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 = 2,650,650.

7 numbers - Spork (Zeroes, 6's, and 5's, w/ a 2 kicker).
6 numbers - Spork (Zeroes, 6's, and 5's).
5 numbers - Two Pair (Zeroes and 6's, w/ a 5 kicker).

[Happy Pre-Easter (Prester) to you.

The rules have been updated. Several of the 6 number winning hands were shuffled, to emphasize more possibilities of 6 numbered hands. Several of the hands were renamed. My favorite Glenn Campbell song is Wichita Lineman, and Carefree Highway by Gordon Lightfoot is wonderful. We will lose these musicians in the near future, and as a tribute to them, hands were renamed.

Thank you all for playing.]

GBTPP 04/18 hand results:
# of players: 4
#'s in play: 6
Winner: BluWahoo
Winning hand: Four of a Kind (Zeroes, w/ a 7 kicker).
Total points: 710,000.

[Pushes the big pile of mythical cash to BluWahoo. Interesting hand.

This is the first hand where the kicker has decided the outcome.

It is always best if you have your total points for the day, before you post your hand. With the increase in gas price post points, that could have a substantial impact on posts.

Please review the explanation of the value of 0 versus Zero. I'm concerned that someone may misunderstand its value, and lead to some serious disappointment, or frustration. When it's totally unnecessary.

The rules are available 24/7.

Thank you all for playing.]

DTM, I should have waited until I go out and get some prices today to post, my four-of-a-kind with 5s would beat yours of 0s. Maybe I'll get it and keep for tomorrow! ;)

yjsk2100, thank you for playing your Three of a Kind, and you're starting to get close to 100K points. Which gets you your 6th number when 6 number hands are in play.

Nippor, No nap on Sunday. The listings are time zone adjusted, so the 1st post was at 4:47 AM. The 2nd was at 7:21 AM, after going out and putting gas in the car. It was a nasty weather forecast, and decided to get ahead of the excitement. It's good to know the posts are timezone adjusted. Keeps the times accurate. Thank you for your concern. I'm usually an early riser. Sometimes the cat gets up early, and just expects my dedicated service.
