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?

Sorry I didn't make it back last night before bed, DTM. I didn't get my gas prices until later in the day, and was too tired before bed to think about poker hands!

Sounds like you'll be traveling during the pre-TG holiday traffic rush. Be careful, and drive safely!

Odd (1,3,5,7,9).

[Good Wednesday, all.

After a while, an Odd can look kind of weak, especially when other players are visiting the Love Shack for the 1st time. The 3M point mark is just around the corner. It could be a deluxe Christmas present. Although I've been slamming Santa pretty hard in the "were you nice or naughty today?" forum. A lump of coal is still an energy source.]

Nippor, very sharp play. You think you can get used to all these new hands that you're seeing? I don't have to ask you about the zero/Zero thing. You've got it down cold.

Barb, it's tough to go up against hands like Nippor's (I'm sure they're lovely), and thank you for sticking with it.

Just when I thought some Huge hands would show up, they did. Just not for me yet. Since starting the game, nobody has played a Quasar until Nippor did it. Well done. Been waiting for one myself. Soon enough.

Will head back home at the end of the week. I will take pictures, but the grand Fall foliage has all fallen. Hopefully not too much snow and ice.]

DTM, sounds like the weather is cold out where you are. Hope that you packed warm clothing, and your ice scraper! I don't envy you having to use one of those! Haven't used one more than a handful of times in the last 24 years, since we moved to SoCal! Almost forgot how to use one when I was in MN last year during the polar vortex! My hubby hated that more than anything; standing out in below zero temps, wind blowing, snow making visibility difficult (even right in front of you!), and standing there scraping off all of your windows while breathing in the car's exhaust! Ugh! Just the thought of it makes me cringe! That said, I do love the picturesque scene of a winter day with freshly fallen snow, and the fresh, clean look it gives everything. :)

As for the run on great hands, I think Barb's turn is next! :)

Thanks, DTM! It is possible that there could be only 7-number players playing on a given day, so I guess it's a good idea to post both hands like you do. But, I'm not going to think about another hand until you're back and can help if I need it. :)
