    TORCHBEARER 2020: the picks, torch match notices, results

    good day all, The 2020 TORCH prize is ready to be sent out. The leader is Daughter of Sukubidubidu with only 10 points. It’s now 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. 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 RANK. Kiritsubaki missed the 25-point bullseye by only one position with the MAKUSHITA 16 EAST pick but gets 10 points for being the closest. Kaito was close as well. In all, 15 players earned FINAL TORCH RANK points! Kudos to Sagi & kedevash as they were the only two players that had TORCH MATCH points during the year. MAKUSHITA 6 EAST......(1 kedevash & Sagi) MAKUSHITA 6 WEST...... MAKUSHITA 7 EAST......(2 points: Ayagawa) MAKUSHITA 7 WEST......(3 points: Pandaazuma & Taiga) MAKUSHITA 8 EAST......(4 points: Itachi & Uinseann) MAKUSHITA 8 WEST...... MAKUSHITA 9 EAST...... MAKUSHITA 9 WEST......(5 points: Hoshihitomi) MAKUSHITA 10 EAST.....(6 points: Bumpkin) MAKUSHITA 10 WEST.....(7 points: Nantonoyama) MAKUSHITA 11 EAST..... MAKUSHITA 11 WEST.....(8 points: Andonishiki) MAKUSHITA 12 EAST..... MAKUSHITA 12 WEST..... MAKUSHITA 13 EAST..... MAKUSHITA 13 WEST..... MAKUSHITA 14 EAST..... MAKUSHITA 14 WEST.....(9 points: Kaito) MAKUSHITA 14 EAST..... FINAL TORCH RANK: MAKUSHITA 15 WEST... MAKUSHITA 16 EAST.....(10 points: Kiritsubaki) MAKUSHITA 16 WEST..... MAKUSHITA 17 EAST..... MAKUSHITA 17 WEST..... MAKUSHITA 18 EAST..... MAKUSHITA 18 WEST..... MAKUSHITA 19 EAST..... MAKUSHITA 19 WEST..... MAKUSHITA 20 EAST..... MAKUSHITA 20 WEST.....(7 points: Screeching Owl) MAKUSHITA 21 EAST.....(6 points: Tsubame) MAKUSHITA 21 WEST..... MAKUSHITA 22 EAST..... MAKUSHITA 22 WEST..... MAKUSHITA 23 EAST..... MAKUSHITA 23 WEST..... MAKUSHITA 24 EAST..... MAKUSHITA 24 WEST..... MAKUSHITA 25 EAST..... So at the end of the final RANK point distribution we have Daughter of Sukubidubidu & Kiritsubaki tied for first place with 10 points each. FINAL TORCH RIKISHI points will be in the next post.
