Nonregular Icosahedrin Request

Is it possible to take a regular icosahedron -- which is used as a die -- and deform it in such a way that the probabilities of rolling the faces creates something similar to probabilities yielded by a 2d10-1??? Can't be exactly the same as 2d10-1, of course. Maybe it makes my question better/more specific if I make a table.... here it is, the probability table I am thinking of:

% die face
1.0 1
2.0 2
3.0 3
4.0 4
5.0 5
6.0 6
7.0 7
8.0 8
9.0 9
10.0 10
10.0 11
9.0 12
8.0 13
7.0 14
6.0 15
5.0 16
4.0 17
3.0 18
2.0 19
1.0 20

Something seems to be wrong. If I add up all the probabilities I get 110% instead of 100%
