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?

Thank you for the kind wishes, Nippor. It was a pleasant day, and we went to a friend's going away party in the evening. That was fun.

The headaches don't usually come on during the day, but one just passed, so I need to get this posted. They remain a mystery. Just not the kind I want.]

I'd better hand the Tiara to the wife, since today is our 28th wedding anniversary. I'm man enough to wear it, but I've learned over the years to share. The bonus points are nice also.

Brutal night, last night. Poor food choices caused my system to reject them. It's the reject via eject that's unpleasant. However, the relief is immediate.]

Yay on no headache for you last night, DTM!

It was over 100º here again today, and is supposed to be 101º tomorrow. Thankful that it will at least get down to 68 or 70º tonight, which allows us to give the A/C a break for a few hours in the morning.

Well, DTM, it's MY night for a headache! Just a sinus one...nothing that some extra meds won't take care of, hopefully. I hope you're having a wonderful, headache-free night!

Still getting the extra points here too! Don't know what's going on, but I won't complain! ;)

Got more points today. Haven't been able to find an explanation for it. I'm not really complaining. It's like the Big Mythical Bank finding a banking error in my favor. It may not last, but if you're getting extra points also, then whatever hands posted with the points (while they last) will count.

Another day, another 1000 extra points. This is really jacking with hand selection. I'd be nice if the Mods would announce something. Whether temporary or permanent. You can adjust the hands form to 400 points per gas price reported to allow for the extras.

Anybody else end up with extra points, today? I'm supposing that an error was made and the points will be returned to the points bin. Just under the "Here are the points" sign. Can't just have points dropping all over the floor. Someone could get hurt. It's all fun and games, until...

No coffee, no headache. So much for my practice of over-clocking my brain. Why only in the Fall and Winter, excluding this episode? It's rhetorical. Don't get a headache thinking about it. I've had more than enough for everybody.]

# of players: 5

Winner: Chris46
Winning hand: Dire Straights (2-6, x2).
Total points: 563,425.

[Pushes the big pile of mythical cash to Chris46. Excellent play!

GBTPP designates the 08/24 hand as Picnic Spork Sunday, and reserves the right to assign a fun moniker since 60% of players posted the hand. It's like having a virtual picnic.

Chris46, You did have a Square (5# Straight, x4), but since there are only 6 numbers in play, your hand became a Dire Straights (5# Straight, x2). In that hand, your 7th number (the 2) is excluded. Though it was enough to take the hand.

yjsk2100, you indeed had a Four of a Kind (Zeroes). The value of a Four of a Kind is reduced when playing the 6 number hands.

Please, please read the rules, and use the hands form. They are available 24/7.

So many good hands yesterday.

Correction: The 08/22 hand's # of players, and #'s in play got transposed. It should have been 3 players, and 6 #'s in play. The outcome was unchanged, so Nippor can continue with her weekend spending spree. I'm claiming caffeine deprivation as the cause. No coffee yesterday. No headache last night.
