Arrow WSOP Sheep Game - Reveal June 4th

Sheep is a fun game. It's kinda like Family Fortunes/Feud where you want to pick the most obvious answer and match as many people as possible. You get 1 point for your answer and 1 additional point for every person who gave the same answer as you. Highest score wins.

tl;dr - Give me the most obvious answer to every question.

RESEARCH IS ALLOWED if you don't know a good answer but you cannot confer/collude with other players and you cannot reveal your answers (or even hint at your answer/possible answers) in the thread. Nothing to influence anyone else who might want to play the game.

NO DUPLICATES are allowed. If you give the same answer more than once then the first instance will score normally but you will score zero points for all subsequent instances of that answer.

ANSWERS DO NOT HAVE TO BE CORRECT. If I asked for "An honest President" then we would not have to debate if an answered president was honest or not. Every non duplicate answer would score points. Even if you answered "Al Gore" or "Banana Milkshake" then you would score a point. Obviously you are trying to match other players so putting a random answer is not usually a good strategy.

TO PLAY YOU NEED TO PM ME YOUR ANSWERS. You should not quote the questions. You should not number your answers. You should send an answer per line of your PM with no spaces between the lines. You should not include any message in your PM. If you break any of these rules then it's not the end of the world, but it creates more work for me.

Answers should be in this sort of format:
Quote:
Answer 1
Answer 2
Answer 3
etc
SIMILAR ANSWERS MAY OR MAY NOT BE GROUPED. If someone answers NYC and someone else answers New York and a third person says New York City then I'll very likely group the answers since they all have the same meaning. If I believe your answer may have a different meaning to someone else's then I reserve the right to not group them. Modding decisions will be arbitrary and capricious.

The Questions

1). Name someone who has won the WSOP Main Event more than once
2). Name a winner of the 50k PPC or One Drop High Roller
3). Name someone who was a part of the first ever November Nine but didn't win
4). Name someone who has won multiple WSOP bracelets in the same year
5). Name someone who has won a WSOPE bracelet
6). Name a controversial inductee to the WSOP Poker Hall of Fame
7). Name a mostly forgotten WSOP Main Event champion
8). Name a celebrity that you might see at the WSOP this year
9). Name someone who has either won the Seniors or Ladies event at the WSOP
10). Who do you think will win the WSOP Main Event this year

If you have any queries then ask me either in thread or via PM (Via PM if you think it might hint at or give away some answers).

The game will be revealed on June 4th.

Re: WSOP Sheep Game - Reveal June 4th

The reasons I'm running this game:

-For the fun of playing the game
-To get people hyped up for the WSOP this year
-To support and plug the WSOP Fantasy Draft
-To let people know about the sub forum Puzzles and Other Games where fun games like this any many other ones take place all the time.

Re: WSOP Sheep Game - Reveal June 4th

it would of been better to do a reverse sheep, so that only unique answers score points. If I said name a main event champion, you want the most obscure, but not too obscure because if everyone picks that guy, they get nothing. Much more game theory involved with that method.

Re: WSOP Sheep Game - Reveal June 4th

For anyone who wants to know why I didn't run a PEEHS:

PEEHS works one of two ways:

-Trivia based with no research and a quick reveal
-Prediction based with research and a slow reveal

I don't want a no research game since everyone should be researching their WSOP Fantasy League team.

I don't want a slow reveal because I'm already running the WSOP Fantasy League over the summer and got zero offers of help when I asked for some late summer help.

A sheep game involves research and a quick reveal which is what I want.

I would genuinely like it if someone else took it upon themselves to run a season long prediction based PEEHS for the WSOP. I would enter but I cannot devote the time to run it.

Tried to answer everything as fast as I could (kind of like the final stage of Family Feud). That is, except for this:

Seriously. That was the only one I decided to actually look up. After all, if I could think of him offhand, then he can't really be forgotten.
