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 = 2,978,640.

7 numbers - Precision (Even + Straight (6-Zero)).
6 or 5 numbers - Straight (6-Zero).

[Good Black Friday, all.

You survived the massive food event. Now it's time to relax, and shop the Black Friday deals. Go ahead. I have a ton of leaves that have been advancing on the house, thanks to the wind. As soon as that is cleared up, I'll consider letting my fingers do the walking on the keyboard.]

7 or 6 numbers - Spork (9's,7's,5's).
5 numbers - Two Pair (9's and 7's, w/ a 5 kicker).

[Good Thanksgiving, all.

It is a national food holiday after all. The Spork is the most appropriate hand for this day. I may have to acknowledge food more in the winning hands, but that's for another day. Need to prep some vegetables for dishes today. Fell off the eating right wagon on the road. Or maybe it was more like I was hanging off the side of the eating right wagon. That sounds more appropriate.]

[Good Wednesday, all.

Nippor, you could be stuck with much lesser hands than Duplexes. They are fun when they show up. I'm stuck being Bewildered, although I'm fully aware of what season it is, and where I am. The sensation of driving has stopped, so I'm ready to help prepare the holiday meals. No turkey on Thursday. Didn't push that envelope. Maybe over the weekend.

Barb, enjoy those bonus points. Christmas may arrive early for you this year. 7 numbers is a present that can keep giving, all year long.]

I'm back home. Everything went better than expected, and except for some strong winds and rain the return trip was uneventful. I am grateful to have the opportunity to take this trip, and see family. No matter what the calendar says, Thanksgiving and gratitude are mindsets, and can be applied at any time of the year.

The cat is in my lap, and we have achieved reunification. I am grateful.]

Total points: 019,990.

Nippor, are you getting a sense of the possibilities 7 number hands offer? A Duplex is a powerful hand. I believe it's your 1st. Barb will be joining the 7 number club very soon. Bonus points showed up again yesterday. Probably for the holiday week only. But still, that could be an extra 7K of points that gets everyone closer to their next level. I like it.

FYI: In the 6 (and 7) number game, a Full House beats a Four of a Kind because it uses more of a player's numbers in the hand.

* - I posted a future hand, and didn't have the points to cover it. I'm disqualified for the 11/22 hand. Being on the road changes things.

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!

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.

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.]
