WHAT IS SEASON LONG PEEHS?
I will ask you 30 questions about WSOP 2018 and it’s your job to give me the most obscure correct answer possible.

SCORING
-The lowest overall score is the winner.
-Correct answers score 1 point and 1 additional point for each other person who gave the same answer.
-Incorrect answers will score the sheep score (whether the sheep is correct or not) plus 1 point for each different correct answer given.

ENTRIES
-Research as much as you want when preparing your entry.
-It’s completely free to enter.
-PM me a list of answers to enter by Tuesday 29th May 15:00 Pacific Time.
-Any changes to your entry you can PM me with up to the deadline.

THE QUESTIONS
1). Name a WSOP Bracelet Event that will attract more than 1000 entries
2). Name the nationality of a player that will be at the final two tables of Event #2
3). Name someone with at least $500,000 in cashes on The Hendon Mob who will play Event #3 and/or Event #4
4). Name a former bracelet winner who will play Event #5
5). Name someone who will make it to Day 2 of Event #5
6). Name someone who will have a non No Limit Hold'em cash from one of the first 10 Events

8). Name someone who has never won a bracelet that will play Event #23
9). Name a nationality that will have a 2018 bracelet by June 12th
10). Name someone that will be in the top 100 of the POY on June 16th
11). Name someone that will make it to Day 2 of Event #33
12). Name a Bracelet winner that will play the Seniors or Super Seniors Event
13). Name someone that will be at a final table by June 18th
14). Name someone that will be eliminated short of the money in Event #38

16). Name someone who will play event #52

18). Name someone who has previously been at a WSOP Final Table who will cash Event #6
19). Name someone who will play Day 1A or Day 1B of the Main Event
20). Name a former Main Event champion who will bust Day 1 of the Main Event
21). Name someone who will cash the Main Event
22). Name 5 players. To be correct for this question at least 1 of them needs to finish in the top 100 of the Main Event.
23). Name someone who will cash the $50k NLHE High Roller
24). Name someone who will play the Big One for One Drop
25). Name the nationality of a player who will play the Big One for One Drop
26). Name a card (rank and suit) that will be held by a player when they are eliminated from the Big One for One Drop Final Table

29). Name someone who will have at least one bracelet or at least two final tables this year
30). Name someone who will have 8 or more cashes in Live WSOP Bracelet Events this year


NOTES:
-This game is for WSOP Vegas only
-Nationality is determined by HendonMob Flag
-Previous cashes/earnings/bracelets includes everything up to but not including for the event in question
-Europe/Asia does count for former bracelet winners
-Anything that can't be confirmed by official WSOP reporting will likely be deemed incorrect
-Angleshooting will likely result in an incorrect answer. If in doubt ask.


OTHER THINGS YOU MIGHT WANT TO KNOW BUT AREN’T OF VITAL IMPORTANCE
-Reveals will be periodically through the summer as I find a little time and as the true results are revealed.
-I will try my best to get the winner of this game the custom undertitle “WSOP 2018 PEEHS WINNER”. I don’t see this being a problem provided we get at least 50 entries.
-If multiple of your answers to #22 are correct then the best answer you gave goes towards your score, but the other ones go against your opponents’ score.
-Here's a list of the WSOP Events to get you started

Re: WSOP 2018 SEASON LONG PEEHS REVEAL

A few people asked about how I would know if someone played a certain event since they don't publish full entrant lists anymore.

Let me refer you to the notes:

Some people who are probably reading the notes now for the first time might be regretting some nationality picks right about now...

Re: WSOP 2018 SEASON LONG PEEHS REVEAL

So Q1 will not be fully determined for a long time, so I've going to reveal what people picked now.

Normally I'll reveal after we know what's correct or not, but this is a little taster to see what sort of level people are on.

It's a shame that more people didn't enter because it makes risky answers more risky and safe answers worse value.

But we've got 14 people playing and I'll try to make the game as fun as possible for those who participated

Re: WSOP 2018 SEASON LONG PEEHS REVEAL

Mostly real slam dunk answers by everyone

The biggest risks in my opinion are the 3k and the 1500 mix game

- Last year's 1500 mix game attracted 472 entrants
- Last year's 3k 6max attracted 959 entrants

A reminder that an incorrect answer will score as much as the sheep + 1 point for each different correct answer given. If a single person is wrong in this question then they would score 12 points.

I'm mostly regretting the picks where I just chose an obscure friend that I'm quite sure will play the event :/

Re: WSOP 2018 SEASON LONG PEEHS REVEAL

"likely deemed incorrect" is not the same as "will be deemed incorrect"

I'm sure you can come up with some sort of evidence that I can accept as proof

Failing that he needs to do something completely outrageous to make sure he gets some live reporting done on him

Re: WSOP 2018 SEASON LONG PEEHS REVEAL

Reveal Time!

2). Name the nationality of a player that will be at the final two tables of Event #2

10 different answers were given to this one from 14 different players.

I'm sure that if people realised that there were going to only be 14 entrants then they would have played it a little more safe.

I'm going to reveal the answers from worst to best

Re: WSOP 2018 SEASON LONG PEEHS REVEAL

INCORRECT

Recreational Player - Argentinian
BingeThinker - Australian
Gujanator - Israeli
The Mentaculus - Italian
True North - Spanish
darrinc - Swedish


We have a bunch of joint worst answers given from these 6 guys.

Not only did people of these nationalities not make the final 2 tables, they didn't even cash!

Re: WSOP 2018 SEASON LONG PEEHS REVEAL

So these tables were 9 handed which means that you needed to finish in the top 18 to be considered a correct answer.

Our next incorrect only could manage 25th place



Incorrect - Brazilian

Wilbury Twist

Re: WSOP 2018 SEASON LONG PEEHS REVEAL

Final and perhaps most surprising incorrect answer could only manage to get a 21st place



Incorrect - Canadian

Re: WSOP 2018 SEASON LONG PEEHS REVEAL

Onto the correct answers...

Our first correct answer is the most obvious one. If the aim of the game was just to be correct then I'm sure we'd all go for this one

17 of the 18 final two tablists were of this nationality. Here's an example of one of them



Correct - American - 3 points

Smitty300
that_pope
Richiegone

Re: WSOP 2018 SEASON LONG PEEHS REVEAL

So we finish off with an ACE

Like I previously said 17 of the 18 players were American leaving space for 1 more nationality which our final player correctly chose





Correct - British - 1 point

Re: WSOP 2018 SEASON LONG PEEHS REVEAL

So incorrect points are calculated as the sheep score + the number of different correct answers given.

Sheep was 3 (American) and 2 correct answers were given (American and British) and so all incorrect answers score 5 points today.

Scores look like this after 1 question revealed:

Re: WSOP 2018 SEASON LONG PEEHS REVEAL

3). Name someone with at least $500,000 in cashes on The Hendon Mob who will play Event #3 and/or Event #4

I've scoured the chip counts and live reporting and this is what I can find.

I'm willing to correct the scores if Yueqi Zhu is also known as Daniel Zhu (Doubt it though since he'd be known by Rich if anything else).

Re: WSOP 2018 SEASON LONG PEEHS REVEAL

I'm going to accept that as proof even though it's not iron clad and will adjust the scores accordingly.

TChan gets an ACE and the incorrect score for the question is now 6

Re: WSOP 2018 SEASON LONG PEEHS REVEAL

Let's reveal the next 2 questions:

4). Name a former bracelet winner who will play Event #5

Lots of possible correct answers here and lots of different correct answers given. This makes the penalty for being incorrect a little more painful...
