    Next, the END-OF-YEAR TORCH POINTS for RANK. Three players, hakutorizakura & Kirinoumi & Tsubame were just 3 ranks from the unclaimed bullseye. In all, 17 players earned FINAL TORCH RANK points! Kudos to Akinomaki & MumboJumbo & Pitinosato & Wakatake & Obana for scoring both RIKISHI and RANK points. And special kudo mention to Kirinoumi who was the 10-point closest in both RIKISHI and RANK; proof that this truly is a skill game. : - ).

    TORCHBEARER 2022: the picks, torch match notices, results

    good day all, The 2022 TORCH prize is ready for the winner. The TORCH MATCH point leader is Ryoshishokunin with 9 points. But now it’s time to award the end-of-year FINAL TORCH POINTS. To recap the rules for end-of-year TORCH POINTS, 25 points are awarded if you picked the FINAL TORCH position RANK or RIKISHI. Additional points are awarded to the next 10 closest picks. (10 points to the closest pick, down to 1 point for the 10th closest pick). We’ll start with the END-OF-YEAR TORCH POINTS for RIKISHI. Obana hits the 25-point bullseye with his TOMASHOHO pick. And then the next ten closest rikishi picks were determined. In all, 12 players earned FINAL TORCH RIKISHI points with Kirinoumi and Pitinosato just one-off from the bullseye.
