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?

Total points = 2,806,240.

7 numbers - Tiara (Even, x4).
6 numbers - Scaffold (Even, x2).
5 numbers - Even (2,4,6,8,Zero).

[Good Wednesday, all.

Nippor, the rules example is for a "low" straight (zero-5). You were posting a "high" straight (5-9), and the zero wasn't a match to make it a Fremont Street. The 0 isn't a Zero (high), unless it's in the last digit. Rule #7 gives examples of what is and isn't a Zero. The 5th example fits your hand from yesterday. This one seems to get you more than any other. It is the only variable in the game. Please embrace the concept of a number (0) can have multiple values, depending on where in the hand it is. You'll get it, and have that Aha! moment. I know you will.]

Well, crap!

DTM, I looked at this on the rules page, and since the zero isn't in the last position here either, yet it's called a "Fremont Street", I deducted that my hand counted as one: e) Fremont Street (6# Straight). 3 4 1 0 2 5

What am I missing?

[Nippor, you were excited. It looked good. However, the zero was in the wrong position to be a Zero. As a result, your Straight is a 5 number hand (5-9). Had it been 865,970, it would have been a Fremont Street. I'm not always fun when I administer the game, but I'm consistent when evaluating hands. Please try again.

[Pushes the big pile of mythical cash to MissS. Congratulations!

MissS, you have posted the highest "natural" 6 number hand* in the game, and it only comes around once per Million points. Awesome job!

*-Technically, the Half Dozen Eggs hand is higher (Zero beats 5), but only occurs when a 7 number player plays a Million(s) point hand, with 6 numbers in play. I think about this stuff quite a bit.

Well done, MissS! It's been awhile, but you roared back to the table. I see another butt kicking hand in your immediate future also.

Chris, you have to bring your "A" game here, and the hands form can help. It lists the hands available to you on a daily basis, depending on the points you earn. You may have already seen it. This can be quick hit and go game, but it's true flavor is in the numbers, and looking for the patterns.

They've gone crazy with the points now. Yesterday I had my normal 1225 points all day, and today's point total is over 5000? I expect an adjustment, but who knows. It could go higher. That's like all the weekend's points all at once. Even before I've even reported tomorrow's points, which is still a future event. Somebody at Gasbuddy may need some water, a fan, and some medical attention. Soon. Before this point thing gets out of control.]

Sorry Chris, the Dire Straights beats your Three of a Kind. Thank you for playing. The rules list the winning hands, and this is an interesting hand. It is the first time that all players have 7 numbers available for hands. There are quite a few. Please take a look, and happy point gathering.

The rules and hands form are available 24/7.

Note: With Gasbuddy bumping up the points for reporting gas prices, if you are using the hands form, then please change the value for the gas price points from 200 to 400. That will last through this weekend, and then you can change it back. It's the first time I've seen them alter reporting points on a particular weekend. Those wild individuals.]
