Rules:

* Ten selections. You are permitted to add one new person if your pick is correct.
* If you participated in the 2019 Pool, you are permitted to select one keeper. If your keeper passes, you are not permitted to select another person. If you played in a previous year but skipped 2019's pool, you are permitted to use your keeper from your last entry.
* Scoring is 100 - (age) = points.
* Birthday bonus of 1.5x if the celebrity passes on his/her birthday.
* Selection should some have some form of notoriety that can be verified online.
* All selections must be human.
* There is no deadline to enter. If you post your picks in the thread during the 15 day grace period (1/1/20 through 1/15/20), you are permitted to modify your picks because I was lazy and started the 2020 Death Pool much later than usual.
* You are free to post your entry at any time throughout the year. If you post your picks after the new year, you are not permitted to modify your roster until a correct pick on your roster has taken place.
* If your selection hits, feel free to @ me so it shows up in my notifications. If I'm slacking and haven't responded or have an incorrect total (this happens quite a bit), shoot me a message.

*...and please, no murder. This game is for entertainment purposes only.

Scores:

iamjs - 53 (Sy Sperling, Henri Richard, Mr Wrestling II)

So since I played in 2019, I have to select 9 new ones plus a keeper?

10+ a keeper.

The keeper is basically a perk for playing in previous years.

It counts. The 15th was a grace period for free swaps since I posted it late this year.

Ok, good, so down 22-6 thru mid-February. Plenty of time to make that up.

Replace Sy Sperling with Pocket Rocket, Henri Richard.
Really didn't think he would pass so quickly, but knew Richard had been battling Alzheimers for at least five years. RIP Henri.

Replacing him with human scumbag and previous pool member Dylann Roof, who was recently working some hunger strikes into his routine.
