Stern start to the game

Former NBA Commissioner David Stern has died, kicking off our game as 3 players included him on 4 lists: Bob Razem, Kelly Keegan's List 2 and List 4, and Kevin Byrnes all pick up the hit, and move into the Top 4.

Congrats, Bob, Kelly and Kevin!


2020 KDP is now LIVE!

The 2019 edition of Kaufman's Deadpool is over, and a big congratulations goes out to Kelly Keegan, with his 2nd consecutive win, and 6th Career win (across all of his various lists). Kelly had 5 hits and takes home 75% of the collected $640 pot, or $480.

Rookie (!!!) Christina O`Sullivan came in second place, also getting 5 hits (including 1 solo), but coming up shy of first place by only 17 tiebreaker points. Christina gets 15% of the pot ($96).

Brave Sir Robin rounds out the money-winners with his 4 hits (not including a 5th, Disqualified hit - hopefully he's not kicking himself TOO much, as even if that hit had counted it wouldn't have affected the standings, as Yasuhiro Nakasone was over 100 years old). BSR snags the final 10% of the pot ($64).

We've got 61 entries this year - our lowest number since 2004's 48. A few people didn't return (but as always they're all welcome back for 2021!). We've got four new players: Natalie Tyler's husband David Riede, Rich Place's wife Carol, and Christina O`Sullivan's husband (Tobin Lathrop) and son (Charles Lathrop). In addition, we see the return of Nancy Freebery, who took 2019 off.

Now that the game is all fully updated on the site, please take a moment and verify that I've got your lists entered correctly and let me know ASAP of any errors.

Congratulations, everyone! Good luck to all in 2020!
