perpendicular to the lane, had crashed into the railing/center divider, and both passengers were still in the car. Looked to be calling 911. Front end damage as well as rear end damage. Also saw another accident with a car turned onto it's side; that was on the way home. Several areas with extremely low visibility. Roads were very slick, after not having any rain for months. Glad to be home!

Thanks for the info and personal experience re: TV purchasing, DTM. I'll let you know if we find one that we like. We're looking at a 32" also, to replace an old 26" one in the family room. The space won't accommodate anything bigger.

I'll be driving in the big rain storm to a dr.'s appt. in LA today. Glad to have a friend along for company and to help watch for idiot LA drivers.

[Good Tuesday, all.

Nippor, I'll keep a good thought for you to get a great deal this holiday season, or whenever. Product quality and reliability are tops in my opinion. Did a lot of research before getting our current LCD TV. It replaced a CRT TV, and we had to adapt to the new adapters involved. It was a full tech upgrade cycle for us. Very pleased with the LG I'm using as my computer's main display, our main TV, and it's connected to a Roku box to stream Netflix and Amazon video. The picture quality is so much better than the CRT, and we went with an economy model (32"). It's nice when evaluating poker hands, or posting comments. I'm done blathering for now. Happy shopping.

Barb, so much for the holiday bonus points spirit. You're on track to crack the 7 numbers on or about Dec. 21st. In time for Christmas.]

I'm sure they'll have plenty more sales between now and Christmas. :)

My internet connection is barely crawling along. It must be a Cyber Monday effect. Just need to get this one posted, and can let this site rest for a while.

Nippor, sweet hand identification! You have the zero/Zero thing down, and the Love Shack can warm things up a little on a late Autumn day.

Barb, it looks you'll be joining the 7 number club on or about the Winter Solstice, thanks to those bonus points. Will they continue into this week? We'll have to see. It could be sooner than we think!]

GBTPP thanks you for taking time out of your busy schedules, and playing the game. Fairly soon, 7 numbered hands will become the norm, and hands like the Love Shack, Yellow Brick Road, or something else exciting will present itself. Please prepare yourselves.

Thank you again for playing.]

7 numbers - Scaffold (Even, x2).
6 or 5 numbers - Even (2,4,6,8,Zero).

[Good Sunday, all.

Went to go get a leaf blower/vac and the car stopped working. Rearranged my priorities for the weekend, and spent some time with Mother-In-Law. Updated her computer files, and chatted. Will have to hoof it to the store to get food storage bags, since that frozen turkey I got on Wednesday, is thawed in the refrigerator, and needs to be cooked soon. Like today.

The rules and hands form are available 24/7.

Thank you all for playing.]

GBTPP 11/29 Small business Saturday hand results:
# of players: 3
#'s in play: 6
Winner: DrivingtoMars
Winning hand: Full House (Zeroes filled with 9's).
Total points: 980,900.

[Drags the large pile of mythical cash to me.

GBTPP acknowledges that the listing of a few specific 5 number winning hands in the 6 number winning hand listing were assumed, but omitted. In a 6 number hand, the 5# Straight beats a Four of a Kind, an Odd/Even beats the 5# Straight, and the Full House beats an Odd/Even. I try to be fair and consistent in the evaluation of the hands.]

Full House (Zeroes filled with 9's).

[The leaf blower stopped working after I got the patio cleared off. Honestly. It was warm enough to go a while longer, but after 8 years, I'm guessing the unit had had enough. Didn't choose to replace it on Black Friday. Probably today.

Barb, very nice hand yesterday. Before you know it, you'll be playing a 7 numbered game with more exotic winning hands.

Safe travels to all during this weekend, and all year round.]
