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?

So tired.

Did anyone see the partial solar eclipse today? I forgot all about it, and I think I was even out and about at the time it was best here. Bummer!

Can't blame the cat this morning. Just couldn't sleep at 3:00 AM. The stars are relatively bright in the moonless sky this morning. It's still warm considering it's eight days away from Halloween. I'm so not complaining.]

Yes, GBTPP wipes the table down with a hypo-allergenic, sanitizing wipe before each hand. The fragrance is a little strong, but dissipates before any hands are played. I like the tropical fruit, warm breeze, and mountain air scent combination.

Thank you all for playing.]

Thought picking the outcome of NFL games would be easier. It hasn't changed since the beginning. I suppose that's why there's an industry dedicated towards it. Don't bet on the games. My percentage is not good, on a good day.]

Just had to play that one over in my mind again. The orchestra in the background is delightful, and it ends excellently. I'll probably review other songs in a brief manner in the future. Especially if bonus points come back, and I feel a need to come up with names for the 8 number hands.]

GBTPP acknowledges the game has some unexpected variables, for players not used to 6 or 7 number hands. The winning hands are certainly weighted towards using all the numbers a hand contains, if possible.]

Nippor, I'm glad you appreciate Mr. Campbell's music. We are losing a whole generation of singers and songwriters that had a substantial influence in my life, yours, Barb's, Chris', and others. And I'm happy you were able to avoid that curvy canyon road accident. There is no "good" time to be hanging over a cliff waiting for the fire department to "extract" you from your vehicle.]

Chris46, your submitted hand is substantial, and will count in a hand. From the date/time stamp of the post, it appears that the hand was submitted after Midnight in your timezone (Eastern). Is that correct? It will be counted in the 10/17 game, unless you inform me otherwise.

[Good Tuesday, all.

Nippor and Barb, I'm very proud of you two. You are active Gasbuddy members, and have shown that you have the dedication to achieve things that so many others don't. Yes, I rarely break a sweat while reporting gas prices, but it allows someone else to avoid being gouged when a lower priced station is just down the road, and not quite visible yet. It's the reason I joined. Got gouged really bad near the Grand Canyon about two years before I joined Gasbuddy, and always remembered that incident. Technology can be of extreme benefit when well thought out ideas are translated into computer code.]

GBTPP observes the gas prices falling in several key parts of the country. Wondering how long the prices will fall. Last year, the national average hit its low on November 11th (Veteran's Day). It would be a shame for the average low to be recorded before Halloween this year.
