    Posted: 18 Dec 2019 at 11:48am
Its back! The thread that the hapless Isaac Solomon described as “ghoulish”, claimed no one cared about and generally disparaged has gone on to generate (to use his favourite metric) a tick under 300,000 views in 12 months and goes from strength to strength each year. Of course I’m talking about the ever popular Dead Pool, which returns for 2020. There are two weeks to go until 1 January so get your entries in. Plenty of time to think carefully about who will be visited by the grim reaper in the next 12 months. Entries close 11:59pm Sydney time 31 December.

Rules:
- List 10 people (celebrities preferably) who will kick the bucket in 2020
- No people with already known death dates (eg death row inmates) OR with pre-existing terminal illnesses where death is likely in 2020
- Death must be confirmed by a reputable source as occurring during 2020 in the location of their death – IE Someone dying in the USA at 6am Sydney time 1 January will not count.

Scoring:
Correct selection = 10 points
Bonus points = 100 minus age at death (eg a 75 year old correct selections scores 100-75=25 bonus points. NOTE: If your selection is over 100 you will lose points here.

Prize:
I will again put up a $20 bonus bet to the winner.
Scoring to be done individually at the end of the year
I may or may not check these reported scores. Depends if I could be bothered.

Enjoy this wonderful competition!

Don’t worry, anything under 110 scores a positive number of points.

This activity requires an Official TBV Dead Pool Analyst to be appointed (not the first time I've suggested it). I do not see it as part of my duties as the Official TBV Statistical Officer - I have enough on my plate as it is. The prime aim would be to produce a monthly cumulative Dead Pool Leaderboard. Anyone who is honest, reliable & can add two numbers together would be suitable qualified for the role. Whale, E&E, Rusty, Afross & SAINTLY may therefore be better off looking at alternative, less demanding roles.

No way Rod Laver , the Harry Hopman fitness is what got him through the stroke situation, he's one tuff mother and a survivor.

Another 30-odd hours to go for anyone else wishing to have a free roll at a bonus bet. Where is Saintly?

103 would be about 20 years too long for me. Hope to cark it well before hitting triple figures.
